Did you know that a lot of people spend more time planning their vacation than taking the time to plan their financial future, or even look at their personal finances? It’s sad, but it’s the truth. I found myself in the past few months spending literally hours on priceline.com trying to plan my vacations. I think it’s pretty important that everyone set aside some time each month or quarter and assess their financial situation. You should ask yourself: Are you spending too much on beer each month? Are you on target towards buying your dream car? Or simply, what are you doing to improve your financial situation? So next time when you’re getting ready to plan your next exotic vacation, put your accountant hat on.
