Taking control of your money is a significant aspect of managing your life. In some ways financial control is aspirational because we lazily dream of one day getting this pesky bit of trouble tamed. But taking control doesn’t mean that your financial worries are over. The task and regular maintenance of your finances is just part of a balanced life. Or put another way, it means that you face the beast and become the boss. That you can do, bubbie.
Ready to be the boss of you and your money? Then let’s get started!

Additionally the study found that ‘62% of people with high esteem have set themselves long-term financial goals.’ Self esteem isn’t always a feeling thing. Put your needs in their proper place; that is, make them count at least as much as everyone else’s needs count, got it?
