UVERY dollar that you spend foolishly,
every proportionate amount of money
that you earn that it would be possible to save and do
not, is only money that you have to work for again.
On the other hand every dollar you putin the bank is
money that is going to constantly work for you.
Which is the best; money always working for you, or
you always working for your money. Come in and
start that bank account. Don't put it off another day.
