What a crazy whirlwind my finances were in these last two years. 2014 will definitely be my year to whip that department into shape!! FOR REAL.
Last week Thursday I shared about my 23 POUND WEIGHT LOSS in conjunction with some of my health goals for the year, and so this week I wanted to talk about finances.
When I was in my previous relationship, finances were a definite hardship. If I start to go into detail this may turn into a badgering fest - so I'll do as my mom said and keep my mouth shut since I don't have anything nice to say on the topic. HOWEVER... one of the biggest blessings in being single is being able to get this important part of my life back on track.
Though I'd just love to go on a shopping spree every two weeks, because I barely saw a mall the past two years; I find JOY in knowing that I am taking care of my financial business and being a good steward over my money.
2014 Financial Goals:
- Review interest rates for loans and credit cards.
- Pay off one of three student loans.
- Pay above the minimum on my credit card every month. Y'all I'm down from four credit cards to one! That's a celebration in itself. If I do end up using my credit card for someone, I will have to pay off the credit I used in addition to paying above the minimum amount owed.
- Create a steady side income. For a little over a year I've slowly been building up a side income, but it hasn't been stable in the least. I have multiple streams of revenue, which is nice - but I'd really like to build each one up so that they generate consistent income. How I'm gonna do that? No idea at the moment, but strategy sessions will definitely be happening at a Starbucks soon!
Do you have any financial goals this year? Please share in the comments!
