Financial Expert and best-selling author of Smart Money Smart Kids Rachel Cruze joins us to discuss how to set and stick to financial goals this New Year. Here's how Cruze says you can make financial goals:

  1. Make a written budget (make budgeting a priority, spend every dollar on paper before the month begins, give yourself 90 days to get it right)
  2. Build an emergency fund (start with $1,000, Increase to 3-6 months of expenses once debt free, sell stuff you don't need, get a second job or work extra hours, look at your budget and see where you can cut)
  3. Live within your means (If you can't pay cash--don't buy it, It's not worth going into debt for the latest 'it' item)
  4. Make paying off debt a priority (Cut up and close any credit cards you still use, Use the debt snowball to pay off debt, List your debts from smallest to largest and pay off in that order)
