Get $ Fit Challenge

It’s that time of year!

You know… the time that most people think about fitness and resolutions.

However I’m not talking about physical fitness… I’m talking about financial fitness.

At Preferred Financial Strategies we are challenging our clients to think about little ways they can improve their financial fitness. We are calling it the:

“Get $ Fit Challenge”. 

Each month we will ask our clients, our listeners and our readers to respond to a simple challenge that will help them become more financially fit.

For January the “Get $ Fit Challenge”is simple…

Where are you willing to save now in order to spend later?

My weakness is purses. I like nice purses. But I don’t drive a fancy car and I don’t splurge on expensive coffee drinks and I ask Santa for them… that sort of helps! That’s how I justify it. What about you?  We all tend to justify our wants to make them feel more like a need, its human nature.

I read an article recently asking wealthy celebrities if they still choose to be frugal in certain ways in order to splurge in others despite the fact that they have “made it big”.  The answers were interesting. Several mentioned that they were willing to spend on making memories as opposed to buying stuff.

Did you know that rich people think differently? There is even a book written about it. Apparently average people see money through the eyes of emotion. Rich people think about money logically. Average people long for the good old days. Rich people dream of the future.

So, when you think about your financial future are you willing to save a little now in order to spend more later?  If so tell us about it.

If this strikes a chord with you let us know.

 We want to hear from you. 

Stay tuned for February’s                            “Get $ Fit Challenge”
