Happy New Year! This first week of the year we've set resolutions, broken them or resolved not to set any. Regardless of where you stand there is one goal for 2012 that we should try to stick to: financial wellness.
As African Americans we're familiar with the term tithing, which means setting aside 10% of your bi-weekly salary for church. Not only is it a great way to give back, it's sure to jumpstart the wellness plan. Another great idea is to set up a savings plan with your employer.
Most importantly, stay within your means when making purchases. Not only does it make reaching financial wellness easier, it eases unecessary stress.
