Money Accountability Pal = A pal you confide in regularly about a current money goal (like paying off debt for example).
Your MAP is somebody who will cheer you on and support you. Someone you could check in with regularly to report your progress. This may even be someone you can ask for advice (someone who has been in your shoes possibly?). Someone who’s honesty you won’t take personally. Mostly, this is someone to communicate with about a money goal, which experts suggest, helps you stay on track and makes you more likely to succeed.
Let me tell you, I LOVE this idea! Here’s why:
I invite you to consider talking to a MAP regularly about your progress towards you money goals. It could be your spouse, your mom, your child, etc. Regularly checking in on our financial goals can help us stay on track and ride the ups and downs with more peace of mind.
