Unless you consider Making Ends Meet
an actual skill, then I am not the one to give financial advice.
But let’s admit it. You are FREE to dream, but when you wake up, you'll soon realize that...things, and dreams, cost money. Although everyone’s goal in life is not to become a millionaire, it is very important that you know what your financial goals are. A great place to start is with your current income, current obligations, and future goals. A simple measure could be to: Earn. Budget. Give. Save. Spend. How much do you want to earn? What are your current financial obligations? How much do you need to save? How much would you like to give to charity? How much would you like to spend on yourself?

One of my favorite quotes by Charlie “Tremendous Jones is: You are the same today that you are going to be five years from now except for two things: the people with whom you associate and the books you read.
Each month, I gather or purchase 3-5 books related to my monthly goals. I keep them in a stack on my bookshelf. When I run errands, I grab one or two from the stack and take them with me to read on the go. Here's what my March Book Stack looks like.
- Win $50 Million Dollars from the California Lottery (Don’t Judge Me, I’m giving 15% to my church!)
- Increase my yearly income by (xxx,xxx) by picking up extra freelance work and/or creating new products
- Tithe more than 15% of all of my income to my church
- Create a solid savings plan
- Pay off all past debt and become debt free
- File my taxes on time
