Premature celebration

Written and accurate as at: 10 August 2010

This cyclist could do with a reminder that it is safer to ride your bike by holding onto the handlebars.

Yes, most of us have rode our bikes “no handed”, but doing so in a race seems like a risk a little greater than what is needed.

What does this have to do with money and personal finance?

Very few people have had the opportunity to find out what they know and don’t know without putting their hard earned dollars at risk. But this has changed. You can use the knowledge centre’s learning modules and quizzes to find out what you know and don’t know, and at the same time, increase your knowledge.

The benefit of this is at least you will be more like the cyclist who ends up winning the race, and not the one who will never forget the day he took his hands off the wheel.

See the kid who was bitten by over confidence.
