Financial information is the key to change.
Unfortunately, for most of us, basic financial information is not taught in schools. We live in a country that continues to pass out diplomas to people who lack healthy financial skills, creating a society not prepared to handle the financial ups and downs of everyday living. The road to financial freedom is paved with information; join me on my journey.

Your Actions Will Follow - What Your Mind Believes
The first step on the road to financial independence is the most difficult step of the journey. The first step is changing your thinking. Changing a conditioned mind is more than just changing your thinking, it is also changing your behavior. It is easy to sit back, complain, and do nothing to improve your life. Change takes work, sacrifice, and rethinking old ways. Change means taking charge of your life and developing better habits.
If you believe your only option is to struggle financially then you will continue to struggle. If you believe that living paycheck to paycheck is your destiny then you will continue to depend on your next check. If you believe, however, that change is possible then your life will change. Changing your life is only possible if you want to change and are willing to do the work. "Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek."
