will money make you happy?

Princeton University in the US has put a dollar value on happiness. A study showed that NZ$116,000 is the amount you need to earn to be happy. Your happiness goes up the closer you get. But, guess what? Happiness stops going up right there. After that, there’s no point striving for more. No matter how much more you earn, you might feel life is going well, but you won’t feel any happier. In fact, studies have shown that people are happiest when they’re spending money on just a few things: getting rid of money worries, experiences, giving to charity and loved ones, spending on things that give you back time, and owning beautiful things. Did you know that rich people’s faces even look different? A new study from the University of Toronto says differences…

the beginner’s guide to investing

If you’d ever wondered why you should invest and how to get started, by the end of the Summer JUNO Exchange, held in Auckland, you’d have had a really good idea.

how to get rich

There are four main paths people take to get rich, author and financial planner Tom Corley has discovered. The US researcher spent five years analysing how rich people get wealthy and talked to 233 wealthy people, 177 of them self-made millionaires. Here are the paths he discovered. Can you use one to change your life? Saver-Investor In his research, Corley found that a whopping 49 per cent of the rich people he studied were Saver-Investors. “This path is basically living below your means, saving money and then investing that money prudently.” Corley says saving 20 per cent of their after-tax income was the magic figure for most saver-investors. But you won’t get rich in a hurry using this method. Using these habits, it still took on average 32 years to accumulate US$3.3 million. If you start saving…
