Getting Control of Your Finances
Taking control of your finances is one of the most important things you can do, but it is also one of the most daunting. There are so many moving parts - where do you start? Lao Tzu famously highlighted that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and your finances are no different.
For you, that first step is creating a budget. While you won't stick to your budget perfectly, the value of a budget is not in scrutinizing every single detail, but rather in simply being aware of where your money is going. The process of planning and then tracking your spending is eye-opening, and it is the beginning of taking charge of your finances.
