2012 Financial Goals

Family Balance Sheet

We talked through some issues and opportunities for our business and our personal, family, and financial goals. We are still working through some numbers and there might be some adjustments in the timelines we have given ourselves, but these are our financial priorities for 2012. Our 2012 Financial Goals. We have set a goal date of July 2015 to pay off all of our debt. Save for a Walt Disney World Vacation. These goals are epic for us.

My Life Plan

Family Balance Sheet

A few years ago, we were struggling financially and I felt like our situation was hopeless. The plan allowed us to think beyond the financial struggles we were dealing with at the time and we could envision what our future might look like.

We're Saving for Disney and We Need Your Advice

Family Balance Sheet

I have never been to Walt Disney World and neither has my husband. To be honest, the two of us were never interested in a Walt Disney World vacation. So, we're Saving for Disney! It is one of our 2012 Financial Goals and I am starting to research it. From what we hear, a Disney vacation is not a vacation that you can just book and hope for the best when you get there.

How Angela & Jeff paid off $58,000 of Debt in 2 Years

Family Balance Sheet

Coming home from a trip to Disney World was what started it all. We had tried other methods in the past, but found this one suited us best since it forced us to focus on one goal at a time, rather than trying to do it all (pay off debt and contribute to savings and retirement). If married, who initiated the debt free goal? I was the one that approached Jeff with the debt free goal after doing some research online. What are your financial goals now?

Meet Tracy, a Single Mom Who Paid Off $41,587 | Debt Free Stories

Family Balance Sheet

The debt included overdraft protection, mattress, car, and a credit card (post divorce stress spending, clothes to accommodate the yo yo diets and weight for 2 years, a trip to Disney World & I’m sure several things that I don’t remember because I was spending without a plan). I had enjoyed a great salary working in Pharma and been far too irresponsible with what God had blessed me with to provide financially. Who initiated the debt free goal?
