To answer your question, how can you improve your personal finances
One of the best ways to improve your personal finances is by investing intentionally in cashflowing assets.
The most common are real estate rentals, businesses and royalties.
Your first step is to protect your savings from the external influence of monetary policies that will evaporate the value of your hard work.
Imagine youre in the middle of the desert.
Imagine that when you work, you get paid in water.
The first problem you will bump into will be how to store your water.
Use a glass instead of your hands.
The water will evaporate with time, correct

The next challenge will be to resolve long term reserves.
This seems like a simple solution you get multiple canteens and build up your store.
When you lose your strength to work, you will need to start consuming those canteens.
