Financial independence is a great goal, and with the right tools, you can totally get there!
Learning to manage your money isn’t something you should put off until you’re older, until you get a “real job”, or until you feel like a grown-up…
You can start your smart money habits right where you are, using exactly what you have. In fact, high school is the perfect time to start learning healthy financial habits. The decisions you make now concerning your finances have a direct impact on your financial future.
Achieving financial independence after high school is a process. It doesn’t happen overnight. It starts with setting a few measurable goals based on where you are and where you would like to be a year from now…and five years from now.
- Do you want to be a homeowner?
- Do you need a new car?
- Do you want to be completely debt-free?
Once you know what you are working toward, you can make informed decisions about how you will reach that goal.
Setting a budget doesn’t have to be awful. It’s a chance for you to see exactly where your money is going. There are plenty of apps for budget tracking. Mint is a great one.
