Happy New Year and welcome to my new blog, FinanceYourGoals.com! I created this blog to help readers understand that you can finance and achieve almost any goal you have. My intent is to help you identify and prioritize your goals, and then help you find a way to finance or fund them. Whether we like it or not, most goals are tied to money or have some sort of financial impact or opportunity cost. You may be trying to start a family, buy a house or make some sort of big purchase, change jobs, travel, start a business, retire (or retire early), become financially or location independent…whatever your goal is, if you can align your finances with your goal, you can achieve it.
Over the last five years, my husband and I have focused on increasing our net worth by maxing out our retirement savings contributions, and funding savings and non-retirement investment accounts in hopes of becoming financially independent. We’ve purchased three investment properties, earned several promotions, travelled relatively inexpensively and are hoping to start a family. We have an aggressive goal of becoming financially independent in the next five years (we’ll be in our late forties) by supporting ourselves via multiple streams of passive income.
It’s never too early or too late to start financing and achieving your goals! I’ve had the goal of becoming financially independent since I was in college, but it wasn’t until later in life that I started identifying specific goals, objectives and taking steps to make them happen, which in turn allowed for significant progress. This blog is a way for me to share my goals, tools and lessons learned, in hopes of holding myself accountable and inspiring you.
I look forward to sharing my journey, learning about yours and hopefully helping you along the way. Here’s to prioritizing what’s important to you, identifying and financing your goals in 2017!
