Seriously. Your time has expired.

My 2021 goal is progress. Everyday my goal is do something that helps me change my life in the direction I am happy and proud of. I decided to up my game towards progress in June by setting a theme for learning every month. This month of August 2021 my goal is learn as much as I can about personal finances. And then publish one post every week about what I have learned.

I have one rule — it has to be free.

Why? Because of the wealth of knowledge in podcasts and on YouTube. I’m not (yet) looking for high level training with terminology that I don’t understand or is targeted toward a financial level I don’t have yet. I am looking for knowledge that can help me build stronger finances and wealth.

Money is a resource. Don’t be afraid of it. — Ryan Serhant on Lewis Howes School of Greatness.

There are two things I knew about money in university. One. I needed it. Two. I didn’t have it. Fast forward to July of 2021 — nearly five years out of university for me — that is what I still only really know about money. Almost everything I buy I have to justify that I need it. I am no longer a student, yet I am still living like I am.
