Introduction to Saving for Short, Mid and Long-Term Goals

Setting goals is one of the best ways to take financial responsibility in your life. By taking the time to consider your life goals and how much savings it will take to reach those goals, you are taking a positive step toward ultimately realizing them. Without goals, you don’t know where you’re going and then you can’t get there. Even if you have goals, if you don’t create a plan to meet those goals financially, it is unlikely those goals will ever be realized.
