When researching these courses, something jumped out at me. I learned that one raise can be worth a million at the end of your career if you invest it well and that the keys to success are checking your bank balance and budgeting. It’s something we probably all need a little help with, so here are the resources I found that can really help you get better with money this year!
#1 INVEST FOR SUCCESS
Learnvest has some amazing 15-20 minute classes that cover dozens of real life topics. The majority of the videos are led by women and topics range from budgeting to buying a home, credit health to insurance and investing to retirement. They also have a helpful section on the psychology of money and specific courses to help you accomplish your goals and address common issues.
#2 FROM BROKE TO BUDGET.
You Need A Budget can help you change the way you think about money and take control of your spending plan. Join one of their free live courses like Prioritize or Deal with your Debt and have the opportunity to chat over your questions with the class leaders.
#3 GET THAT DREAM RAISE.
I Will Teach You To Be Rich is a terrific 5-part guide to getting a raise and boosting your salary. Author Ramit Sethi notes that when it comes to being better with our money, many people often think first of redoing their budget or spending more wisely. But what will affect your financial situation more than any other factor is not how many (or how few) lattes you buy, but how much you earn. “You should try to negotiate your salary for a few reasons: The first is that a single $5,000 raise in your 20’s, if you properly invest it, can be worth more than a million over the course of your career. And that’s just one raise.”
