"The best thing my mum taught me was how to appreciate the value of money. Rather than dishing out money like a slot machine, my mother got me into doing chores at a very early age - things like laundry, vacuuming, gardening and even sewing. We received pocket money for 'work' to help my sister and I understand that money isn't free. It taught us a huge lesson and we both teach that to our children today :)"
