“Most of us bury our heads, and we don’t want to deal with our credit score. It can be very scary … but I want to tell people they can take control of it.”
– Hill Harper, author of The Wealth Cure
Budgeting is creating a financial plan to spend, save and invest your money. It is the first step on the path to financial success. It starts with tracking your income and understanding your expenses, then setting financial goals and planning how to spend your money within your means.
Saving gives you the freedom to live the life you want. It begins with setting financial goals and creating a plan to put a little away at a time. It also involves establishing an emergency savings fund to help you navigate unexpected expenses. With discipline and sacrifice, you can build your savings to realize your goals.
An essential part of financial health is creating an emergency savings fund to tap for unanticipated expenses, like medical bills or job loss. Learn how to save for emergencies.
