Every day is full of choices. From chores around the house, to savings decisions involving your hard-earned money, choosing wisely matters. But when it comes to time to actual make your decisions, it’s important to understand that wisdom and intelligence are not the same thing. Intelligence is the ability to process information in a logical way. Having a high intelligence, however, is not enough. Even the smartest person can be swayed by biases and skewed information. That’s why using wisdom to make wise choices matters so much; wisdom allows us to be aware and make necessary corrections, as well as seek help and expertise when available. This is at the very heart of what it means to make “wise choices.”

 

Here at HawaiiUSA, our mission is to help you to make wise choices. And that starts with making financial wellness understandable. Financial wellness involves the process of learning how to successfully manage your money—both income and expense. Your ability to manage your financial wellness is also a key component to being able to handle financial-related stress through keeping track of expenses, making a budget, and sticking to savings and spending goals.

Saving made easy

One of the most essential parts of building your financial wellness and your ability to make financially wise choices is having a savings plan that works for you. Your savings is the foundation to unlocking a variety of ways to build up to something special. It’s looking towards a brighter financial future and allows you to plan for and achieve even bigger and better goals. It also means having more financial resources to cope with any of life’s unexpected surprises—good and bad. But with all the various account options out there, it’s easy to get lost in all the different nuances of each type. A great way to simplify the process is to identify the account characteristics and benefits that matter to you.
