If you’re new here, every month I share how I’m doing with my goals for the year. This includes personal, blogging/business, and of course financial goals. This post holds me accountable to the goals I set every year, but more importantly, it helps my readers to see that having financial goals in place are the key to succeeding with money. If you need help setting financial goals, make sure you read this post here on the steps to setting financial goals.
So crazy things happened this weekend…I finally got to be on the cover of a magazine! Okay, so it wasn’t Seventeen like I had wanted back when I was like 14, but hey, I’ll take this and cross it off my bucket list! If you want to see the online version of the magazine, head here.
