Controlling Your Money

At Student Financial View, we encourage you to get regular financial checkups. According to author Karen Blumenthal, financial power doesn’t necessarily equate to having oodles of cash to throw away. In her book The Wall Street Journal Guide to Starting Your Financial Life, she says: 

“Money is power. It’s true—just not necessarily in the ways that you think. Having cash in the bank, relatively little debt, an investment portfolio, even a modest one, is very powerful, too. It means you have options. It means you can probably do the things in life that you really want to do. It means that you control your money rather than your money controlling you.”

Making the Right Financial Decisions

As a student, you are responsible for looking after your finances so you won’t have a problem managing them in the future. If you’re currently in school, you may think that the decisions you make involving small sums of money have little to do with where you’ll end up financially. However, this is simply not true.

The small savings you put away each month can become impressively large as you go through life. In addition, the small debts you accumulate can become a huge load to carry in the next year if you don’t pay them quickly.
