Welcome to 2006. This year is the one where I’m going to help you take control of your personal finances and start investing for the future. This is in contrast to most people, who have no clue where they are spending money, what investing really is, or why it’s important.
Think of me as your drill sergeant, only a frail, Indian version with a larger vocabulary and, frankly, better etiquette.
So take this week and get all your other errands out of the way. Finish your emails, feed your cat, whatever.
Because starting next week, we are going to be taking a multi-week journey down the yellow brick road of personal finance. And I will drag you by your hair if necessary!!!
- Want to figure out how much you spend every week, and how it compares to others? We’ll do that.
- Want to know how much of your income you should save? No problem.
- Do you have questions about paying off debt vs. investing? Ok.
- Want to know where you should invest? Does a Roth IRA make sense for you? What about your 401(k)? We’ll do all of these, and more.
So handle your stuff this week. Because next week, I am going to kick some personal-finance ass–yours!!!!!!!!!!
