Have you ever thought about life lessons about money?

Honestly, most of us haven’t because we go through our day-to-day lives without taking the time to reflect or even journal about our experiences.

This past week, I had the chance to visit my kid’s elementary school during lunchtime. It has been a LONG time since I have stuck foot in a lunchroom. Wow – that room is loud! Really quickly I realized some lunchtime lessons we tend to forget in life.

These are the best money lessons you need to know.

The teachers were present to keep the lunchroom in order. My hats are off to them! They are amazing ladies with gifted talent (and personally, I am thankful for each of them). They kept control of the chaos to make sure the students did what they needed to do – eat lunch while still enjoying their friends.

After observing the students and the teachers, I realized habits start at a young age. If those habits, don’t change. Then, the cycle repeats. As kids, we learn behaviors whether good or bad (and most of them stick with you through your adult life).

It is a matter of choosing which path we want to live.

So, you are probably wondering what does an elementary lunchroom and money have in common??? I’m going to unpack four lessons learned in grade school that people struggle with in their money life.

These are the financial lessons you must embrace to enjoy a life of financial independence.

How Can I Learn About Money?

Just like reading, writing, and arithmetic, financial literacy is important. It is a building block to becoming financially secure. More specifically, being smart with money opens up doors of opportunities.

You are in the exact place you can learn about money.

Here at Money Bliss, we believe people want to learn to alter money management, so they can enjoy life and money.

Unfortunately, financial lessons are not taught in school or at the home.

So, that means as a college student or young adult, you must become self-taught. There are lots of various opinions and advice that you can get. Some of the best money books are highly rated because they have solid money management tips that are life-changing.

Stick around our Money Bliss tribe! I guarantee you will find insightful tips as many others have that will change your personal finances.

Money Lessons You Need in Life

The important lessons in life are simple.

They are basic practices in life. These are not specific tactics to help you get out of debt, budget better, or save more money.

Your mindset will determine success or failure – just by how you are thinking.

Research has proven that your mindset will determine your outcome.

These are the daily money lessons you need to remember that will help you reach financial freedom.

These life lessons about money are you already know, but you may need to practice them more often.

1. Stay Disciplined

The first lesson is about discipline. Going back to the lunchroom, the kids know the expected behavior. It takes discipline to sit down and actually eat lunch vs. throwing food and chatting with friends then no food is eaten. As adults, we know how much income we make and how much we can spend. With money, it takes discipline to stay within a budget or as I prefer to call it – Cents Plan.

In today’s society, there are many ways to fast cash whether by using credit cards, payday loans, or even a home equity loan. It is super easy to rack up thousands and thousands of dollars in debt in a short amount of time. While it may be fun spending all of that fast cash, it comes at a steep price called interest.

Discipline is living within your means.

It takes discipline to say, “No, you can’t afford this.”

Even better is learning how to live below your means and save more money each month.

2. Avoid Pushing the Boundaries

Oh, children are the best at the second lesson! How far can I push the boundary? At what point, do I actually cross the line? During my time in the lunchroom, I observed students after students trying to push the boundaries. Remember, they have wonderful teachers who have taught them the expected behavior.

However, it is natural behavior as humans to test the boundaries.

With money, pushing the boundaries typically starts out small. $20 over on groceries this month. $100 on eating out because we had to celebrate a birthday. Picking up that one item just because it is on sale even when there isn’t enough money to cover the basic expenses. Then, after time, it starts a snowball effect.

It just keeps rolling and rolling, getting bigger and bigger until overspending is out of control and the person is now smothered in debt.

With money, is pushing the boundaries truly worth it? Why should you test your own boundaries when money is at stake? The answer is no. Stop pushing the boundaries.

In the end, you are only hurting yourself financially by testing the limits and causing undue stress.

3. Keep the Focus

Um, hello? Are you listening? Still, reading? Good! Yes, focus is the third lesson.

The lunchroom serves one primary purpose – fill up the belly with food before the next class comes in. However, my observations proved that was the last priority on any of those kids’ agendas. Thankfully, the wonderful teachers were present to provide guidance and focus them back on the task on hand. Did it take one reminder? Um, no. Many reminders to stay focused on their primary purpose.

In our society, there are MORE distractions than ever before. Plus the distractions will keep growing exponentially as technology advances and history has proven. So, what does that mean for you and your money?

