Empower Yourself to take control of your financial life! Learn the core aspects of financial management.
Money management is key to improving or maintaining your financial situation. Each of us has our own particular relationship to money. Some want as much of it as possible and devote significant time and energy to its pursuit. Others prefer to live simply on minimal resources. Perhaps most of us fall somewhere in the middle, wanting to live comfortably without sacrificing the quality or balance of our lives. No matter what you want your money to do for you, learning the basics of money management will help you make it happen.
Why Financial Management Is Important
Most people find dealing with personal finances a chore. Often they're not comfortable with math, don't feel they have enough time, or are even fearful of finding out that there's just not enough money in the bank to cover the bills.
Willful ignorance about finances, however, will get you nowhere -- whether you're flush with cash or not. Financial knowledge yields financial power.
Learning About Financial Management
To improve your personal financial management skills, you must learn what's involved. The different aspects to financial management include:
- banking and saving
- paying taxes
- managing debt
- retirement planning
- estate planning.
For Business Owners, financial management is integral to the health of the business. No matter how skilled you are at creating a product, providing a service, or marketing your wares, the money you earn will slip between your fingers if you don't know how to efficiently collect it, keep track of it, save it, and spend or invest it wisely.
Poor financial management is one of the leading reasons that businesses fail. In many cases, failure could have been avoided if the owners had applied sound financial principles to all their dealings and decisions. Financial management is not something that you can leave to your banker, financial planner, or accountant — you need to understand the basic principles yourself and use them on a daily basis.
