Updates on my career goals

Hey everyone,

As some of you know (you’ve probably heard it on my show), I’ve been tired of the career I am currently in (accounting/payroll industry).

So, I’ve decided to try a different career path.

Since I have expertise in managing my own finances and have a Bachelors degree in Psychology, I would like to eventually be a financial coach/counselor.

I want to help people manage their finances better so they can achieve the goals they want (e.g. Retirement; Vacation).

Here are some goals I want to achieve to get there:

  • Save up money for training.
  • Get training on becoming a financial coach/counselor.
  • Get experience helping other people with their financial situations.
  • Find clients that need my services.
  • Get enough clients to support myself.
  • Find alternative streams of income (just in case I can’t get a lot of clients).
  • Get a business plan in tact.

I found out that the Dave Ramsey Training Program costs $1800. I have decided to start saving money to pay to take the course.

Let me know what you think.

Thank You and Have A Great Day,

Millennial Buddy

My Updated Financial Goals for 2018

Hey everyone,

This week I’ve been reading a book on Amazon Kindle Unlimited.

It stated in one of their chapters that I have to have financial goals set in place, so I can stay on track with my budget.

Here are some financial goals I have come up with:

  • Come up with money to buy a new laptop (My laptop is starting to fall apart)
  • Save $2300 to go back to school become a certified financial counselor.
  • Create a 6 month emergency fund just in case I lose my job.
  • Get a home repairs fund in place (to get expensive home repairs fixed).
  • Start a retirement fund (so I don’t have to work the rest of my life).

I will share action steps with you later.

Let me know what you think.

Thank You and Have A Nice Day,

Millennial Buddy

My plans for my blog for 2018

Hey everyone,

I know most of you are thinking about Christmas right now (and are not focused on 2018).

But, it’s time for me to share what I would like to do with the blog in 2018.

I want to get input from all of my readers to see what they like and don’t like (so I can plan ahead).

I currently have around 43 readers per post. Thank you for all that read my blog.

However, I would like more people to read my blog.

Here are some ideas for the blog:

  • Doing 1 or 2 extra posts a week. I have so much more to share than I thought.
  • Live chats once a week through Facebook, Periscope, and Instagram.
  • Work on a vlog series.
  • Writing a story series once a week.
  • Promote through my regular Facebook feed and Google Plus (and try paid advertising).
  • Do a better job connecting with people on all my social media accounts.
  • Maybe create a book.
  • Do a newsletter every month.
  • Do a book review once a month.
  • Review products.

Please let me know what you think.

Also, let me know what I could be doing better on my blog posts.

If you like my blog, please tell your friends about it and share my posts.

Thank You and God Bless You

My Fitness Goals

Hey everyone,

I have become friends with several people that are fit on Instagram.

They wanted to know what my fitness goals are.

I couldn’t think of them off the top of my head.

I came up with some over the weekend.

Here they are:

  • Get rid of my “beer belly”.
  • Weigh 200 pounds or less.
  • Reduce my waist size from a size 38 to around a size 34 waist size.
  • Reduce my shirt size from 2XL to XL
  • Grow some muscles on my arms and upper body area.

The goal I want to accomplish first is to get reduce my waist size from a size 38 to a size 34.

How do I plan on doing that?

  • Exercising daily.
  • Eating more fruits and vegetables and less sugar and fats.
  • Incorporating more protein into my diet (so I don’t get hungry as much and am not tempted to eat too much).

Once I get rid of my belly fat, I will focus on getting to 200 pounds.

I will share progress on how the first step is going each month.

Please let me know if you have any questions or any ideas on what I need to be doing fitness wise.

Thank You and Have A Nice Day

My Financial Goals

Hey everyone,

I mentioned before that I wanted to do a better job managing my money.

Check out the post regarding that:

https://www.millennialbuddy.com/2017/10/16/goals-for-my-life/

I feel like I’m living paycheck to paycheck.

It seems like the money I get disappears before my eyes.

I have tried managing my money in the past and didn’t stick with it.

To stay on track with managing my money, I have decided to create some goals.

Here they are:

  • Get on a budget and stay on it.
  • Put leftover money on certain expenses into sinking funds (so I can have it when I need it).
  • Save up to go back to college (and get some more education for the job I’m at currently).
  • Have money to do home repairs I want to do.
  • Save up for a new car.

Tomorrow, I will share with you a budget I have created (and see what you think about it).

Share with me your financial goals (or what you think about my financial goals).

Thank You and Have A Nice Day,

Millennial Buddy
