4 Finance Resources to Help You Manage Money Better

Managing your personal finances is one of the most important tasks that we take on everyday. However it seems like there isn’t lot of emphasis in education on making a budget, investing in a 401K, managing your money responsibly, and the list goes on and on.

The team at IMBY reviewed apps, podcasts, and books to curate a list of 4 resources that we think would be the most helpful for anyone to manage their personal finances.

 

Apps

Mint

There are hundreds of personal finance apps but Mint has been the long-standing queen above all of them. Not only is it available on iOS and Androids, it also has a handy web app. Using Intuit Mint allows you to link all of your bank accounts, subscriptions, bills, and investments in one place. On top of that it provides free credit score updates, the ability to pay your bills, and create and track budgets. It is user-friendly with bright vibrant colors and easy to follow charts. Best of all, it’s free!

Podcasts

Farnoosh Torabi has been voted the #1 Female-Hosted Podcast of 2017 by Entrepreneur magazine and she more than lives up to that title.

Another female-run podcast that we love! Laura Adams introduces financial topics in short and easy to understand terms. She discusses a range of issues including investing, managing debt, 401Ks, and finding the right partner for financial success.

Books
