In Goal Setting by Gen Y Finance Guy15 Comments

Reading Time: 6 minutesWhat a year 2016 turned out to be. As many of you who have already read my short list of 2017 goals know, this year I am guilty of setting too many goals.

2017 Goals – Go Big or Go Home – But Focus

In Goal Setting by Gen Y Finance Guy26 Comments

Reading Time: 4 minutesIn any given year I usually have a dozen or so goals. But sometime during the middle of 2016 it dawned on me that maybe less is more.

In Goal Setting by Gen Y Finance Guy4 Comments

Reading Time: 6 minutesWell, it feels like I fell asleep on January 1st and woke up in September. Can you believe that 8 months are already gone? FOREVER. Like money, time can also be so very fleeting. The unfortunate truth is that by now, most people have already given up on their goals, and that makes me sad ( 🙁 ). In my opinion …

Reading Time: 6 minutesAs I write this monthly goal check-in we are officially 214 days into 2016 (or ~59% complete).
