“Getting ahead can take time. It takes time to work through all the steps and get you achieving the results you are capable of. But doing nothing about your financial future is not an option.”
“If you have no money left at the end of each pay cycle, ask yourself these three questions: Why? Where is my money going? What can I do to change things and start saving?”
