Focus on Finances February 2019

Focus on Finances

By Jason Reeves

Click aqui para español- >Enfóquese en sus finanzas

Did you make a 2019 resolution to get your finances in order? If so, here are 5 to-dos to help you get the results you want:

  1. Start with a purpose. Really take the time to understand “why” you’re doing what you’re doing. Why is it important to you?
  2. Write down your goals and look at them every day. It typically takes 21 days to form a new habit (or break an old one) and this daily reminder will help you stay focused.
  3. Put together a monthly budget. This will show you where your money is going and who it is going to while allowing you to plan for what’s to come.
  4. Do not go further into debt. It’s ok to start where you are, just remember that in order to move forward, you have to commit to not going backwards. 5. Be intentional with every financial decision you make. Wealth is not built overnight, rather, one good decision at a time! Would you like to put together a personalized plan?

Publisher's Note

There is an idea that most Latino immigrants who come here lack education, and thus are bound to perform jobs that require more physical abilities than intellectual ones.

The laborers usually receive a negative stigma, even though the United States society requires these types of jobs to function properly. It is important to us to remember there is dignity in any job. 

In our Líders section, we feature Mari Alejos-Puente, an entrepreneur who is succeeding in the cosmetics’ industry. She graduated from Tulane University and Xavier University and she told me how her mother and her grandmother  were part of the cleaning crews at these institutions, respectively, and how proud they were to see her obtain her undergrad and master degrees.

It is a beautiful thing when you know ladies like this mother and grandmother work hard to give a better life to their children. I wanted to mention this as a side note, because it is important to highlight their efforts, just as much as the effort of the highly skilled professionals we are featuring in our cover story.

In our cover we feature three Latin American physicians who are giving individuals a second chance in life with through their commitment and work at the Ochsner Transplant Institute.

Let his note be a reminder that Latinos, in every field, are providing their skills, talent, and sacrifices every day to make the United States a culturally and economically stronger society.
