MONEY HACKS: Regaining Financial Focus



Welcome back to Money Hacks! This unintended hiatus has made me realize how easily we, including myself, can stray from our objectives and goals in the hustle and bustle of daily life. It can occur particularly when we are heavily engrossed in tasks, projects, or even a vacation! I want this episode to serve as your reminder that, while it’s completely normal to lose focus, it’s equally possible to regain control.

In this episode of Money Hacks, I’ve discussed how the same principle applies to our personal cash flow and spending plans. As we resume our exploration toward financial goals, I am reaffirming my commitment to remain disciplined and focused. So, consider today’s episode as a call to action, emphasizing the crucial role of discipline and commitment in achieving our financial objectives.

Video Transcript:

Hey, this is Alex Assaley. It’s episode number 106 of Money Hacks. It’s been a little while since we’ve done one of these videos, and while I’d like to be able to tell you that I was on sabbatical or hiatus over the summer, in fact, we were just really working on a number of projects for clients, one on one coaching sessions, and fell out of the habit of getting these videos put together every couple of weeks, and I think it’s a great reminder of how easy it is for us to lose track with our cash flow plan, with our spending plan. You know, we set these intentions at the beginning of the year or at the beginning of a period of time to try to improve our financial picture to manage, our spending and budget every single month.

And then maybe after a couple of weeks of vacation or a period when it’s a little nicer out and we’re out and about doing more, maybe spending a little more, we get off track. And sometimes we can get off track to the extent that we just fall into perhaps some bad habits. We lose that behavior really quickly and all of a sudden now summer’s come to an end, and we realize that our budget is maybe not as tight as it was a couple of months ago.

That’s okay. It can happen in every sort of facet of life as we’re now back unofficially into the fall. It’s important to review, reassess, and identify the top financial goals, and priorities that we have here for the last part of the year.

Try to get that cash flow spending plan back in line so we can make good decisions to work towards your financial goals. I think the message of this video really is that on a daily, weekly, monthly, and annual basis, we know that you have a number of priorities in your life, a number of achievements and milestones you want to fulfill, and sometimes it’s tough to stay to the cashflow plan that you’ve set. If you need some help getting back on track, if you have some questions, if you are looking for somebody to work as your advocate to help you stay accountable, please feel free to use our team, and our resources so that you can make the most of your everyday spending through the last part of 2023 and beyond.