Develop a plan and stay focused. Don’t stray. Don’t let others change your plan. Focus.

When we paid off our student loans, we were focused on ONE thing. Pay off our loans as soon as possible. Thus, freeing up cash flow in our Cents Plan. We didn’t stray. No changing our minds when things got tough. We stay focused on our vision – PAY OFF OUR STUDENT LOANS.

Staying focused means creating an overall money vision and making money goals.

Every single day, you are focused on making decisions that will make sure reaching your money goals is attainable.

4. Accountability

Teachers through school help keep kids accountable. They were present in the lunchroom making sure chaos didn’t break out. These teachers provide a firm guiding hand with a huge dose of caring love.

Wouldn’t it be great to have an accountability standard for money? Unfortunately, we don’t have many great examples around us. The U.S. Government is trillions of dollars in debt. Most Americans carry debt on their shoulders while living paycheck to paycheck.

We have never been taught to be accountable with money.

The first step to being accountable with money is an accountability partner – either your spouse, friend, or coach. Someone who will keep your best interests in mind.

The second step is to have benchmarks to hold yourself accountable to. Understand how our tagline “Where Cents Parallel Vision” means to you and how to apply it to your life. Make sure to set long-term visions with attainable short-term financial goals. Also, journaling your journey is a great way to stay focused and track progress!

If you are struggling to find accountability, make sure to join the Money Bliss Tribe!

What’s the best lesson you’ve learned about money?

Personally, for me, it is living with millionaire habits and possessing their mindset. This all happened well before becoming a millionaire and deeply in debt.

It started by believing that I could be successful with money.

These powerful money lessons helped shaped my perspective, and ultimately, the desire to change money statistics with this blog and online business.

If you are stick in the negative mindset of always being poor or broke, that is where you will stay (unless you decide to take control of your mind). Living paycheck to paycheck is an unfortunate place to be.

If you believe that you can become a millionaire, then that is the best lesson you will learn about money, too.

Every money decision is a building block towards financial freedom. There isn’t one thing that will take you from negative net worth to over $1,000,000.

It is a cumulative effort of many daily resolutions that will change your personal finances.

You Need these Important Lessons about money

All of these money lessons we learned early in life, but still need reminders on a constant basis.

In all honesty, they will help every facet of your life. Build the life of your dreams and find money success.

Don’t forget these personal finance lessons:

  • Stay disciplined
  • Stop pushing the boundaries
  • Focus on money goals
  • Keep accountable
  • Think like a millionaire

In order to succeed with money and become financially free is to put into practice the lessons taught in school. We don’t have teachers watching over our every move to guide us.

We need to remember why it is so important to stay disciplined, stop pushing the boundaries, stay focused on our plan, and find accountability.

One of the benefits of the Money Bliss Steps to Financial Freedom is it provides a guide with all of these money lessons on how to succeed the fastest.

The steps are to be done in order, therefore, stay focused on the current step and not be distracted. Ten steps to walk through your life’s journey. They won’t happen overnight.

Just like in school… you took one grade at a time, learn what in needed to advance to the next grade.

Take these important lessons about money and willingly use them in every aspect of your life. You will be overcome with how much you are capable of accomplishing!

The Money Bliss Steps are developed to build upon one another and lay the foundation for financial freedom.

Learn how to manage your money, your way. Not have your money manage you. 

Side note on teachers and mentors… I am thankful to all of the teachers who dedicate their lives to enriching students’ lives. Each and every one of you makes this world a better place! Thank you.

Placing a smaller rug over a large neutral one is an excellent solution when you have a rug you love that’s too small. The layer acts like a border to extend the rug, says rug expert Jess Evans. (Courtesy of Annie Selke)

My friend, Susan, and I disagree on just about everything except home design — until now. Yes, I understand that an 8- by10-foot area rug would have worked better size-wise in my 10 by 13 living room. But I already had the 5 by 8 rug. I loved the pattern and colors, navy and burnt orange, and had decorated around it.

She persists. If I insist on keeping the small rug (yes), I should get a larger solid rug to layer underneath it, she said, and extend it under the furniture to pull the room together.

So when the rug arrives, I spread out the large, navy rug, lay the smaller one over it, replace the furniture, and text Susan a picture. “Happy now?” I asked.

“Yes, but I think the deep orange would have been better.”

