Stay Lucky

Believe it or not, feng shui practitioners reveal that this year will be beneficial to career and financial investments, making it a wise time to take advantage of income-generating opportunities. The Year of the Red Fire Rooster is also foreseen to be an auspicious year for business transactions. So it’s wise to prepare for the upcoming Chinese New Year by taking tried-and-tested steps, like avoiding buying or using a second-hand wallet, for its previous owner’s energy remains in the wallet and may affect your own energy. When you use your new wallet like this one from McJim Classic Leather, keep it filled with money, to symbolize abundance and attract wealth and prosperity.
