It’s the beginning of the year and everyone is starting their New Years Resolutions. Unfortunately, a lot of people are focusing on elements that are a bit unobtainable. From losing 20 pounds in a week to becoming a millionaire, I don’t see a lot of thought behind creating realistic goals.
As a freelancer writer, it’s unlikely that you’ll receive a Christmas bonus. Depending on your flow of work, you may also find it difficult to save for some of the more pressing expenses for the home. However, you could start saving for Christmas 2018 by using systems like Stash.
Most freelance professionals need to keep an extra close eye on finances. It can be easy to forget that you need to pay taxes once per year, especially since most clients only offer 1099s and don’t file employee taxes on you. Using Stash Invest might have some potential for managing those expenses.
