2FD 015: You Need an Accountability Partner

So you have goals, but do you have someone to talk about with them?

Having an accountability partner is important to turn your words into actions and also to share ideas and success with. Knowing you don’t want to let someone down can be enough motivation to kickstart your savings.

A great accountability partner may be your significant other. However, sometimes they aren’t always on board so you need to show them your plan and motivations why doing this as a team can allow more life experiences together with less financial burden. CHA-CHING!
