Ready for financial freedom in 2017? Start by looking at 2016.

Posted on Posted in Personal Finance Advice

I love the beginning of the year because it is a perfect opportunity to review your past goals and create new ones. 2016 is fast coming to a close and 2017 is approaching. I am super excited about the new year because it will be another 365 days to run with, set new goals and achieve all of them.

The year 2016 was particularly bad for a lot of people due to various economic indices. Inflation grew from single digit to two digit reaching an all high rate of over 18%. Many individuals / families struggled all through the year. Many made bad financial decisions and invested wrongly thereby losing money.

Before you look forward into the new year, take a few minutes to look back into the year 2016 by calculating your present financial net-worth. You can read up HERE on how to calculate it. Did you achieve your financial goals or did you plunge deeper in a financial mess?

The good news is, 2017 is round the corner and now is the perfect time to start setting smart financial goals and getting organised for the new year. Yes it’s possible to achieve financial freedom in year 2017 by taking deliberate simple steps. I measure financial freedom not with the amount of money one has but the ability to fulfill all financial obligations with ease.

Many things can happen to your money in 2017: You can spend it, save it, invest it or gamble with it like people have done with MMM and other ponzi schemes. You can lose it, you can also give it away, and/or make it grow. However, you can have a better experience with money in the year 2017 by following these simple steps:

  • Write down your 2017 financial  goals. Financial goals.
  • Set up a budget.
  • Start earning a second income.
  • Track every expense.
  • Eliminate at least one unnecessary expense.
  • Pay off your debts as quickly as you can.
  • Save, invest smart & build your net-worth.
