As far as saving goes, Richardson has a rule she follows that some of us may want to adapt into our lives. She believes in the 10/10/30/50 rule.

Richardson said, “10% you tithe, 10% you save, 30% is cash in your pocket and 50% stays in your account for bills.”

She mentioned that whether she tithed or not she was still broke and that 10% for savings is because wealthy people get wealthier by investing. Richardson also stated that the 30% of cash we use includes groceries, dinner out, getting your hair done and things like that.

She said, “Stop going in the grocery store for only toothpaste and walking out with $175 of groceries.”

Many of us are guilty of doing that because we think we need to buy multiple things while we’re in there. Furthermore, 50% of your check should stay in your account for bills that need to get paid.

She also gave tips on how to make your home a business as well as how hiring your children can be a tax write-off.
