What’s the Point?

My mission for Current Financial Concepts is to help people improve their financial situation and to have a real plan for their financial future. I blog constantly about financial topics. It seems as though I’m all about money. The reality though, is that money is not at all what this is about.

It’s Christmas time. It’s a time to reflect on things that are bigger than ourselves and bigger than just our money. Sure, it’s nice to be able to buy nice gifts for people, but the reality is, the thing that most people appreciate about Christmas is the time with family and friends. It’s a time to get together and just enjoy each other’s company and to do things for each other.

THAT is what my real goal is. I want to help you create a plan that will help you not have to focus on money. By spending some time focusing intensely on your finances and creating a plan, it will help you reach a position where you no longer have to worry about money. Money is not everything. It’s nice to have, but there are much more important things in your life. I want to help you create a plan that will let you focus on those things and move the subject of your finances down your list of priorities.

This Christmas, push aside all of those thoughts of what you’ve spent, or about the bills that area piling up, or the job hunt you need to be pursuing. Enjoy the important things in life like your health, your family, your warm home, and your friends. That’s the real point. Those other things will be waiting for you on the other side. We’ll get to work on them then.
