It’s 6-months into the year. Do you know where your finances are? Well, we declared our positive affirmations and #FinGoals for 2018 on PB80: It’s Never Too Late to Get Started. For your benefit and ours, we’re going back to the future with a much needed Mid-Year Resolutions revelation to see where we have been winning, slipping, and where we need to make some in game adjustments (unlike Tyronn Lue!) to get back on track. On this episode, we’ll discuss the art of the win and how you too can set yourself up for the mid-year come back or maintain your wins into the second-half of the year. It’s never too late to get on track. If you haven’t set your personal & financial goals for the year, there’s no time like the present. Let’s get it!
