Usually, this reader has come across a google search and finds an article where I talk about how to make the most of the money you can make from an investment or how to reduce your expenses.
Normally, they check the contact page, realize that they can effectively contact me and take out their anti-capitalist rage in the form of email. For example:
Worst of all is the time and dedication you have lost telling people how to make more money instead of making something more worthwhile. The world already has enough greed without people like you who only teaches to be greedy. Why don’t you find something worth doing with your time instead of helping greedy people get rich?
Is Money Good or Is It Bad Money?
What these messages have in common is the general belief that money is bad. And, of course, that people who believe that money is good (the initial conclusion of most readers) are greedy and ambitious people for having more and more money.
The real key is that money is neutral l. It is neither good nor bad. Instead, money is a tool, like a hammer. It can be used to build something amazing or you can break a finger if you use it improperly.
Does that make the hammer good or bad by itself? What happens to a box full of tools? Are they good or bad? The truth is that they are neither good nor bad. It all depends on how each person uses that particular tool.
Let’s continue with this metaphor
If money is a tool, then Good Finance is a kind of instruction manual on how to use this tool safely. A series of suggestions on how to use these tools improve both yourself and the world.
Good Finance is the equivalent of an episode of Bricomanía, where people are learning to use the tools as they go along and hopefully they are building and manufacturing something that has a lot of meaning to them.
Money is not good or bad, it is people who make it good or bad. The whole purpose of ProAhorro is to teach people how to use their money in the most effective way (with articles on how to end debts) and to guide people to make good decisions with their money (with articles on investments).
For me it is a good goal
But I also understand how people can use some of the information with negative effects (for example, becoming overly saving) but I am convinced that the benefits outweigh the possible inconveniences.
In the end, Good Finance is what readers make of it. I am inclined to believe that the average person tends to want to do good things with his money, only he learns new techniques with the best of intentions, to improve himself and his environment.