Good thing she lives six states away because I might have strangled her.

So I text the same photo to Christopher, a designer friend I often consult with. Unlike Susan, he does not have a dog in this fight. His reply: “That blue rug just makes everything in the room look cheap. Maybe try a burnt orange one?” He does not know what a loaded topic this was.

Fine. I order a solid, burnt orange wool rug online. I roll up the blue rug and drag it out of the living room like a dead sea mammal. I unfurl the orange rug, which I am determined to like.

I stand back and squint. The orange is pretty bright. Plus, now the smaller rug keeps bunching up and rumpling no matter how I try to smooth it. I text photos to Susan and Christopher.

“Way too bright,” Susan said. “It needs to be a deeper color.”

“I am not doing this again,” I text back. “Your choice is either with the orange rug or without.”

“I cannot in good conscience choose between two bad options,” she writes.

Christopher is more tactful. “Try putting the orange rug in your bedroom. Better to have no rug under the smaller rug than one that detracts.”

In search of closure, I call Jess Evans, vice president of design for Annie Selke, a Massachusetts-based rug company, and ask if I can interview her for a column about rug sizes. Little does she know what she is getting into. I send her a picture of the living room.

“When you have a small rug in a room with no surrounding furniture on it, it can showcase that the rug is too small for the space,” she said. “While I recommend getting a rug that’s the right size from the start, I also love the look of layered rugs, and so do many top designers.” (I am not telling Susan.)

“But won’t putting a small rug over a larger one just emphasize the fact that the top rug is too small?”

“Not at all,” she said. “Layering rugs is an excellent solution when you have a rug you love that’s too small. The layer acts like a border to extend the rug, and the combination is in no way inferior to having one rug.”

Since my first two layering attempts flopped, I ask Evans for suggestions on how to get the right base and for solutions to other rug-size problems. Her advice:

Go lean: To prevent layered rugs from bunching, look for a thin base layer with a pile height of ¼-inch or less, she said. You also want a flat texture. Thinner sturdy rugs can be made of jute, sisal, wool or polypropylene.

Avoid patterns: Choose a base layer with little to no pattern in a neutral color that works with your flooring. The base should act as a frame and not compete with the feature rug.

Add legs: Ideally you want a rug big enough to allow at least the front feet of the room’s main furniture to sit on it. If you put only the front legs on, the rug should extend several inches underneath. If you can’t get all the front legs on, it’s better to have no legs on than some legs on and some off.

But don’t go too big: Leave at least eight inches between your rug and your wall. Eighteen inches is ideal, and fewer than six inches is too tight. “A rug that’s too big looks like wall-to-wall carpet and defeats the purpose of an area rug,” Evans said.

One of the most influential names in real estate is once again showing us how it’s done.

Influencer, motivational speaker, bestselling author, and prominent real estate investor Grant Cardone is selling his beachfront mansion in Florida for $42 million.

But throwing cash at the seasoned investor won’t do the trick.

He wants 646 Bitcoin for his one-of-a-kind house in Golden Beach, Florida — which was formerly home to fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger, who sold it to the billionaire businessman back in 2021 for $24 million.

Cardone, who founded Cardone Capital, a real estate investment firm that manages a portfolio of billions in assets, listed his Florida residence on PropyKeys, a leading blockchain-based platform for real estate transactions.

The offering: what 646 Bitcoin will buy you in Florida

The Golden Beach residence sits on a 0.63-acre oceanfront lot, with its own private beachfront access and 100 feet of pristine shoreline.

Built in 2007, it features over 13,000 square feet of luxury interior space, with 7 bedrooms and 8 baths. Also on the grounds of the property, there is a heated saltwater pool and a private beach cabana.

The house has sophisticated interiors by Martyn Lawrence Bullard

Celebrity interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard — who was also one of the leading stars of Bravo’s short-lived Million Dollar Decorators — designed the interiors of the $42 million abode.

Bullard, who also decked out the homes of other celebs like Eva Mendes, Ellen Pompeo Kylie Jenner, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, Cher, Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, to name just a few, is known for his broad-ranging, sophisticated yet eclectic style.

The interiors were designed to accommodate an extensive art collection

Bullard is the one who fitted the now-famous residence with vibrant spaces filled with patterned ceilings, walls and floors, interesting sculptures, and bright carpeting — meant to highlight the previous owners’ extensive pop art collection.

