As the saying goes, “Money is a good servant, but can become a bad master if not kept in good control”.
What I will be talking about in this blog may not be directed to the few people who are conscious about money and know-how to master it. To the majority who are looking for the crack code to master money, you may want to treat this content very important; one you don’t want to miss out on.
Over the years, money has evolved so much.
History of money.
A few decades back in time, some edible foods, namely: Cocoa beans, salt, and cheese were very valuable. These items were used as money back then.
In Eastern part of Africa, salt was the medium of exchange for goods and services, cocoa beans was cherished more in Aztecs and cheese was kept in Italian banks as a money. Although gold was also valuable in some other places, but, salt, cocoa beans and cheese were very popular at the time.
In the 21st Century, the medium of exchange (money) that we are familiar with exist as, notes, coins, digits, and bitcoin.

Money is a legal tool (currency), considered as a fraction of wealth, which helps us to get things done with ease.
