When you’re earning millions of dollars for just breathing air, it’s oh-so-tempting for Hollywood stars to just throw away their money with not a care in the world. After all, they think they can always earn it back in the next breath—or so many of them mistakenly assume.
Celebrities are just some of the countless people in this world who don’t know how to manage their money well. Yes, there are those admirable ones who live below or within their means and make the conscious decision to be prudent with their fortune.
But there are many who are just downright ridiculous when it comes to spending. And some of their purchases are so ludicrous, it should be a crime, considering the millions of people in the world who live below the poverty line! But many celebs have no qualms about flaunting their wealth. Predictably, some have had to file bankruptcy as a result of their lavish lifestyle.
We should learn from these people and make sure we don’t fall into the same spending pattern as them. Because aside from the number of people who can’t even put food on the table, we have to realize that surprise, surprise, money doesn’t grow on trees.
