Want to Meet Your Financial Goals? Here's the Trick (You Won't Believe How Easy It Actually Is)! by Ellen Rogin, CPA, CFP
Most people toss and turn about finances, wondering how they're going to meet their financial goals. I have the secret! What is it? Drum roll please...
Spend less than you earn!
OK, I know this is painfully obvious, yet most people don’t do it. So how should you start?
- Consider setting up an automatic savings plan, and make sure each and every month something is getting put away for the future. People rarely are bummed out that they save too much!
- The rest is simple math. Don't spend more than you make.
It may be difficult at first, but it's the most important financial step you can take.
