Day 15: Set Financial Goals (28 Days of Financial Fitness Challenge)

Moore Income ·
You've probably heard the saying: This is especially true when it comes to finances. It is one thing to desire to live a life of financial freedom, but it is a completely different thing to actually take the time to set achievable goals to reach that point. Throughout this challenge, and especially today, I have had to really spend some time revisiting my financial goals. Some goals are big goals, while others are simply small goals for where I would like to be in the near future. If you...

Financial Accomplishments (SHARE YOURS)

Every small step in the right direction is one step closer to the goal! When it comes to financial fitness, every accomplishment (no matter how small) is important, as it helps you create a better financial future. Even something as small as not buying a coffee and instead putting that money you would have spent into savings is a financial accomplishment worth celebrating. The more times you do these small things, you begin to create good financial habits that you will carry with you the...

A recent win for me was that I figured out how to put an extra $230 payment on my car each month. I had been making good progress to pay my loan about 2 years early, and now I'm even closer - she should be paid off by July! (Yes, my car is a she. Her name is Birdie, short for Snowbird, because she's white and I bought her right after I moved to Florida.) Once that's done and I allocate those funds toward other debts (I hate my student loans so much), I also want to put aside money for...

I finally automated my distributions out of my paycheck into my savings and Roth IRA! And for the first time, I increased those distributions by 1% each, totally 22% of my paycheck paying myself first! Even though my paycheck looks smaller, it prevents me from spending more because I already took it off the top!

I've put $1,000 in the bank. Paid $500 and $750 on 2 credit cards off. Paid a bill of a $118 off which the $10 will go in my saving each month. The 2 credit cards I paid off that money will go to paying other credit cards off. I paid for my domain name for a year and hosting for 3 months. Instead of swapping my bank card i've been pulling a certain amount off my card and what ever change i get back i put that up and once the money gone i don't spend any more unless we need some thing food...

We have taken better control of our budget. I think I got the idea of "sinking funds" from a Penny Hoarder post. We figured out all our bills that are not monthly (car insurance, garbage bill, etc) and figured out a monthly payment for them. We have a separate account for that money. It broke us of the habit of raiding the savings account when we had a bill like that. So now savings grows without interference and we have money set aside when these bills come up!

Re: Using LinkedIn to build interested audiences and gain credibility

Moore Income ·
I ignored LinkedIn for quite some time but about a year ago I started focusing on it more. It really is a good tool for building an audience and connecting with people with very specific interests. When it comes to sales, while you can get them on LinkedIn, some people take things too far and just spam people with messages trying to sell their product or service. In my opinion this is a waste of time and makes me even less likely to buy. As with any social media platform, once you start...

Re: Using LinkedIn to build interested audiences and gain credibility

Same here @Moore Income , but once I realized LinkedIn's potential I started digging deeper. I find that the tool works well for attracting group members, and I use it only to send a welcome message to new connections. Automation can be a great tool, but moderation is really important. And with Linkedin especially one need to be extremely cautious with automation. Because not all automation tool content is accepted by LinkedIn. And may in some instances result in getting suspended or even...

Using LinkedIn to build interested audiences and gain credibility

Although it is nice to make a few extra dollars on the side. But most people however do work toward the " quitting your day job " Kind of online income. The effort requirement however is exponentially more demanding. Making a few extra dollars online require a lot less effort and can in most cases be fairly easy to achieve. But if you are thinking of working toward the quitting your day job kind of income, then be prepared to apply maximum effort. Which primarily involves building interested...

My life mantra:a drop turns into a puddle, a puddle to a pond, a pond to a lake and a lake to an ocean! Make every dollar work for you...Citibank 2% cash back cc. Charge everything and pay bill in full every month. Over 6 yrs we have earned over $7000 in cash back points. Pay as many bills as possible with the cc. We’re very frugal...shop at 2nd hand stores, order ice water when we eat out, etc...it’s the little things that add up. We’re super savers putting away over 30% of our earned...
