I hope all of you had a happy holiday with your families! I know I enjoyed going home for a few days. I left my computer behind, for a much welcomed break. Now I am back and eager to start planning my goals for 2016. Have you been thinking up any New Year’s Resolutions yet?

I have been thinking hard about how to narrow down my goal’s for the next year. Most of them revolve around the dream of becoming financially independent. I love to travel, explore new places and try new things, something that is hard to do when tied to one place because of a job. My dream is to create a source of income that allows me the flexibility and time to try new things and travel new places. A dream that would allow me to keep learning knew things, like how to milk a cow, and allow me time to nanny in England.
Every trek deserves a bit of planning, which brings me to my goals for 2016:
- Create multiple sources of income. Someday I would love to work from home. I know this is my “I wish to be a mommy” brain talking, but it makes sense. Why not create an online source of income before I have anyone else to take care of? That way I will have more time to focus on my family, when the time comes.
- Payoff $10,000 of my student loans. This will not be easy goal to achieve, especially since my current income is less that $1,000 a month. Paying off $10,000 in one year means at least $834 a month will go towards loans. However, paying of my loans quickly will free up more money for me to save and invest in the future.
My motivation this year is for my future family. I may not even be close to being married, and there are no glimpses of children on the horizon, but I everything I do now is to prepare for life with them. What is your dream for the future? What steps can you take today, or this year to make them come true?
