Learn the basics

Train your mindset

Not everyone comes from homes where talks about money were a focus. Some consider it too personal or even taboo. But to build your financial skills, you need to be ready to have uncomfortable conversations with yourself.

Pay yourself first

A few dollars here and there may not sound like a lot but saving $50 dollars a week will land you $2600 dollars in your savings account by the end of the year. Saving money wherever you can is key to your financial wellbeing.

Be realistic about your plan

Budgeting doesn't have to mean you can't do anything fun. Even the wealthiest people in the world have a budget and they stick to it. Give your budget a fun name like "Jane's more money less problems plan." You should make sure to include room in your budget to treat yourself to pizza or a night out...if there is no room for things you enjoy, the budget won't stick with you.
