Money is a simple subject that is made difficult because people learn about it too late in life. Money is simply a representation of value. It is what enables us to exchange different forms of value with ease. Value itself is based on recognition. As long as what you have is wanted by someone else and the person can exchange it for something considered worthwhile, money is at your service.

There are many things you can do with money. There are loads of information on what you should do with money and there is a war over that because money itself has no value. It’s value is in the fact that it can get all other valuables. It is only a measure. This is why saving money doesn’t make any sense unless there is a strong reason behind it.

However, here are 4 things you can do with money to have a good life:

Investing is simply using your money to support a productive venture that makes life better and yields good returns. Investing is the only way to guarantee a financially buoyant future

2. Make friends with it

There are some high and key places in life where you need friends. By friends, I don’t mean people you chat with every day or go out with from time to time. By friends, I mean people you can trust with sorting out issues for you because of their status and position. You need such people in life. Money can bring you into such people’s lives. A heartfelt gift does the trick

3. Give it for a cause you believe in

A wasted life is a life that stood for nothing throughout its span. If you believe in something, you may not have the time to affirm and support as you would love to, but you can do that with your money. Don’t donate money anyhow because it’s nice and appeals your emotions. Be deliberate and do it for what you believe in

4. Use it to inspire people

Nothing inspires like money. And you don’t have to have a lot of it to inspire people to be productive, efficient or excellent. Creating a platform for the young to display their genius cannot be overdone. This is the reason for competitions. You’d be surprised how many people will take a shot at a prize of $100. It’s often not about the size of the money, it’s about the thrill of being paid for a passion

Do these regularly with money and make your life go sweeter.
