It’s that time again where we celebrate the holidays and ring in the new year. What new blessings will 2017 bring to you? Well 2016, I must say was not so good to me famiy wise, as I lost a loved one. Hopefully 2017 will be another year full of financial cheer, as the markets have been up so far this past year. The markets are still doing ok given the travesty of the presidential results. I don’t know how people can vote in a reality TV star to hold the highest office in America, but I will leave the politcial talk for another day. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you happy savers.
This is the time where we really need to reflect if this past year really helped or hindered our financial lives. If it helped you great keep on the right path, and if it hindered you lets try to make positive changes to help you succeed. We really are the masters of how our financial life plays out.
Investing and saving is a product of how we manage our spending. If you over spend and have debt it will be hard to invest. But if you don’t over spend and give all your money to mastercard you will have surplus money to save.
We all need to re-evalute how we spend and if we could invest more in the new year. Investing is the end all be all to free anyone from a 9-to-5 and from getting back free time in the future. So in any way possible invest and be merry.
I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
