FINANCIAL FRIDAY!



Happy March! I hope your month has been great so far! This year is moving along very quickly. This is a great time to make sure you are investing properly for your future so your 2017 will be better financially than 2016. The statistics say that close to 60% of Americans don't have $1,000 in savings and 50% of the workers have $25,000 or less in retirement. That means a lot of people are paying everyone else except for themselves.


 Remember the biggest bill in your home should be yourself!  I've always kept it simple in terms of finances.  ... Simplicity wins!

-Emergency fund
-Short term accounts
-Long term wealth building accounts

 These accounts should be set up properly in accordance to your immediate and long term needs.


 Once you have developed these wealth building accounts you can start to do things like the
 $500 challenge that I recently started. The money from this challenge is extra money that can be placed towards the three accounts to collapse time frame and speed up the process to financial freedom. You also can just spend the extra money from this challenge. When your main accounts are in place and functioning properly you can spend extra money especially on larger purchases guilt free.

 Well thank you for your reading and I pray you have a wonderful and blessed weekend!!

  15. That is an amazing dress on you - love the colour paired with the equally cheerful colourful handbag. Good advice about saving too, so important to have an emergency fund!

    Hope you are having a great week! Happy International Women's Day! :)
