“It is now January 17. All of your brokerage and financial statements for 2008 should have definitely arrived. Take some time this weekend to update your financial statement and see how you finished out the year. Make some projections and goals for the year if you have not already done so. Sure, those stock accounts are down, but where do you think they will be a year from now? Be forward in your thinking. What financial projects have you been delaying? Schedule them in your planner. Remember TheFinancialWoman.com has a free downloadable Net Worth spreadsheet you can use as a template. You will be amazed at how much more in control you feel by knowing where you are. While you are at it, download The Financial Woman’s workbook, 10 Steps to Financial Clarity and Action, available online and get started on it today.
Enjoy the weekend!
