A Virtual Conversation
Earlier this year, GreenPath hosted a special streaming event “The Financial Transformation You’ve Been Waiting For!” It was a virtual conversation featuring Tiffany “The Budgetnista” Aliche.
In this video highlight, The Budgetnista gives practical advice about next level “Adulting” as a time to learn the basics of saving and investing. She introduces us to her alter-ego “Wanda” who helps the Budgetnista stay on track for long-term goals.
What does it mean when the Budgetnista refers to “adulting?”
A common definition of the term is to behave in an adult manner, to engage in activities associated with adulthood.
As The Budgetnista notes, it’s a good time to emphasize the importance of healthy financial habits.
From automating bill payments to making a simple financial plan, simplifying your finances is a good step to building healthy financial habits.
Set a Budget
One of the most important steps to financial wellness is to create a budget. That sounds easy. But it’s more difficult than it seems.
Budgeting means making a plan to live within one’s means.
Budgeting should be a family project. A budget is difficult to stick to if only one person builds it. That job can be very stressful if that person does not have the full support and understanding of everybody in the family. The entire household should be aware of what is available to spend — or not spend.
When it comes to “adulting,” relatively small changes “nudge” us along in the direction of financial wellness

The Path to Adulting
Figuring out how to manage money is a key part of adulting.
