New Year. New Goals.
As the first month of the year, January signifies a chance for new beginnings, starting over or, at the very least, making a few changes. So it's not surprising that many of us are proclaiming, in the form of New Year's resolutions, our intentions in the year ahead to eat healthier, go to the gym more, introduce new habits, and make other adjustments in our daily lives.
January also happens to be National Financial Wellness Month. After a complicated year, 2022 dawns with new opportunities. Now is the time to think about the new year and plan for action. A great place to start is by understanding your spending habits. There’s a wide range of easy-to-use apps and software programs that can help you track and analyze what money goes out and where, and what you have coming in. Or you can simply use a spreadsheet to track budget.
So what better time to reflect on your financial wellness and set some goals for improving it -- or perhaps achieving some specific finance-related goals? Whether it's a vow to cut back on eating out at restaurants or to get an estate plan in place, most everyone could benefit from making a few financially oriented changes. If you've never worked with a financial advisor, perhaps this is a good time to do so (say "hello" to our friendly financial advisors).
