Many Americans are striving to reach prosperity in their lives. And though prosperity means different things to different people, 87% believe that achieving their financial goals is crucial to living the life they want. However, a new survey by Intuit reveals that 4 out of 5 Americans feel that prosperity is out of reach for them today, and just as many are delaying personal milestones like marriage or having a family as a result. Yet, despite their current struggles, 80% see financial success in the future and 58% of Americans are hopeful they will achieve prosperity eventually.

Here to address these obstacles – and how we can begin to make strides towards our financial goals – is Amazon #1 bestselling author Tiffany Aliche, aka “The Budgetnista.
