Earning money and developing a strong work ethic are great habits.
Make a habit of saving and investing money when you earn it; every time you get paid; whenever you earn or receive it.
Earning money gives us more choices. Earning money helps us get what we want and need, when we want and need it.
Earning money helps us create a better life that is more financially secure, stable and independent.
The more you learn, the more you will probably earn.
There is a difference between earning money and managing money.
You earn money, have your money earn money as well.
Earning money feels good. It builds our confidence and esteem.
Find ways to earn money you enjoy. Earning money can be fun to do. And when it is, it does not seem like work.
Earning money better positions us to not only help ourselves, but help others as well.
Via Susan Doty: Executive Director, The Center for Economic Education and Financial Literacy at The University of Texas at Tyler
I want students to connect the dots between investing in themselves and earning income so that they understand developing valued skills is what enables them to have money they can choose to save or spend.
