EarningDiary Article: A Comprehensive Review of the Concept “Pay Yourself First”

I was recently interviewed by Lakhyajyoti Saikia from EarningDiary about the concept of “Pay Yourself First,” which is a fundamental financial planning concept.

It refers to the practice of prioritizing saving and investing a portion of your income before you allocate funds for other expenses.

In this article you’ll learn:

  • How to lay the foundation of achieving your financial goals and having the life that you want.
