Typically the difference between people who achieve their financial goals and those who don’t is not the income that they make, but rather the habits that they have or have not formed. What follows are four habits that we have found can make all the difference in achieving your financial goals.
PAY YOURSELF FIRST
Figure out what you want to save, then spend what is left over; not the other way around. Set a budget for monthly expenses and then set up auto contributions into various savings vehicles each month..
WRITE DOWN YOUR GOALS
Being clear about where you want to go is critical to forming a plan to get you there. Track quantitative goals as well as qualitative and be sure to update them as your income, expenses, and objectives change
ASSEMBLE YOUR TEAM
Engage experts in tax, investment, estate planning, etc. And allow them to communicate on your behalf so that your full financial plans are coordinated rather than pieced together.
PROTECT YOUR MONEY
Keep an eye on your credit score and know what impacts it. Take advantage of asset-protected vehicles such as retirement plans and segmented business interests. manage risk with the correct amounts of insurance. Be an informed consumer.
