15-DAY FINANCE CHALLENGE

Goal-to-Goal Challenge Do you want to take responsibility for your finances? Kick-start the process by setting a goal and giving yourself two weeks to achieve it. That way, even if you’re really busy with your day-to-day life, you’ll have plenty of time to make it happen. First, decide which area of your finances you need to focus on. It could be anything, such as sorting out your documents, getting out of debt, planning for your retirement or just saving more each month. Then, commit to the challenge and take action. Once you have conquered this first goal, you can move on to another area that needs your attention until you’ve mastered every aspect of your own finances!

Session Q & A

  • A: Yes! Women are expected to live longer than men and are therefore more likely to deal with retirement alone. Educating yourself financially will empower you to be responsible for your own finances so you can start making decisions and act on everything you learn.

  • A: The way to make some extra cash might be right under your nose! Think about whether any of your strengths or things you love to do are potential money spinners. And remember, no matter who you are and what you do, you should charge for your time!

  • A: Yes, it’s important not to leave money on the table. Find out what your company offers and take advantage of the retirement plans available to you.

  • A: Divide your papers into different groups, such as legal documents, financial records and insurance policies. This will help you keep track of everything and make documents easy to find when you need them.
