Today is the end of the first quarter of the year, a.k.a. Q1. Why should you care about this commonplace term from the world of finance and business?
Because an efficient way to move forward is to have a regular marker to stop and assess your progress. If you had to issue a quarterly report on You, Inc., what would it say?

Instead, here’s a digest of some Q1 highlights. Taking even one of these steps will lead to a significant shift in your net worth.
Redefine the idea of “wealth.” Forget acquiring senseless millions. Know what wealth means to you. You don’t have to become a Jim Cramer disciple to be a great investor, but you do have to start investing. Learn to talk about money—with yourself, with friends, especially with your spouse.
Last, remember that when you save a little, in fact you save a lot (in terms of stress, debt, bigger problems).
