One of the most challenging aspects to change your finances is getting started.

  • You may have an idea.
  • You may want to read more.
  • You may talk and talk about doing this and that, but then never follow through.

However, don't procrastinate - get going today and learn as you go. Sit down and create a spreadsheet of all your bills, income, and any extra spending. Once you've listed everything, open your investment account and start saving.

From the day you start saving, put a reminder on your calendar once a week to work for one hour on your finances in some way. It could include reading, balancing the accounts, optimizing cash flow, researching funds, etc.

There is no right number of times to check on your account. If you feel the urge to make decisions based on the news or market changes, limit how many times you look at your accounts. With experience, you will gain more control.

It takes time to learn and improve your financial IQ, but it is certainly not that hard.

  • Once you have a saving plan in place and your accounts open, you don't want to jump into investing as you risk making beginner mistakes.
  • Teach yourself the fundamentals and visit websites that provide basic information about platforms, financial terms, types of funds, etc. This includes places like Investopedia.
  • Ask any friends or family who may already know a lot about finances, but be careful since they may have outdated ideas.
  • Avoid jumping in random funds because you read that in an article.

Making the time to read will get you the right kind of results.
