After I started going to college, I could tell that my monthly scholarship living stipend would run out fast if I didn't learn how to budget my money. Instead of willy-nilly spending my money, I started meeting with a financial planner to figure out all the details. It was incredible to see what a big difference a little plan made. He helped me to save a little bit of money every month, figure out how to invest the extra money I had, and avoid buying things that I didn't really need. This blog is all about making better financial decisions and avoiding problems.
