I used to get my Money Right!

Money Management

HYSA (High Yielding Savings Account)

Stop keeping your savings in a regular checking or savings account. Open a HYSA instead. They earn 50x more interest than a traditional savings account. This is where I keep my Reserve Money, Fun Coupons, Tax money, Vacation and Asset buying power accounts.

4 Banks You Want to Build Relationships With

I like to call these the "Big 4"...

American Express, Chase Bank, Wells Fargo, Bank of America. Having one of 2 is fine just make sure to avoid paying monthly fees if you don't meet minimum requirements from these banks. That $10-$15 adds up over the years.

Online Brokerage

When building my online portfolio, I use Robinhood and Schwab. Robinhood is more for simple buy and holds and Schwab for some more advanced swaps and other trades.

Robinhood

Roboadvisory

I got turned onto this company 6 years ago and have had great success with it. I personally add between $25-$250 a week. I started small then automated the bigger amount and I don't even notice it coming out. The key is automating it! This app also was were I learned my risk tolerance.
