What’s the one piece of money advice you wish everyone would follow and why?

Everyone is capable of building wealth, but it is best done by utilizing boring strategies and is not meant to be exciting!

What’s the most important thing to do to build wealth?

Be intentional about your spending to make sure your money is actually helping you meet your financial goals. Automating your savings is an easy trick to help you stay on track.

What’s your best tip for fighting inflation?

Review your budget and see where you can make small adjustments to save money, and make sure your emergency fund is in a high-yield savings account to help you make money. One benefit of inflation is it has caused interest rates to go up, so now we have decent rates on high-yield savings accounts.

What’s the biggest mistake people make when it comes to money and what should they do instead?

Overspend on housing, whether that is rent or a mortgage. Before you sign for an apartment or buy a house, make sure you can actually afford it and the expenses that come with it. Houses are expensive. When it comes to buying a house, don’t forget insurance, taxes and a monthly contribution to an emergency fund for those unexpected home repairs. Spending too much on housing can detract from your other financial goals.
