Hey there, financial whiz!
You’re ready to discover the path to financial freedom but it’s all so overwhelming. Where do you start? Don’t stress. Small steps and good habits will take you a long way. At Aurem Wealth Solutions, we empower you to do just that. And the best part? We're sharing our secret sauce for free (unlike the Coca-Colas and KFCs of the world).
The Real First Step-Understanding Your Needs and Wants:
Contrary to popular belief, the first step towards financial freedom isn't setting goals. It's understanding your needs and wants. After all, chasing something you don't care about isn't fun. So, how do you determine your needs and wants?
Grab a piece of paper and write down a list of things you want to do in the next 12 months, 1-5 years, and 5+ years.
- It might be easy to list things for the first two sections but don't worry if it gets tricky for the last one.
- Write down whatever comes to your mind.If you can afford everything you've listed, congrats! Enjoy your world tour or other exciting plans.
- If you're like most of us and can't afford everything yet, don't worry. You'll get there soon.
Taking Practical Steps After Identifying Your Needs and Wants
Once you have your list, it's time to take action. Here are some practical steps to follow:
- Prioritize: Rank your needs and wants in order of importance. This will help you focus your efforts on the most important goals first.
- Break them down: For each need or want, break it down into smaller, achievable tasks. This will make it easier to track progress and maintain motivation.
- Set a timeline: Establish deadlines for each task, and make sure they're realistic. This will help you stay on track and keep a sense of urgency.
- Allocate resources: Determine how much money you'll need to accomplish each goal and identify any additional resources you might need, such as time or expertise.
- Create a budget: Based on your priorities and resource allocation, create a budget that outlines your income, expenses, and savings goals. This will help you stay accountable and track progress toward achieving your needs and wants.
