New Year Goals for 2017

I can’t believe that January is over and I haven’t yet written down my 2017 new year goals. That means I am already a twelfth of the way towards failing! Time to fix that. Number zero of my new year goals: write down new year goals for 2017. Goal complete! Go me. But seriously let’s get into my new year goals for 2017, and see if I can turn them from text into reality. There will be some goals left over from 2016 that were not quite finished. As the saying goes: if at first you don’t succeed, make it...

Final Tally – 9 New Year Goals For 2016

With 2016 over it is time to have a look back at the new year goals I set at the start of the year. I was well on the way at the half way point, so lets see how many were reached at year end.

On Top Financially - Mountain 5

5 Realistic Steps To Win Financially

Many people would say there are more than five steps. Others would say just one or two things could get you on top financially. Both could be argued, but after reading many blogs, living out all of the five to some degree, and doing a lot of thinking, I have come up with my five realistic steps to get on top, stay on top, and win financially. To set the ground work I just want to say that by “on top” and “win” I mean not having to worry about money. I am not talking top 1% or 0.1%, I am talking...

9 New Year Goals For 2016

I have never been one to set new year goals. Never one to set goals in general actually. My goals have always been things like “do better” or “save more”, however this year I thought some more specific goals may be in order.

Increase Net Worth By $100k Initially I put $75k here, thinking that $100k was a bit too optimistic. However after I actually took the...
