Aside from your kids, money may be top of mind most of the time. Taking control of your finances can be a daunting task, but it doesn’t have to be. With a little help, you can get useful information on how to make, manage, save and grow your money.
HERE ARE THREE PERSONAL FINANCE EXPERTS FOR SINGLE MOTHERS (not listed in any particular order):
#1 Dave Ramsey – (Podcast/YouTube) The sometimes controversial author of the best-selling and highly rated author of “The Total Money Makeover” and “Financial Peace University” has a podcast and a YouTube show, The Dave Ramsey Show . On this show, people call in with real-life money issues, asking for advice on how to turnaround their financial situation. Sometimes these cases are extreme, like being $400K in student loan debt or paying $1K a month for a car note. You will learn a lot from watching this show or listening to the podcast on a regular basis.
#2 Michelle Singletary – The award-winning writer and Washington Post columnist of The Color of Money and author of “The 21-Day Financial Fast: Your Path to Financial Peace and Freedom”, “Spend Well, Live Rich (previously published as 7 Money Mantras for a Richer Life): How to Get What You Want with the Money You Have”, and “Your Money and Your Man: How You and Prince Charming Can Spend Well and Live Rich” gives real-world advice on personal finance.
#3 Tiffany “The Budgetnista” Aliche is the blogger, best-selling author of many books, including “The One-Week Budget” and creator of the Live Richer Challenge which is completely free to join. Get ready to be inspired to have fun learning to your money. The Budgetnista’s down-to-earth and very relatable style is more than engaging, it’s contagious. She’ll have you eager to tackle your budget and financial goals.
Taking control of your finances doesn’t have to be hard. Take one day at a time and one step at a time and, before you know it, you will be better in control of your money. Rome wasn’t built in a day—neither was your budget. It’s a process and journey. Enjoy it!
