Obviously, it’s a new year and that means a few things. The first one is that the gym is crowded, and the second is that it’s time to make some resolutions for the year (I prefer goals, but call them intents if you desire). Either way, I feel like setting some goals for 2012 will be crucial to your success. If it’s your first year, you’ll probably miss the mark and have it be way too easy, or way too hard. I suggest setting a few of both so you dont feel like a failure at the end of the year. You’ve got 360+ days to work on them…and anyone can do something in that amount of time, right?
Joe over at Retire by 40 had a great post on his december cash flow. Glad things with your 4plex are shaping up joe! Keep up the wealth building!
Kevin over at thousandaire thinks college kids should get skills, not good grades. I couldnt agree more – I graduated college with approximately 1 marketable skill (GIS – for those familiar), and not much else. After working for 3 years, I’ve got tons more to add to my resume, and wish I learned all these things in school.
The Money For College project is adopting a baby with his wife! Congrats!
Money beagle doesnt like christmas finances because he doesnt know how to categorize them. I find this happens to me at christmas as well as throughout the year. I shop at walmart, and sometimes pick up food there, as well as clothing or dog food. I usually just classify it as whatever I spent the highest percentage on.
Joe At RB40 has another post in here on motivation – good stuff for the new year!
