Why Should I Set A Financial Goal?
Here’s the secret, Money is important.
And the second? Saving is not that fun.
We like to spend our money, we like to enjoy ourselves. We like to live in the moment, to be impulsive, to take that holiday, to say yes.
We like to embrace life. It feels good to take part.
There is a reason that people don’t like to save. One of those reasons is that more and more, people in their twenties simply don’t feel like adults. In fact, we think that the age to start building a financial plan is somewhere in our thirties. But we graduate, we get a job, we choose a career, in our twenties.
Imagine building for ten years with no plan. Imagine working day in day out and after a decade feeling like you got nowhere. That is why you should have a financial goal. And that is why you should set it now.
As the head of Parsonage Financial Planning, I am lucky enough to work with people at every stage in their financial planning journey, and that is why I have designed a ten week social media plan just for you.
Each week for the next ten weeks Parsonage are offering you the opportunity to learn more about your own money. We’ll be sharing with you ten tips designed specifically for people like you, people who want to build their wealth rather than work for money.
So why should you have a financial goal?
Simply put, you are important. And your financial goal is set by you, about you.
Do you want to get married, by a car, afford a house deposit. What is it that you want for you? Decide on that and you will get what you want sooner.
Having a clear financial goal is such an important part of building yourself a future you can enjoy. Having a financial goal is about making the right choices at the right time that get you where you want to be without making you miserable.
If you already know what you want to save for, the first step will be easy for you. If not, I’m delighted to hear that! Get thinking, what is it that you really want?
The only thing better than setting your financial goal is to share it with other people, and if you choose to share it with us, you can rely on our Chartered IFA status, ensuring you the highest quality support and advice.
At Parsonage we are passionate about sharing quality, clear, financial information with the next generation to empower you to make the right choices at the right time and build your wealth from the very beginning of your career.
