What if I told you that there were certain habits that the rich use on a consistent basis to increase their wealth? Would you want to know what they are? In this article, I will share with you 11 millionaire habits you should be doing now!
Habit #1: Budgeting
Just about every millionaire leverages the benefit of budgeting but how they formulate their budgets can vary.

I start every month with my expected income and my savings target and allocate the difference between my expenses tracking each expenditure in the notes on my smartphone.

Poor people on the other hand are quick to blame everyone but themselves when they run into financial struggles. They say that the government is taxing them too much, that their boss isn’t promoting them or that the economy is holding them back. In essence, they are reacting to the world around them instead of taking charge. For myself…
