During the month of September I want to talk about and learn about money.
Most of us need money to pay for some of our basic needs, like food and shelter, as well as things that aren’t so basic, like trips and chocolate bars.
I want to learn about saving, investing, retirement, and so on. I realize I won’t become an expert or financial advisor in one month. But, learning a little here and there couldn’t hurt.
Thankfully, I make enough money to cover my bills with some wiggle room, and want to figure out how to save what I can for emergencies, trips, and even retirement, while enjoying my life now.
I want to share the resources and information I learn about with you on this channel because I think it’s related to my mission here. “… to discuss and explore a healthy and happy lifestyle through compassion, mindfulness, and minimalism.”
We need money, at least some, to be healthy and happy.
I can be compassionate in different ways if I can save some money to give away.
I need to be more mindful of my financial situation in order to make the best out of it.
Lastly, minimizing unnecessary expenses and maximizing savings will only help me achieve what I want to in life.
So here’s what I want to learn, specifically:
- How to streamline and minimize monthly expenses
- How to still have fun while saving money
- What I need to do to have a savings account for emergencies, for fun, and for retirement
- How, what, and why to invest
Do you have any resources you can recommend? What are your financial goals?
