How does the word “No” have anything to do with reaching your Financial Freedom Goals you may be asking me? It is a huge factor, I think. You need to be able to say “No” at times to be able to stay on your budget and disciplined to reach your goals.
Setting Financial Goals is the first rule in the Mills Way to Financial Freedom rules that we covered with the boys. The importance of goals is to help us make our dreams happen. You need to write them down to be able to make them happen. Difference between a Dream, Idea, Vision and a Goal is nothing more than writing it down.
Christmas is around the corner and people are starting to think about what they want to give at Christmas time. At our house we have our Christmas Tree up and our Outside decorations up also. We have been getting Christmas Ads in the mail from companies like Best Buy and Kohls. We have been getting plenty of emails sent to us about Black Friday sales coming up or pre black Friday sales.
Insurance isn’t maybe the most exciting subject but one that Darlene and myself feel is important to cover with our Teenage Boys. We want them to know that they need to protect their assets as their assets grow. Especially since today with all the Lawsuits that are filed. It is hard to not watch TV in our house and not have many different Personal Injury Lawyer Commercials come up on TV. Insurance costs a really big expense most people have and the costs can vary so much from company to company.
We feel it’s so important for Logan and Seth to start their lives after college with no Student Loans and No Car loans. No Debt at all. We are helping them out by giving them each a used car and they can live at home rent free until they are done with school. But they will need to pay for their college tuition, books and misc. charges. Having NO Student Loans is one of our Mills Way to Financial Freedom rules that we stress to the boys. We want them to grow into successful Adults and give us grandkids to play with someday. Way down the road. LOL
