Welcome 2020 with a plan to save

What tops your list of goals for 2020? For many people, it’s taking steps to spend less – or at least save more.

Like any goal (notice we’re avoiding that “resolution” word) success begins with a plan, and one that’s consistent and realistic. After all, you’re unlikely to save your first million in a year, no matter how hard you try!

The road to success

It’s always a good idea to begin with a budget that includes your income, expenses and financial goals. With those basics in hand, it’s easier to create the roadmap to your ultimate destination.

1. Be specific – For example, do you want to pay off your credit cards? Maybe build a $1,000 cushion in your savings account?

2. Make goals achievable – Ensure your goals are not too broad (refer to step 1) and that you have the right supports in place to help you reach them.

3. Be realistic – Like any life change, a plan that’s too strict might not stick. Like a successful healthy eating plan allows for the occasional piece of pizza, it’s important your financial plan also includes room for a little fun, whether that’s a night out at the movies or your favourite gym class.

4. Consider accountability – How will you measure your success through the year?

5. Add a deadline! Procrastination can kill the best intentions, so when it comes to your financial goals, be sure to add a timeline to guide you and chart your progress.

When financial roadblocks arise

So, well-planned roadmap in hand, the way is clear for financial success, right?

The fact is, we all know that the smoothest roads are sometimes marred with a bump or two. Unexpected bills come up or circumstances arise that put a hold on your plans, or even set you back a little.

When the unplanned happens, a short-term, online loan can be the key to getting back on track.

Why online?

Thanks to today’s technology, this innovative alternative to traditional brick-and-mortar lenders makes borrowing both easy and quick, and with state-of-the-art encryption, clients rest assured that their private information is safe, explains Sundeep Thind, manager of’s Surrey office.
