The new year is a time to take stock in what we have achieved as well as what’s left to do—or, as we at GoGirl like to put it, it’s a time for betterment. We feel strongly that everyone, no matter the age, gender, or lifestyle, is for the better by having a solid financial plan, not just for the present, but for the years to come. That’s why we’re thrilled to be participating in Betterment’s Blogging for a Better New Year Blog Carnival this year! We’ve taken all that we have learned at GoGirl since our inception in 2011 and have put together a list of the most important financial goals you should be working toward this year, for yourself, if you’re in a relationship, and if you have kids. The goals are posted on Betterment’s Blog Carnival, which you can find here. For follow-up information about any of these goals, please check out the GoGirl’s archives, and feel free to contact us!
