Daily Draw: Llewellyn Tarot ~ Queen of Pentacles

Queen of Pents is, among many other things, a good steward of her money; the word the companion book uses is investor. We can invest in many things but the first thought that came to my mind was the stock market. I am a self-taught investor and use ShareBuilder. This was one of my 'learn something new' projects, like Tarot and has been just as fun, interesting, and rewarding.

One of the key requirements of any kind of financial stewardship is patience. It is hard to feel like you are getting anywhere if all you can tuck away is $5.00 a week. But the beauty of savings accounts is interest. Pretty soon that money begins work for you while you sleep, play, work yourself. Pretty soon you are wondering why you didn't start saving eariler and wouldn't that $3.00 latte taste better if it was working toward your future rather than being pissed away by noon. Baby steps, never to be regretted.

"When we talk about equal pay for equal work, women in the workplace are beginning to catch up. If we keep going at this current rate, we will achieve full equality in about 475 years. I don't know about you, but I can't wait that long." ~ Lya Sorano

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
