We all know it’s easy to make a list, but completing the list is a whole other ball game.  You can write “spend less” or “get out of debt” for your resolutions, but will you actually succeed?  We’re here to say, “Yes!”

This year, you don’t have to worry about watching the months go by without a single resolution checked off.  Why?  Because we have three handy dandy tips for keeping your financial resolutions, so the New Year can mean a new financial you.  Start accomplishing your resolutions by doing the following:

  1. Make the list specific.  Simply putting “fix my finances” is a good notion, but when you go to complete the task, you’ll be tempted to skip it when you have to figure out what to do.  Try something more specific like, “work with my Money Coach to fix the errors on my credit report” or “eat out less to put more money towards paying off a loan.”
  2. Make a spending plan.  It’s hard to fix financial problems when you don’t know what’s going on with your money.  Figuring out your income and expenses will help you better manage how you use your money.
  3. Make an appointment with your Money Coach.  It’s especially hard to knock off financial resolutions when you don’t have accountability or direction.  Your Money Coach will help you lay out next steps to reach your financial goals and check off your New Year’s resolutions.

Whether the year is beginning or coming to a close, it is never too late to work on and complete your New Year’s financial resolutions.  Call a Money Coach today at 888-724-2326 and get ready to check off the list.
