5 Ingredients of Financial Fitness

So, how will all these recipes lead me to a home? It’s all in the ingredients…

One way to think about how you’re going to make this work is to consider how athletes stay fit. Their fitness comes from eating right, and so they carefully follow a strict diet of low-fat breads and cereals, adding fruits and vegetables, and then meat and dairy. By regularly maintaining such a diet they build up a level of fitness that helps them achieve success in their upcoming big event.

In a very similar way you will build up your financial fitness by practicing good money management, improving your credit, protecting your money and identity, and getting a better-paying job. Being consistent about these things will give you the strength and stamina to achieve success in the upcoming test of your financial fitness: your plan to own a home!
