Getting control of your money with some good financial tools is one of the most important things you can do! In fact it can have a direct impact on finding work that you love. If you aren’t in control of your money, than life begins to make decisions for you.

Here are some simple FREE Financial Tools to help you get started. Parents, I encourage you to help your teen get started with these. You can show them how the family finances work, and they can learn from your experience.

The First Tool is a Spending Tracker. It will help you keep track of your daily expenditures, kind of like a checkbook ledger but in an Exel Spreadsheet that will do the calculations for you. I have been using this for a couple of years now and it works very well for me. I hope it helps you too! Go ahead and download the tool for your own use. It’s FREE! In fact here is a tutorial on how to use it. It’s about a 10 minute video and will give you a quick overview.
