Financial Success - Step 1. Be Accountable & Responsible
The first step on the path to financial success is accepting accountability and responsibility. Understand that you are the one in control of your financial future and that every decision or choice you make can have a significant impact.
Not having a budget is like going on a trip without a roadmap. Just like needing to know where you are going, you need financial goals and a step-by-step plan on how to achieve them. For detailed help on developing a spending plan, visit the Federal Student Aid site.
