Financial Advice Given by the Advice Givers

 Will Rogers once said, “Too many people spend money they haven’t earned to buy things they don’t need to impress people they don’t like.”

♣ A college professor imparted this advice to Paul Tran, founder of Point B Capital Corp., in Orange County, Calif. “It makes me think twice about buying things I’m a little too excited about,” he says.

♣ “A piece of advice that I learned from my father and that I constantly try to impart to my children is, ‘There are two ways to get a lot of money. Earn a lot, or don’t spend all that you earn,’ ” says Bill Hettinger, principal with the Institute for Finance and Entrepreneurship, Windham, Conn., and author of Finance Without Fear.

♣ “My grandfather coined the expression, ‘There are times when a buck is like a hundred and a hundred is like a buck. Keep your head on straight each time,’ ” says Brent Mekosh, branch principal with Mekosh Financial Services in Scottsdale, Ariz. “The lesson? Live as if you will die tomorrow, but plan as if you will live forever.”
