I found these tips quite compelling and thought I repost the three I liked the most. Follow the ensuing link below to get the full list
Sign #1: Fail to Negotiate Salary
If you’re someone who tends to accept the very first offer at every new job, research shows it’s like leaving a million bucks in lost earnings over a lifetime. Before accepting a deal, head to GetRaised.com to compare salaries in your field and zip code. Then ask for a bump before accepting the job — experts say it’s the best time to ask!
Sign #2: Savings Shortfall
If you had to come up with some quick cash to fix a leaky roof or cover a surprise medical expense, could you? The fact is half of Americans say they’d have a hard time shoring up $2,000 on short notice, according to the National Bureau of Economic Research. But without a savings cushion you’re a prime candidate for financial disaster.
Sign #3: Not Sharing Savings Goals
And finally, when trying to save money do you:
A) Tell many friends and family.
B) Confide in a couple people.
C) Keep it to myself.
