As 2011 draws to a close, I want to congratulate each and every MyBudget client for swimming against the debt current. The fallout from the world debt crisis will continue next year, but you are already taking control of your finances.
Reflect on your achievements over the past 12 months. Even if you’ve only just joined MyBudget, taking that first step is a huge accomplishment. Give yourself the praise you deserve.
As we approach 2012, think of your budget as a roadmap and ask yourself where you would like it to take you. Perhaps debt reduction is still your priority. But as you reduce your debt you may find that your financial priorities change.
This is the time to think about those priorities and to set your goals for the New Year. Where do you want your money to take you in 2012 and beyond? Whether they are big or small, take some time over the coming days to write down your financial goals.
If you would like help with goal setting, contact our new Review & Planning Officer. Review & Planning is just one extra service we were proud to introduce in 2011 and we promise to continue extending our support services throughout 2012.
From my family to yours, I wish you prosperity, happiness and riches beyond money for the coming year!
