Getting your finances on a healthy path can be difficult, but the BRZ team is here to help.

Tracking your spending and expenses.
A good starting place to improve your finances is by tracking all transactions, expenses and cash flow. The Business Insider published an article by Libby Kane who very kindly provided a customizable budgeting template to record and keep track of your earnings and expenses.

Listen daily to topics on finance podcasts.
For me, I learn best by listening to experts discuss subjects such as debt and equity finance, personal and private banking, wealth management, and amongst others. The FT Alphaville is a podcast I enjoy listening to and one of their episodes titled, ‘The wisdom of finance’ that I thought was insightful.
The host who’s a Harvard business and law professor, Mihir Desai and Matt Klein, they have an interesting discussion about how finance and insurance are closely related because of risk management. Insurance serves the purpose of reducing one’s party exposure to the effects of particular risks. These risks are delegated by policies for the insured in return for paying a premium.
Sticking to your budgeting plan.
Learning how to be financially responsible doesn’t have to be difficult, you just need to have a plan in place. Improving your money management will help you reach your goal of financial freedom. Likewise, Mint is a great app that will not only allow you to track your bank transaction, but also your credit score, bills, and investments.
They are owned by Intuit, Inc., a tech and finance company that offers good resources for when tax season rolls around again. In addition, the Mint app has a feature for you to compare life and auto quotes for insurance companies.
