Introduction to Financial Empowerment
Hello everyone, my name is Sherma, and today I want to give you some financial advice that I think will help you live a better daily life. Don’t
assume that because I have a degree in finance and accounting and have spent the last 15 years working as a loans officer at a financial institution, that I’m about to give you long, complicated math’s equations; rather, read on for some simple tips that can help you become more financially independent and find stability.
My advice will be tailored to single-parent families because H.O.P.E concentrates on their needs, even if it can be applied to all kinds of families and individuals. Regardless of your financial status or budget, I intend to provide you with some straightforward advice that you may utilize daily.
I was not born with a silver spoon in my mouth, so while I am not a single parent, don’t let that stop you from listening to my counsel. I am also a wife and a mother, so even while my challenges are not at all comparable to those of a single parent, they are nonetheless somewhat familiar to me.
Financial management tips for single parent families
Everyone needs to manage their money more effectively, but single parents need to do so even more. Managing finances may sometimes seem overwhelming, but it’s for this reason that learning some basic financial management skills is essential so that you are empowered to handle your money.
First, be aware that managing your finances does not require a degree in finance or accounting. Financial management, which is basically handling your finances (money) in a responsible way that enables you to meet all your expenses and save for the future, is something that all of us are involved in daily, whether we are aware of it or not.
So, when you get paid at the end of the week/month, setting aside money for example, tithes, loans, bills, groceries, transportation, and other expenses is all part of managing your finances because no one puts their paycheck under their mattress and expects the bills to pay themselves, after all.
The next time you receive money/income, keep in mind that you are the master and manager of your finances.
Money is NOT your master!!!
You have the capability to direct that money toward your goals so let’s start where it matters most: at home. Financial institutions, organizations, and businesses all require effective financial management strategies, and that should also include our homes and families.
