Money Management Basics


Adulting is hard. The Real World can be a harsh wakeup call. 


Especially when you get your first paycheck and realize it's not as big as you thought it would be!

Or you get your first student loan bill and see how big of your monthly paycheck it is. 

Or when you go to buy your first car and realize your credit score isn't high enough. 

We talk a lot about the emotions, habits, and behaviors of money, but Money Fundamentals are the foundation!

What does it take to become Financially Independent? 


Money management basics include skills like banking, paying taxes, understanding loans, and building your credit, are the foundation for living an independent life with money.


This Level of Money Club teaches you how important personal finance tools work, and how you can best use them to reach your financial independence. It's all about working smarter, not harder!
