Move Forward Well

The more we know about money, the better decisions we can make to move forward.

Your Money Today = Your Future

If most of your money choices are good today, then you’re more likely to make more good money choices in the future (and you’ll have more money).

How Learning Helps You Move Forward With Your Money

  • You find new ways to make better choices.
  • You learn from your mistakes.
  • When tough money situations arise, you ask for help and learn more.

Being Financially Responsible

  • Have more money coming in than going out (or at least have it even).
  • Know the difference between a want and a need, such as needing clothing but wanting a designer label.
  • Budget your money.
  • Prepare for the unexpected.
  • Work through difficult money situations and mistakes.

Why Budgets Promote Financial Responsibility

  • A budget puts you in charge of your money.
  • When you budget, you keep track of how your money is coming in and going out.
  • A budget can help you set and achieve money goals.

Ask Yourself
