It’s the end of the month and you have close to $0 in the bank. You’re not really sure how you got to this point, but you’re here and you’re hurting. No matter how much money you make, know this: unless you’re a billionaire, it’s extremely easy to outspend your income.
We’ve all been there before. Some of us have been able to break free of that cycle and end up in a better place. But how about you? Are you willing to do what it takes to regain control over your finances? Or would you rather keep succumbing to that stress month after month?
There’s only one right answer, if you ask me.
If you’re ready to take that first step, go ahead and visit Better Money Habits.
This website is a joint endeavor between Bank of America and Khan Academy. While Bank of America may not have the greatest reputation as a financial institution, Khan Academy is renowned for providing free high-quality education.
