While money doesn’t officially buy happiness, it does give you freedom when it comes to taking risks and growing your career.
Having the right money mindset also gives you a sense of control and confidence, especially in this world of COVID-19. That confidence will give you stability, which reduces stress and keeps you feeling well.
