Ask just about any personal finance expert how to start taking control of your money and they’ll give you the same advice: Figure out where your money goes.
It’s a lot harder than it sounds.
Have you ever left a bill unopened, to deal with it later? Are you 100% sure which subscriptions are charging you every month? Which of your debts has the highest interest rate? Quick, off the top of your head: How much money do you have in cash savings?
Chances are, you can’t answer some of these questions without a good deal of password-finding, terms-reading, and note-taking. And that’s normal! But being aware of your money (all of it) is a crucial step on the path to building long-term wealth.
Welcome to the Master Your Money Bootcamp
Master Your Money Bootcamps are month-long challenges broken into simple one-week exercises to help you take control of your money.
Over the course of 2021, we’ll conduct four of these Bootcamps, each culminating in a free, live, virtual discussion among experts about how to make the most of the tasks you’ve already accomplished. You can take all four Bootcamps this year, or pick and choose the ones that give the guidance you need most.
For each exercise, you’ll get a detailed explanation of how to complete it and why it’s important. Use the hashtags #MasterYourMoney and #MasterYourMoneyBootcamp to share your thoughts, progress, and connect with others across our Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram as you make your way through each exercise, then join us for the live events.
Our first Bootcamp exercise launches Monday, April 19, 2021. You don’t have to sign up — just dive in! Here’s what you’ll accomplish in just one month (we’ll link to each exercise as it goes live):
