It’s easy to tell yourself to save money and to have a big-picture idea of where you want to be financially, but it’s much harder to stay on course when a night on the town, a must-have gadget or the convenience of eating out are there to tempt you.
With that in mind, I like to imagine this audio clip as the InvestorPlace equivalent of the Any Given Sunday “inch by inch” speech, except instead of a football game, it’s your financial future. And instead of Al Pacino, it’s Jason Kolinsky of Kolinsky Wealth Management.
Life, football, finance: They’re all games of inches. ”Add up all those inches,” as Pacino’s character Tony D’Amato said, “and that’s going making the [expletive] difference.”
Maybe Tony D’Amato wouldn’t have “pissed away all his money” if he had followed a few of Kolinsky’s steps, too.
Listen to the full audio clip above, and share your own personal tips below.
