Chicago Marathon Training 2014.

I had fallen off the wagon a bit in terms of both healthy eating and my workouts, but now that my training for the Chicago Marathon has officially started, I’m keeping myself accountable by posting daily pictures with the hashtag #CMT14 on my Instagram. I will upload some of them here as well, but feel free to follow my progress @justinetien!!

9 Habits That Will Help You Build Wealth On A Small Salary

The little things can make all the difference between a life of prosperity and one of constant financial stress.

1. Reverse Your Thinking: “Most people spend some money, pay their bills and save what’s left,” says Butler. “And that’s backwards: You should be saving for your financial goals first, paying your bills and and then consider spending the money you have leftover.”

2. Look Where You Want To Go: To get going on saving for the future, financial experts often suggest having a five-year plan, where you create specific money goals you’d like to achieve in five years and what you need to achieve those goals.

3. Adopt Your Own Private Mind Tricks: Behavioral economists believe that adopting good heuristics can help one develop good money habits

4. Live Like a “Secret” Rich Person: Much of the wealth in America is more often the result of hard work, diligent savings, and living below your means.

5. Tackle Retirement Now: Unfortunately the later you start saving, the more you’ll have to save. But the sooner you sock money away, the more time it has to compound and grow.

6. Know What’s Coming In, and What’s Going Out: If you don’t know what’s coming into your bank account and what’s going out, chances are you don’t know how much you can devote to your goals.

7. Getting Out of Debt: If you have bad debt — not student loans and mortgages, but credit card debt, where you’re paying high monthly interest rates — nixing it and getting out of the habit of being a debtor — should be priority number one.

8. Increasing Your EarningsThere are two ways to increase your net worth: Spend less or save more money.

9. Consider Consulting An Expert: There are times in life when consulting an expert pays you back in spades. Even if you’re doing everything you can to start good money habits, using a qualified financial planner can help keep you on track — and help you see the big picture.
