Now that the Ringing of the New Year and setting New Years Resolutions have passed, I wonder how many of us decided to turn our focus to our finances in the New Year?
With the state of our financial affairs contributing to so many factors of our lives – financial woes stress our marriage bliss, they cause the need to work additional hours or put up with the j.o.b because we can’t afford to make a change, reduces our time spent with friends due to funds, and the list goes on. perhaps a happier New Year lies in the weight of our wallets?
There’s a saying I heard:
“money can’t buy you happiness, but I’d rather cry in a mansion.”
I kid and digress.
It’s the start of a new year, the perfect time to stretch and tone some of our financial muscles and get our bank accounts in shape – starting with a solid financial foundation.
