Yes, I realize it’s early but not that early! New Year’s is six weeks away and I am trying to wrap my head around that one. Wasn’t it just summer? Didn’t we JUST have our annual New Year’s Eve bash with our best buds only weeks ago? Well.. no. It was six weeks under a YEAR ago!? I’m not sure I ever used make them, or make them and keep them, because it seems so wide and untethered to me. It’s almost like it’s something I can’t quite touch. I like to believe I always meet life goals head-on. I want to be active consistently, and I nearly pulled that off for a full two years. (summer’s humidity gets me)
One thing I love is to make specific goals – smaller resolutions. Do I stick to them? You bet I do! It’s not easy, but I’m an all or nothing person. When my mind is set, I want to soar. There are different parts of my life, and when it comes to finances, that’s where I really want to make improvements! I love to make small resolutions – but with the big picture fully in focus.
This year I resolve, as I always do, to eat more fruits and vegetables, drink more water, connect better with my loved ones, AND, for the drumroll – handle my 401K like a real champ! How do I plan to do that? Well I just found out about Blooom. Are you familiar with them? They are a low cost ($10 per month) financial advice solution that leverages technology to manage people’s 401k’s – lowering the barrier to financial advice. Blooom is simple, smart, affordable help for your 401K.
Blooom says they can give peace of mind when it comes to your 401K. Without worrying about your 401K, what would you do with that time? For me, I would spend time reading, running, going out to eat, taking pictures, and all around spending time with my kids for hours on end.
Blooom is a start-up right out of Kansas City by retirement experts who were tired of managing money for millionaires. They believe everyone deserves the right to retire. And at only $10 a month, it’s less expensive than hiring a financial planner. It was founded on the belief that professional 401K help should be smart, simple and available to all Americans.
