Congratulations, on taking the steps to get control of your finances! However, any good financial plan must involve continued monitoring, periodic review, and occasional re-evaluation. Mistakes happen, circumstance change, and your needs will vary at different times in your life.

Yourself a few questions:

  • Are all my expenses accounted for?
  • Are my figures correct?
  • Is my income correct?
  • Is my plan based on ACTUAL numbers not on PROJECTED numbers?
  • Did I calculate everything correctly?
  • I’m I actually sticking to the plan?

I recommend that you review your plan monthly. If it is working, then a quarterly review should be sufficient to keep you on track. However, if there are any major changes to your financial life, you will need to re-evaluate your plan and possibly change it.

Keep it up and Enjoy knowing that you have taken the steps to financial freedom!
