Setting financial goals is something several people do at the start of every New Year. There’s a good chance that some of the financial resolutions you made at the beginning of 2021 didn’t happen, but 2022 is another year to try again.
While the New Year is a great time to set some good financial goals, it is important to set small realistic goals that will help you work toward your larger goals without getting disappointed.
Consider these financial goals to take on in the New Year.
This should be number one on your list of New Year’s resolutions because it is one of the best ways to build your wealth.
If you are ending 2021 without any investments, ensure to begin 2022 with an investment plan like the Rosabon Treasury Note (RTN). It is a rewarding investment plan that lets you enjoy as much as 16% interest on your funds.

Set A Budget And Stick To It
One of the best things you can do for your finances is set a budget. If you find a monthly budget too overwhelming, focus on creating a weekly budget.
Ensure that your budget is achievable and that it covers every expense – housing, food, and utility costs you usually pay. While it’s important to set a budget, it’s even more important to always return to it to confirm if you are on the right track.
Create An Emergency Fund
Everyone is vulnerable to unforeseen emergencies. And without proper planning, your financial stability could crumble should one arise.
It is important to establish an emergency fund that will provide a soft landing for you if/when the unexpected happens.
Your emergency fund should be at least 2 to 3 months’ worth of expenses. This fund may take a while to establish, but the personal financial freedom you gain from having it is worth the wait.
Get Out of Debt
Getting out of debt is another key step to taking control of your finances. When you work on getting out of debt, you get to save the money you’d otherwise put toward debt payments. This increases your savings or investment portfolio.
You should start by setting up a debt payment plan, then commit to sticking to your payment plan all year long. You can also sell off items, reduce spending and get extra jobs to pay off your debt.
When you are debt-free, you have more freedom, greater job flexibility, and more peace of mind. While it may take some sacrifice to make it happen, it is worth the effort.
Be More Financially Aware
You make better financial decisions when you know how to successfully manage your money.
You can do this by researching online, reading financial books, or by talking with trusted financial partners like Rosabon Financial Services.
Set a goal to read at least one in-depth source a month; a book or magazine will give much greater insight into a specific area of financial matters.
