Regardless of where we live, Salt Lake, Sandy, Holladay, Draper or South Jordan, it isÂ mid-year andÂ we all need to revisit our financial strategies and readjust our goals.Â Here are some tips to bulk up your bank account:
Keep your eyes on the prize.Â Focus your attention on the financial goals you want to achieve.
Write it down.Â You'll double your chances of achieving your financial goals if you write them down.Â Make them specific and measurable.
Organize.Â Identify your goals as short, intermediate or long term.
Short-term goals are those you want to accomplish within one year.Â Intermediate goals will take from one to five years to attain, and long-term goals will take five years or more to reach.
Create a contract with yourself.Â Then tell your spouse or a friend about your financial goals and ask for encouragement to help you stick with your plan.
Remember:Â With a solid financial plan in place, you can achieve your financial goals.
