Financial Goals

Below are the seven financial goals that my wife and I have.  We believe that financial goals are important to establish and follow as it gives you something to aim for.  I made a full length post describing in detail our goals.  A big part of this blog will be showing our progress in these goals.

1.)   Stay out of Consumer Debt

2.)   Invest 15% of our income into retirement accounts

3.)   Pay off the mortgage ASAP

4.)   Stick to a zero based monthly budget

5.)   Have my wife stay at home with the children full time

6.)   Continually increase our giving

7.)   Start my own business
