Reflections and Resolutions Regarding Money

So, it’s a new year and time for reflections and resolutions. 

What did you accomplish last year? 


What are you looking to accomplish this year or maybe next year? 

Do you have a resolution? 

Do you believe in them? 

— Miri Upton

What if you broke down your goal into manageable pieces or have a few small ones?

If your goal is to save more money this year, I’d like to help you make it a reality.  Do you have a budget?  Take a look at the sample below and use it as a guide even has the calculations :).   Keep it simple.  Feel free to reach out with any questions you have.  I’d be happy to share them in future blogs.
