I was sorting through some old magazines that had accumulated in a box in my basement. Naturally, I had to scan them for interesting stuff before I dropped them into the recycling bin. One of them had an article written by a financial expert (I'm using the term "expert" because it's in the article, not because I think anybody is an expert on anything.) named Robert Kiyosaki.

One of the questions posed to Mr. Kiyosaki in the article was how much money should a woman save for her nest egg?

Mr. K's answer:

"One of the things I learned was called the 10/10/10 rule. I had three piggy banks: one for savings, one for investing, and one for charity. I advise women to do this and set a goal that every day for a year, they're going to put 10 cents or more into each piggy bank. It's not the dollar amount that's important, it's the habit you create. "

Good advice, especially for kids and young adult women.

What's the next step?

Mr. K's answer:

"Learn to invest wisely. If you're just putting money into the bank, you're not learning anything. That's why I value education and experience more. When you're not financially smart, it takes a lot of money to feel secure, if ever. What makes me feel secure is that I don't care if markest go up or down, I know how to invest."

The article was in an old Woman's Day magazine from 2003.

That other party, they work for people who don't need help.
That's all there is to it."
