What Does Rich Mean to You?

Finance expert and author of the best-selling book, I Will Teach You To Be Rich, Ramit Sethi, has loads of savvy tips to make you money-wise and wealthy. His thickest piece of advice? While it's hard to narrow it down to just one of his strategies, the best get-rich tip may just be to do a little self-evaluation and find out how you think of wealth.

We all have our expensive must-haves and hang-ups — I will never surrender my addiction to designer jeans or manicures, for one. I have friends who might be convinced to curb their retail spending in favor of travel, or a great apartment, but when it comes down to it, I know very few people my age that can have it all. Instead of griping about what you can't have — Ramit suggests we prioritize to buy or do the things we see as having real worth to us.

Making concessions, like finding a roommate to cut your rent in half, can make it possible for you to splurge on other things. The key takeaway is that you don't have to wait years to live a wealthy lifestyle, but you must prioritize how to spend — and that means that defining how you see wealth is step one. So tell me, what does being rich mean to you?
