Pay for a consultation
There is a lot of free, helpful information out there but, you can't always to get what you need from free things. If you can, reach out to someone who can offer you advice that is best for your particular situation.
You will have a chance to ask all the questions you have and get a realistic plan of how you can execute your goals, which is an advantage over free information that may not give you any direction or resolutions.
Get an accountability partner
There are many benefits that come from collaborating with someone who has the same desire as you. And actually, you can find that your friend or close family member would want to improve their finances as well so this might be easier than you think.
This is the person who can motivate you to reach those targets you have set and also call you out when you aren't doing what you're supposed to do. This might be way better than fully relying on your own discipline when you're only a beginner.
Go one step at a time
Before you perfect your budgeting, saving and investing skills, it will take some time. You might also already have some bad money habits that you need to get rid of and that will need some readjusting as well.
The journey is long and there will be some ups and downs. What might help you stay encouraged is going one day at a time.
