Two of the most popular New Years resolutions are to save money and get out of debt. Two of the most popular resolutions to be broken during the New Year will be saving and getting out of debt. Don't let that statistic be you!

When you make a resolution to lose weight, eat more healthy or exercise more, there are concrete steps you can take to make good on the resolution – gym membership, personal trainer, exercise class, nutrition club subscription, etc. And thanks to modern technology, you can monitor your progress down to the minute. Results are measurable almost immediately because you can calculate how much you exercise, what your nutrition intake is, and see weight coming off within a week or two.

What steps are you taking to ensure your financial resolutions can be achieved?

Unfortunately, addressing financial matters is not as easy as diet and exercise, and results are not usually immediate. For that reason, it's easy to get sidetracked more quickly, and becoming sidetracked or distracted is a leading cause when resolutions are broken.

Very often, people will put their efforts in what they think will yield the best results, but later become discouraged at disappointing results and give up. Or they will soon find their goals are not attainable or their objectives are not feasible and abandon any effort to keep the resolutions.

A qualified professional financial planner can help you with that. We can see the many aspects of your situation and provide recommendations on the best ways to meet your goals and help you refine your goals based on what is possible in your situation.
