As the new year approaches and the holiday season quickly passes, there’s no better time to think about your personal financial strategy.
So there’s this awesome job, the sort of job you’d just die to land (and tell your friends about)! But the awesome job isn’t nearly like the job you have now. So how do you make it from current job to awesome job?
In our podcast series, we’re hoping to provide insights and answers to that very question. We talk to young people who have amazing jobs or are doing something really cool and interesting and ask them how they did it. So listen along for good information and some inspiration, too.
Here’s a fact: Having the best job in the world won’t matter if your personal finances are a mess. And there’s perhaps no better time to do some financial planning than just before the start of a new year.
So I sat down with Andrew Schrage, the editor and co-owner of Money Crashers, a website that aims to help people make sound financial decisions. The site offers sensible, solid financial advice for a variety of situations. Just take a look at these recent articles:
- 14 Ways to Save Money on Hotels for Your Next Vacation
- When is the Best Time of Year to Buy Large Appliances?
- What is Layaway — Pros & Cons and Stores That Offer Layaway Plans
In the interview, Andrew talks about his own approach to finances, the best advice out there, and financial strategies you should avoid. We talked a lot about saving, which we all know is important, but we really got into the details about developing the discipline to ensure you’re saving every day.
So listen to the interview and tell us in the comments, what are some of your favorite personal finance tips?