Cardone bought the house from fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and his wife, Dee Ocleppo, who had been trying for years to land a buyer for their Golden Beach house. They had listed it for as much as $27.5 million, before the 10x Rule author took it off their hands in 2021 for $24 million.

Bold interiors, artsy decor & sophisticated touches hint at its famous past owner

While under Hilfiger’s ownership, the Florida mansion graced the cover of many interior design magazines, and was heavily featured in the media — Architectural Digest included.

And it’s easy to see why. Even after the Cardones toned down the interiors slightly with modern upgrades, the house still features dramatic interior touches that include a black marble staircase, chevron-patterned marble floors in the dining room, and reflective ceilings, to name just a few.

It underwent extensive renovations in the past three years

Grant and Elena Cardone invested heavily in updating the 2007-built mansion.

Since they purchased it back in 2021, the couple has meticulously renovated the property, replacing some of the finishes (like the patterned walls and floors) designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard added for the Hilfigers, and replacing them with designer choices that can appeal to a wider demographic of potential buyers.

The outdoor areas have been spruced up the most

Most recently, in 2023, the two have been hard at work updating the property’s outdoor areas, including renovating the pool deck and bar/grill area and upgrading the landscaping. They’ve also added new ocean-side windows and doors.

There’s also a charming beach cabana

Impressive as the main house might be, it’s not the only structure on the property. There’s also a charming beach cabana that neighbors the heated saltwater pool.

Cardone is embracing blockchain technology

“We are all in on blockchain revolutionizing real estate! We are leveraging top-tier technology to make transactions seamless and unstoppable,” Cardone said in a statement, providing insight into his decision to list the property via blockchain, as opposed to more traditional platforms.

“This is the future of real estate, and we’re leading the charge,” the Sell or Be Sold author stated.

The platform he chose to list his property

As one of the most prominent figures in real estate, Cardone could have partnered with practically any platform. But he went with Propy, a Silicon Valley-based proptech company that’s happy to partner with the seasoned investor:

“It is a privilege to us to be the platform of choice for high-end property sales that we offer to our community of HNWI investors and crypto buyers,” said Natalia Karayaneva, CEO of Propy. “The inclusion of Cardone’s listing in BTC and USD on Propy, minted with our latest privacy deed feature, highlights our leadership in the intersection of real estate and crypto.”

Also publicly listed with his wife as the listing agent

The Golden Beach house is also up on the MLS, with Zillow and other property websites showing the billionaire’s wife as the agent attached to the listing.

An eXp Realty agent, Elena Cardone got her real estate license just a few years ago, per her LinkedIn profile, but has already been making a splash on the Miami real estate scene. An older LinkedIn post shows that Elena and her team had over $840 million in sales volume in 2022 alone.

Rumor has it he’s also selling his Malibu Beach abode

Photo credit: Elad Elkoubi / Swift Pics Photography

Over on the other Coast, Cardone owns a $40 million “Castle on the Sand” in Malibu, California a 6-bedroom, 10-bathroom beachfront residence that might have a similar fate to his Florida abode.

The Undercover Billionaire star paid a whopping $40 million for the house back in 2022, which sits in the pricey Carbon Beach area of Malibu, also known as Billionaire’s Beach.

He reportedly wants $65M for that one — preferably in Bitcoin

Photo credit: Elad Elkoubi / Swift Pics Photography

Several news outlets, including the New York Post, have reported that Cardone has been quietly looking to offload his Carbon Beach house for an even more ambitious asking: $65 million, also accepting payments in Bitcoin.

That mansion isn’t being floated on the open market though, and is likely being offered as a pocket listing that only vetted buyers can access.

Who is Grant Cardone?

Photo credit: Elad Elkoubi / Swift Pics Photography

One of the biggest influencers, authors, and speakers in the real estate space, Grant Cardone has made a name for himself as a serial entrepreneur and financial guru. He’s the founder of Cardone Enterprises, Cardone Capital, Cardone Training Technologies, The 10X Movement, and The 10X Growth Conference — one of the world’s largest business & entrepreneur conferences.

He also famously authored several best-selling books, including The 10X Rule, Be Obsessed Or Be Average, Sell Or Be Sold, and Millionaire Booklet, as well as several bestselling business programs.
