Personal Finance

How’s your personal finance? What’s your credit score? Trying to get out of debt? This section gives our readers all the advice they need about personal finance. After reading through this section you won’t be afraid to talk about money ever again. Money can either hinder us or give us freedom. A lack of money with a mountain of debt can often hinder us from doing what we want to do, and those who have more money or just less to no debt are more free in what they can do. They have no limits.

What is ‘Personal Finance’

It is the science of handling money. It involves all financial decisions and activities of an individual or household – the practices of earning, saving, investing and spending.

“Many people take no care of their money till they come nearly to the end of it, and others do just the same with their time.” -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
