Welcome to Budget For Wealth! Thank you for stopping by to read the very first post on my personal finance blog.
The purpose of this website is to publish information on a consistent basis so that you, the reader, can gain insight into the world of financial management. I want to make it easier to understand what is available to you in order to make your life better, or simply plan for the future.
Unless you took a lot of courses geared towards business, accounting, and finance; or had a parent who taught you some basic finance skills, it can be easy to understand why most Americans are not well equipped to manage money. It’s also hard to keep up with ever changing laws and the lingo that you see and hear in the media. Adding in the fact that the majority of us can no longer can depend on a defined pension (whether you currently are participating in one or not); what exactly do we do with our money so we can continue to put food on the table when we retire?
That’s where I come in. My mission is to prove that even you can “get rich on a budget!” It doesn’t matter how much money you make or how much debt you already have. As long as you can learn to change the way you think and act with money, together we can create wealth and be happy with living within our means.
Each week I will publish articles that will help you reflect on your financial behavior and teach you about the products and services that are available to build your wealth. I will do my best to help you understand every aspect of your financial lives. My hope is that if you stick with me, over time you will be armed with the knowledge you need to plan for the future and retirement you have in mind.
