Here are three considerations to make, if you’re resolving to make progress financially in 2014:

  1. Understand What You’re Resolving To Do
  • Define Success (make a budget or set a goal).
  • Consider obstacles.
  • Know the costs (what sacrifices might need to be made?).
  1. Establish Accountability
  • Enlist your spouse, family member, or trusted friend.
  • Share your progress with them.
  • Allow them to share feedback and receive it.
  1. Begin
  • Don’t put off until tomorrow.
  • Expect bumps in the road.
  • Pick yourself up and start again.

If it is a financial matter around which you’re building your resolution, there’s a BayPort branch near you, where you can sit and discuss those plans with someone who has all the tools to help you on your way.
