Success in any activity might involve a little luck, but it often requires a good deal of planning. Career success depends on many factors, some of which include establishing a plan, self-assessment, and making informed decisions. Those same factors help you manage your personal finances. More importantly, the two activities are closely entwined because changes in your personal finances can have profound effects on your career.

There’s a lot to think about when it comes to the financial side of managing your career. Unless you’re super well off, money will always come into play in your decisions. Managing your money well can not only you give you financial freedom in the traditional sense—retire early, passive income, pay the bills, etc.—but it gives you the freedom to do what you want in your career.

Have you ever been in a position where any type of promotion would be welcome just to give you a little breathing room in your budget?

Have you ever been on a career path that wasn’t right for you?

Have you ever been underpaid, treated unfairly or discriminated against in your career?

Have you ever wanted to quit your job to start your own business?

The answers to these questions all involve some aspect of money. The ideal career speaks first and foremost to your heart and then to your wallet. Both aspects require planning. Intrinsic rewards may include the feeling that your work is meaningful to you or helpful to others. It is also important for the rewards to include a salary that allows you to meet your financial objectives. And it is just as important for you to manage your money to meet your career objectives.
