Financial Habits that Determine Your Future – Episode 123

September 18, 2019

Over the course of our lives, our habits become ingrained and the small things we do day after day shape who we become. This is especially true of our money as simple routines can be life-changing, but don’t forget the door swings both ways. While positive financial habits can lead to massive wins for us down the road, negative habits can lead to some pretty grim consequences. In this episode we discuss the ‘what’ and the ‘how’- what are some great financial behaviors to begin practicing, and how to stick with it and transform those behaviors into long lasting habits.

  • We mentioned the Chrome extension: Time Well Spent which converts all dollars amounts to the equivalent amount of time you’d have to spend working! It has been updated in a minute, but we still found it helpful and interesting. Thanks for sending this our way David!

  • For tracking and budgeting we recommend Mint and YNAB. And if you’re new to budgeting, check out this post on 4 easy budgeting methods to get started.
