How to Make Sure You are Financially Healthy

After all the holiday festivities going on, especially all the EATING during this season, I was joking with friends about keeping a healthy balance with diet and exercise so they don't have "get back in shape" topping another list New Year's resolutions.

Then someone had to ask a question about being "Money Smart" in their financial decisions and thus, inspired this blog post.

I pulled a TV segment done earlier in the year that helps address this area...in addition a viewer had a question that was asking what to do with them getting a large tax refund. (Which is not very Money Smart giving Uncle Sam an overpayment of taxes throughout the year!)

Here's what Gel Santos Relos asked me:

1. What does it mean to be financially fit?

2. What are signs and symptoms of being financially fit, or not?

3. What are some of the things we can do to make your financial health improve?

Remember, getting real with yourself and attacking one issue at a time will help you can greater clarity and confidence, regardless of what economy we are in.
