Financial Advice

Thu, March 11, 2021 8:41 PM

Do any of you have financial advice for how to afford everything I need such as medicine, supplements, and food? I don't have enough money to make ends meet and would like some advice. I would prefer to be as financially independent as possible and not need to borrow money. I live near Sarasota and Tampa Florida.

When it comes to your finances, it's important to have a plan. A financial plan can help you create a vision for your future and set goals for saving, spending and investing. It can also help you manage risk and make decisions about your money.
