“Almost all the goals we want to have are tied to money matters”, Personal Finance Expert, Nimi Akinkugbe says. It is no news that finance goals top the list of the huge goals we’ve set for the New Year.
For our January 2020 Glazia Conversations, we had an Instagram Live chat on all things money with one of our favorites, Nimi Akinkugbe!. Tagged 2020 and Your Money Matters, this chat draws you a step closer to your finance goals and gives you insights into how you can become truly financially independent this New Year!
The conversation provides expert answers to practical finance questions sent in by our readers. Questions such as navigating the new year financially, saving as a low income earner or student, how to earn extra income, how to judiciously keep record of one’s budget and much more.
Even issues related to money matters among couples were not left out. According to Nimi, “Money matters are very sensitive in many homes so you have got to handle it with wisdom. It is one of the leading causes of friction, distrust and divorce in the world. It is important to discuss money with your partner. Unfortunately, most couples don’t discuss money before they become a team/ married couple”.
The short time you will invest watching this might just be all you need to sort out your finances this year. You also get access to a well-detailed and easy to understand spreadsheet for budgeting to help you monitor your yearly expenditure. It’s free and it’s available on Nimi’s website.
