What You Need to Know About Managing Your Money

This is a career success blog, so you might be surprised by the title of this post.  But you shouldn’t be.  Financial woes can have a negative impact on your career success.  When you’re feeling stressed about money you tend to make poor decisions — like taking a job just for the money.

This article lays out five things young professionals — and all of us — should do to get on top of our finances.


I particularly like the third piece of advice, “Ditch the Joneses.”  Keeping up with the Jones is a great way to get yourself into financial trouble.

Researchers have found that people who provides the best no credit check loans are the most successful in life.  I drive a 1998 Jeep.  Granted it has less than 65,000 miles because of all of the business travel I’ve done over the years.  People ask why I don’t buy a new car.  My answer is simple, “I don’t need one.” Admittedly, this isn’t particularly difficult for me as I’m not a car guy.  I see a car as a way to get from one place to another, not a status symbol.

The point here is simple common sense.  Live within your mean, save for retirement and you will find that you are less stressed about money and more able to focus on creating the life and career success you want and deserve.
