Jan 2, 2018

2018 will soon be upon us and as we look to the new year, it’s a great time for us to reflect on 2017 and our hopes for 2018. We need to be aware of how and why we spent our money the way we did this year.


"As we move forward on our collective financial fitness journey it is important to remember to take action!  Even small changes can have a big impact – you don't need to tackle everything at once."  - Tracey Bissett



On today’s episode we are going to examine 2017 and 2018 in relation to the Bissett Financial Framework. I’ll revisit the three elements of the Framework which include 1) Cash Flow, 2) Savings and 2) Debt Management. I’ll also share how you can automate your savings and how to minimize debt so you can be financially fit in 2018.



“Make 2018 the year to get your will and powers of attorney in order – have the right people speak for you when you can't.” - Tracey Bissett
