The first step to wise money management is to create a budget
The money management practices you develop for your current budget will be the same ones you use when your cash flow plan grows your income. If you have established poor practices they will carry over and make it difficult to grow your cash flow and maintain that growth. The good news is that if you develop wise practices from the start the benefits of those practices will also follow you as your income grows. If you want to see what your life could be like with a solid cash flow plan then you should listen to this episode today.

Today I still use this rule to improve my cash flow plan. Listen to this episode now to learn how to stabilize your finances today.
Third, save what you do not spend
Investing is an important part of any cash flow plan, but how do you get to the place where you have enough money set aside to invest? Saving money sounds like a simple process but is harder in practice than we would like it to be. In this episode, I share my foundational strategies for saving and how you can use them too. I also talk about a type of investing that is not as widely discussed: giving. Listen to this episode to find out why giving is just as important as saving when it comes to building a successful cash flow plan.
