Let’s face it, managing money can be tough, especially in today’s consumer-driven, Keeping Up with the Kardashians society.
Unless your parents taught you about money when you were growing up, you were likely on your own to try to figure things out and make heads or tails of it all.
Sadly, our education system does not put an emphasis on personal finance education, although doing so would equip graduates to go out into the world with the knowledge necessary to succeed with money.
Left to our own devices, it can be easy to fall into the common money traps. Before you know it, a little time passes and you are knee-deep (or higher) in debt or in some other less-than-favorable money situation.
But, there is hope.
No matter where you are on your financial journey, you can take action now and develop habits that will enable you to succeed at managing your money.
To become successful managing our finances and ultimately, growing our net worth, we must develop positive and productive financial habits, or dollar habits, if you will.
We are the sum of our habits and if you habitually work to grow your income, save and invest, eventually, you will achieve your financial goals.
Dollar Habits is an online community of regular, everyday people who want to stop sucking at money and achieve financial success, be it financial independence, early retirement, a debt-free life, or some other personal definition of success.
Perhaps you are just starting out on your path to personal finance mastery, or maybe you are already a veteran when it comes to all things money; either way, we hope you will find value here.
