- Take basic steps to get on solid ground financially
With a new year upon us, now is the time to prepare to do better with your finances in 2012. To help you out on your journey I have Steve Stewart of MoneyplanSOS.com back on the show. Together we discuss how to set your goals for this year.
This is a two part episode. In part one we talk about first finding out where you stand financially. How much debt do you have? How much are you bringing home a month in pay? What is your net worth? These are all good questions to have the answers to before setting your goals.
We also discuss the beginner steps one must do to have a healthy financial plan. Included in this are $1,000 in the bank, pay off all your consumer debt, and have an emergency fund of 3-6 months.
Next week we will be back for part II where we will discuss more advanced things to do financially in addition to discussing some of the keys to financial goal setting.
