Believe it or not, financial happiness is not determined by how much money you make. If money cannot buy you happiness, what does financial happiness mean?

Financial happiness is not a cookie cutter. There are many forms of travel along the way of achieving financial happiness. Getting out of debt, managing your debt, raising your credit score, donating to a cause, building a savings, and not celebrating pay day as if it were a national holiday. All of these could be examples of a road to financial happiness.
