Grow your Income

To establish and maintain financial security, a stable monthly income is a must.  This income should be sufficient to meet the basic monthly needs of your spending plan.  Even people who are employed should be growing their income by expanding their skills and accepting positions of greater responsibility over time.  For people just getting started, sometimes a second job can bring in the income needed to quickly pay off a debt or jump start your savings plan.
