2018 Goals Review and 2019 Goals

It is time to set our family Goals for 2019 and to reflect on 2018 results. This is easier to do if you are single but if married, I suggest you take your time and do it with your spouse to make sure you are on the same page. If not then it will be […]

December 2018 and Financial and Goals
