We are all a work in progress when it comes to our personal finances. Every one of us has the ability to save more, spend less, invest better, and make more money. So what are we doing about it? Personal finance journalist Rubina Ahmed-Haq will explain major roadblocks to saving money along with steps you can take today, no matter your financial situation, to be better with your money.
