    • church? non-profit organization? people?
  2. How much do I want to SAVE? and for what?
    • emergency fund? vehicle replacement? KUE? vacation?
  3. How much do I want to INVEST? and for what?
    • college? retirement? a dream?
  4. How much DEBT do I want to pay off? and which ones?
    • car? student loan? credit card? furniture? a person?
  5. What do I want to LEARN about?

Set a clear goal that you can measure and strive to attain. You won’t regret it.
