Happy New Year!

The turn of the calendar year can be an exciting time and certainly provide a “fresh start” for many of our personal and business ventures. It is no surprise that many people celebrate the new year by committing to resolutions designed to make some life improvement.

Many resolutions such as losing weight, committing to an exercise program, saving more money, etc., can be difficult and often don’t make it to March. We would like to offer some easier alternatives that can have a tremendous impact on your life.

1. Resolve to Get a Last Will and Testament. You probably worry about your lack of a Will every time you board an airplane. Remove that anxiety by making 2018 the year you finally get a Will. It’s easier than you may think.

2. Run a Free Credit Report. Protect your financial integrity by running a truly free credit report. Avoid the sites advertised on TV and go to www.annualcreditreport.com.

3. Conduct an Insurance Review. Make sure you are adequately insuring your home, your car, and even your life. Life insurance can be incredibly valuable for your family. However, you want to apply for it while you are in good health; otherwise, it may be unavailable or too cost prohibitive.

4. Protect Against Theft. Take pictures of the items in your home, make copies of the contents of your wallet, and be sure to have a password on all your technology devices.

We would be happy to help you with that first resolution! Email us (george@carneydye.com) or give us a call at (205) 802-0696.
