5 things you MUST know about him

Nairobi - There are things you just MUST know about him. Which are they?
How much debt have you got holed up?
Loving your partner and being in sync is an amazing thing.
Waking up to them and thinking of the wonderful life that you are building
together; but hold up, you are not going to be building anything if you have no
clue at all on their debt. It is better they present it to the table and you
all deal with it together first and get it out of the way. Rather than closing
your eyes and saying you are doing things for love. Love does not pay your
salary, your mortgage, and it will not reinstate your balance if you make blind
decisions. There is nothing wrong with debt, as long as I am aware of it so
that I can know how to handle it.
What do things do
own that is actually being paid off as a loan?
I said things because property such as land and real estate
is good but there are people who like to take out loans so that they can spend
on things. Things that depreciate in value but leave you with a negative bank
balance; or a fanatic that sees themselves as a collector of ‘artifacts’ that
do not have any real value attached to them.
How many credit cards do you have?
Credit cards are not bad; they are nice accessories to have
in your purse. Thing is I know myself too well, and I do know for a fact that
if I can I will avoid ever having one because I can be a spendthrift if the
occasion presents itself. These types of occasions present themselves a lot of
times though. Then I get a partner who is also a spendthrift and they have more
than two credit cards, Houston we have a problem! At the end of the month it
will be like a surprise birthday party when the bill comes; worse still when
the billing is not done monthly but in quarterly and so on. We will die of heart
How many people are you supporting?
It is an honest question to ask because ‘our’ money will now
be supporting them as well. My money will now be going into their ‘support’.
This is when you find out about hidden wives and children or just a good cause
that you might like to be a part of.
Your investment priorities
There are those ones who like schemes, the ones who like
inventions, the ones who like stock and the ones who like new business
ventures. Which lot do you fall into so that I know are you high risk or low
risk as a partner. Do I need to watch my back?
