Assess Your Current Financial Situation
One of the first steps to gain riches and financial freedom is to assess your current financial situation. In order to do this, you will need to gather some pertinent information that includes you current bank statements, your bills, your estimated monthly income and any other investment accounts that you have.

After you have taken the first few financial assessment tests, you can begin the process of mapping out your financial future. When you are equipped with financial tools that can help you see where you can make improvements to your saving accounts and retirement accounts, it is easier to make the right decision. As a general rule, if you are not in a great position to save due to high-interest credit card bills, make an effort to get these cards paid off as soon as possible. Every time you make a payment and decrease your principal, you are paying less in interest fees. Over time, the amount of money you pay in interest can really add up and detract you from saving or planning for retirement. Once your cards are paid in full, take care not to max them out or run the bill back up. When you use credit cards in this way, you are almost guaranteed to stay broke your entire life. If you can use your cards in moderation, that is fine. If they offer rewards for occasional use, there is nothing wrong with that. Just be sure not to charge anything more than what you can afford to pay off at the end of the month. When you use credit cards intelligently, they can be helpful and offer you a few benefits. If you are not able to use them responsibly, they can quickly become a problem.
