Sometimes the best laid financial and life plans don’t, well, go to plan. I found myself nearly two years ago suddenly single raising two kids. Nor am I alone. I had a coffee/chai chat with one of my good friends who had just made it through her first year post separation to find out how it had changed her financial situation – and perspective. What she had to say really resonated with me, so with her permission I am sharing.
Looking back on 2015, it was a fairly significant year for me in more ways than one. And I achieved one financial goal I set out to achieve – putting aside at least 10% of my income into investment. So this year I am going to aim for something even bigger: to pay off the mortgage on my residential property (i.e. my home).
