We're well into the new year and hopefully on a good footing to perosnal financial success. The economy is recovering, new markets are opening up and the opportunities are available to us all for enjoying a profitable 2012. But as with everything that we do well, it all starts with a well thought-out plan.
Step One: Investing in Your Future
A good place to begin is by realistically evaluating your financial goals. Where do you want to be six months from now? And what about six years from now? What do you need to do today in order to be prepared for tomorrow? The first item in your plan should address a savings plan; some sort of an investment scheme that is funded straight from the top of your monthly income. Don't wait until you have a little extra money to put away for the future - take a regular investment plan seriously by funding it first.
