It is the time of year families will be ringing in the New Year! We may be thinking out loud, where did the year go? 2017 is nearly over and our family didn’t get several things one we had hoped to. Regretting will not bring time back. We can; however, make the best of the time we have left in the remaining days of December.

Set Goals—With your family decide what needs to done. Is it making an appointment with your tax advisor or accountant to do some year-end financial planning? Or is it updating your medical insurance coverage to meet your family’s current needs? For other families it may be finishing holiday shopping by December 15.
