August Goals

2019

It’s August, the most special time of the year! When I was younger, I was always Jonesing to go back to school shopping and to celebrate my birthday. My mom made a really big deal out of both since I was an only child so August was usually full of magic. Now that I’m older, I have friends who partake in birthday month shenanigans with me and this is the first year in awhile I don’t have to buy school supplies. Huzzah!

Along with H coming out for a visit, I have tons of birthday month plans. A girls night, Suicide Squad viewing with friends and a Guns & Roses concert, my birthday month is gonna be off the hook! I still have goals though gotta stay motivated and take care of business during the work week. 😉

  • Lay out a business plan for Money Smart Latina for the rest of the year. After finishing my bachelors degree, getting a promotion at work and taking some time off, I’ve decided it’s time to focus on Money Smart Latina. I have tons of great ideas that I would like to see come into fruition and I am the only one holding myself back. My goal is to really get a handle on everything by the time I attend FinCon. Anyone else attending?
  • Take care of myself. I really under estimate how much rest I need and crash out on the weekends. Along with chronic asthma and BPD which is quite exhausting, I also suffer from a chronic pain condition in my back. Along with getting rest, I need to see my primary doctor to get refills, eat plenty of fresh veggies and fruits, take my supplements and take time to actually decompress.
  • Finish funding my emergency fund. I’m half way to my emergency fund getting topped off before I work on some other financial goals and I really hope I can do it this month. I was a little spendy this past weekend but I need to reign it in.

That’s it. I’m being super social this month so I don’t want to put too much on my plate. Bonus goal would be to declutter half my apartment since I feel like I have too much stuff again. I haven’t done a deep cleaning since last summer so that would be nice but I will be spending a lot of time with one of my clients so we will see what I have time for.

What do you have planner for this month?

    A Guns and Roses concert? Now, that sounds fun. I hope you have a great birthday month!

  2. Happy birthday month! Sounds like three solid goals. And I’m with you on the decluttering. It never ends. But I’m hoping to make this the year that is actually does end.

    • This week I spent a fair amount of time cleaning but alas, no decluttering. Maybe I should break it down to 10 or 20 minutes per day? That might work better actually!
