Take Control of Your Finances

Having money is like having an army. Every dollar represents one soldier. The stronger your army, the safer you can sleep at night. But like any army needs discipline, you need to manage your soldiers.

As the old proverb goes: “Money is a good servant but a bad master.” If you don’t control your money, it will control you.
