Many people make resolutions to coincide with the advent of the New Year, including becoming more financially secure. If you want to improve your financial outlook, now is a good time to take steps to achieve this goal.
TAP THE EXPERTS
You go to a doctor for medical care and a mechanic to fix your vehicle. Why not work with a career consultant to learn how to advance in your career and earn more money? Or work with a personal trainer or nutrition expert to improve your health, which can ultimately lower your healthcare costs.
PREPARE FOR TOMORROW
Time flies — just ask any Baby Boomer who didn’t save enough for retirement. A renewed effort to put more money away might help you save more quickly for a new home or a child’s college costs, while markedly improving your retirement readiness.
SAVE MORE TODAY
Where will you find all that money for tomorrow? Learn to budget and stick to it. Skip an occasional lunch or expensive latte. Consider trimming your smartphone and cable television services for more savings.
