Welcome to the final week of the Debitize Summer Shape Up. Our goal at Debitize is to empower our users (and everyone) to take control of their financial health.
So for a quick recap, here are our top 3 takeaways for keeping the Summer Shape Up going all year long:
- Pay attention to the numbers (bank statements, budget, FICO score, interest rates, restaurant bills). By checking these numbers regularly, you will stay on top of where you are at financially, be able to see discrepancies, and have a powerful relationship with your accomplishments. Staying close to the numbers will show you how your financial health changes over time.
- Pay down your debt – you’d be amazed at how much power comes from getting your debt under control and it doesn’t have to be hard. Set challenges for yourself, do them with a friend. Give up eating out for a month, have a garage sale, pick up extra shifts.
- Keep educating yourself – when you know better, you do better, and there are so many amazing resources in the world. Start with this list of awesome books recommended by Warren Buffet, Bill Gates, and a couple of other guys who are amazing with money.
