3 Tips for becoming a master of Personal Finance:

Budget

Yes, I probably say this too much. But budgeting makes such a difference in your ability to save, invest, and reach your financial goals.

Use Debt Wisely

Debt can be good, but it can be bad as I described in “Do I have the wrong type of loan?“. So make sure you use good debt and limit bad debt.

Don’t do it alone

As much as an advisor or financial planner may seem like something for the wealthy, it is not! Financial Planners can help you identify your goals and help you reach them Wit their expertise, they can advise you on debt, investments and more.
