If your New Year’s resolution is to get your finances in order, the holiday is now over and the work begins. Follow these helpful guidlines to help you get the early 2013 started out on solid financial footing.
In this economy - and especially during this time of year - many of us are facing our very own fiscal cliff. While we may not be able to raise revenue as easily as the federal government can, these five steps may help you reach both solvency and help you put savings in the bank, financial planners say. Once you’re free of debt and ready to grow your savings, you can look to financial services companies for investment advice, including banks (Bank of America, Wells Fargo and others), insurers (State Farm, Allianz and others) and brokers (Edward Jones, for example). Good luck and may your new year bring you success in your financial goals.
