“I know a lot about money, but it’s more about discipline and when you put a goal in place — a goal is something you really really set out to achieve,” Green said.
Using her “S.M.A.R.T.” steps, Green said the important component of achieving your goals is having a plan in place. “That goal and that plan needs to be S.M.A.R.T…it needs to be specific, it needs to be measurable, it needs to be attainable, realistic and timely,” said Green.
How can we be more intentional about achieving our goals? Green shared that we often focus on our end goals but forget about the in-between steps towards a successful financial future.
“My second tip is just create a budget, or readjust your budget for the year. Looking at really how much are you bringing in, what is your net income and then what are your liabilities? And don’t forget and underestimate the importance of miscellaneous,” said Green.
