Here are 5 golden rules you must follow if you’re looking to succeed at wealth creation and be financially secure.
Rule 1: Financial compatibility
Financial success begins at home. It certainly helps a great deal if your partner is financially compatible with you If you both can manage your finances together to achieve common goals, and if both of you complement each other as far as money matters are concerned, you are on the right track to financial (and marital) harmony.

Rule 4: Starting a career? Aim for the stars
One important factor to consider when you start your career or get a new job at any point in your life is to aim to grow and earn as much as possible. Try and identify how far you can aim to grow within the organisation in terms of earning potential as well as experience and work your way towards it.
Rule 5: Follow your passion and get paid for it
So you got a college degree. Now get a good job and begin your career. This will provide you with a steady income. If it is at all possible, make the effort to make time to follow any of your passions. Make an attempt to make it big, doing what you love. Get additional income in the bargain by monetising your hobby.
For instance, if you enjoy playing a musical instrument, get a gig (a few more than one won’t hurt either) at a local event venue and get your jam on!
Alternatively, if you enjoy teaching, take weekend classes in the subject of your choice. Heard the popular saying, “Pick a profession you really enjoy and you will never have to work a day in your life”? Plain and simple, if you completely enjoy what you do with your life, it definitely will not ‘feel’ like tedious work at all.
