10 SIGNS YOU ARE GOOD WITH MONEY

1. Good knowledge of money
Reading books and articles, or listening to a podcast to improve your handling of money, is a proactive approach that will give you an advantage over many of us. Multiple analyses of rich people have found that they value continued self-education and reading to learn more about the world. If it works for them, it could work for you.

2. You know how much you spend

You can afford your basic needs, housing utilities, food, transportation, health and any other important, recurring needs every month without going into debt, you're good with money. Once you have your immediate needs covered, you can turn your mind and your money to growing your wealth

4. Having emergency funds 
If you can afford not only your monthly necessities, but also have an emergency fund  without incurring any kind of debt you are good with money.

If you can cover your necessities, afford things you want but don't need, and stash away funds for the future you are good with money.

7. You can afford some of your wants
If you can afford not only your monthly necessities, but also have the cash on hand to buy some of the things you want (think concert tickets, a trip to the beach, a bagel on the way to work when you have perfectly good meal at home) without incurring any kind of debt, you're ahead of the game.

8. You invest
Investing your money has the potential for growth far beyond what you would see in a traditional savings account.

10. You are not in debt
Debts are in two categories, there's the good debt and there's the bad debt.
Good debts come from investing in your future, such as buying a house, taking a loan to start or advance a business, taking out loans for a college degree. While Bad debts, are debts taking for the wrong reasons which comes with typically high interest rates and don't help you build wealth or assets.
