2014 Financial Goals

Thursday, January 16, 2014

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:
  1. Review interest rates for loans and credit cards.
  2. Pay off one of three student loans.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!

  1. These are awesome goals! Creating a steady side income is one of my major financial goals as well. Good luck with these, I know you can do it!

  2. Thank you Amber!! We can definitely keep each other accountable. Super pumped for 2014 :)

  3. These are great goals! I would like to work on creating a side income as well this year.

  4. Thank you Crystal!! :-) Have you given any thought into the type of revenue you'd like to bring in or how???

  5. Paying off one of your student loans is a great goal! I should get on board-- you go!

  6. I've thought about working on growing and starting to monetize my blog, but I also want my blog to remain a reflection of who I am. For years people have been telling me to sell my photography, so I'd like to go through my older archives and start pulling some of those out to start selling and I'd like to get back into photography this year. And a friend and I have a design business that we'd like to get off the ground this year. So I have a couple of options that I'm hoping to work through. :)

  7. That is great. I started an etsy shop in 2012, and so hopefully this year I can really incorporate it into my blog presence a little bit more and hopefully see some return on that. Good luck to yoU!

  8. Congrats on getting out of a toxic relationship and taking control of your finances. Also your weight loss! You are on fire girl. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have been slowly but surely trying to fix a mess that resulted from a similar situation. Goals are a great way to stay motivated and focused. I'all be cheering you on. ๐Ÿ˜„
