New Year, New Opportunities
January 2022

Inevitably, when New Year’s rolls around, there is excitement over new possibilities, goals, and financial savvy. The feeling of a fresh start, or a do-over, as you await the ball-drop at midnight can leave you wondering what resolution to set. Many of us even fall into the same routine of setting unobtainable and unrealistic goals. Here’s a tip: Start by aligning your personal and financial priorities. If you have a resolution to save more money for travel, make sure to evaluate your finances and set aside a dollar amount each month by spending less on coffee, nails, or that bad habit you’re trying to ditch. By deciding which financial barriers are in your way, it’ll be easier to remove extras like that weekly trip to the salon to meet your goals.
