Money Matters: New Year, New Opportunities!

January 7, 2022

Hello,

Happy New Year!

We're all too familiar with making New Year's resolutions - many of which fall by the wayside even before the end of January. And despite loads of research and scientific studies about the psychology of how to keep resolutions, most of us are still much better at making them than we are at keeping them.

How about you? What's the longest you've kept a resolution? I'd love to hear what worked for you.

This week I couldn't resist sending this Forbes article about a great strategy for getting difficult tasks done. It's called "eating the frog," and it can work for your to-do list today as well as your long-term financial strategy. How? Read more about it below.

Speaking of long-term financial strategies, I believe wise investments in our local communities are always a smart strategy. For many years, the Malvern Foundation's clear mission has been to support those charities and/or organizations within our communities that contribute to the betterment of its citizens and to create a strong social safety net. I encourage you to support the Foundation and learn more about its important work by reading a letter I sent to Foundation supporters at the end of 2021. You can read the letter by clicking here.

Regardless of how your resolutions hold up this year, know that I'm just a message or phone call away from putting you in pursuit of all your big goals - even the ones that may seem too difficult right now. It's so much easier when you have a partner in your corner.

So, here's that Forbes article along with a few others to help inspire you this week. Let me know how it's going!

Sincerely,

Anthony C. Weagley
