Savings and Letting Your Money Work For You with Dr. Boyce Watkins
Play • 15 min

Today, we talk with host Dr. Boyce Watkins about savings.

To secure your economic future, there’s one step you must take before any others. Before buying a home or paying off debt, you must first start saving. Building your savings is a fundamental skill so few of us have learned in a capitalist economy. Fortunately, it’s a skill you can start developing today. On this episode, we talk about budgeting, side hustling, and letting your money work for you.
