17. Keep Your Money Secret
It’s easy to tell the world that you just came into a lot of money. In fact, there are many people that will spread the word you became rich for you. However, it’s always up to you what you post on social media or share with others. Your number one priority needs to be not to say a word. In reality, you should never discuss your finances with someone else.
Another reality is, immature people like to brag about how much money they have, and it can make many people feel angry or cynical. You are no longer struggling to put food on your table, so your priority needs to be protecting your wealth. This doesn’t mean you’ll never tell them you are rich, and you just need to focus on your plan, investing, and paying your taxes before you share this news.
