Today, I’m talking about building your support group. This is the fifth step in the 8 steps to becoming more financially sound series. Last time we talked about developing tax strategies to help you. This week, I want to share the importance of having a support group.
When you’re trying to make financial strides to better yourself, pay down debt, save for retirement or saving for a home it’s important to surround yourself with people that understand.
Talk with your spouse. Make sure you both are on the same page and want the same things. Working hard on paying down debt while having a spouse not understand can be difficult.
Let your close friends know what’s going on. It’s important to let those close to you know so they can cheer you on.
Get a financial expert. Make sure you have a financial expert that is there for you. Having someone that will listen to you and understands your goals is vital. Make sure you talk with your financial expert and let them know what you are wanting to accomplish. The two of you can develop a plan to help you reach your goals.
If you would like to sit down and talk about your goals to create a plan, give me a call at 573-686-3053. I’d be happy to have a conversation.
