2 | MAKE A PLAN FOR THE NEXT YEAR


Once you’ve reflected on the good and bad from the last year. Start looking at what the New Year will bring for you and what you want out of it. 

Here’s How:

  • Ask yourself: “What are my financial goals going into this year?” or “What do I want out of my money this year?”
  • Make a list of your financial goals 
  • Now prioritize that list. What is the most important goal for you to hit this year? What is the least important? 

Once you have a list, use yourGoal-Setting Roadmap to set up your plan for hitting your financial goals.  

Writing financial goals can be difficult, that is why our goal roadmap was created, we want to help you organize and prioritize your goals, nail down time frames for completion and help you identify how you will actually reach your financial goals. 


3 | MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE USING YOUR BUDGETEVERY SINGLE MONTH!


Your budget is your roadmap for success with money, if you do not have a budget. Now is the time to start!
