  1. Do not gamble. Rose points out there are tons of other ways to use your , including investing it rather than trusting pure luck. 
  2. Do not have too much of it sitting in cash. It is wise to have a little cash for savings and emergency, but too much cash sitting outside of a proper account is simply being complacent with your money. 
  3. Do not buy things you don't understand. Even if something is all the rage, you don't need to invest in it if you simply don't know the intricacies of it. As an example, Rose points out how many eager people clamored to invest in cryptocurrency when it first came out.
