Financial success requires that you understand yourself and your priorities — and stick with what's most important.
Anyone who knows me is aware that I am all about the financial priorities. Even though I can get a little judgmental at times, the bottom line is that I truly believe that you need to do what works for you. And spend your money on the things that are most important to you.
Unfortunately, even when you recognize your financial priorities, it can be a little hard to keep on track. That's where an app like Mindbloom can help.
What is Mindbloom?
Mindbloom is an app that helps you build your life around your desired goals. What kind of life do you want to lead? Mindbloom works toward helping you get there, by allowing you to set goals and priorities in different categories.
While categories like spirituality, relationships, and health can encourage you to improve your overall quality of life, you can also set goals and develop an action plan to improve your finances and your career.
Mindbloom helps you set up a plan to improve your situation. You can add actions that will help you achieve your goals, as well as look for inspiration related to your goals. You can even add inspirational quotes of your own as you find things that inspire you.
Once you have an action plan in place, Mindbloom reminds you to take action and work toward milestones, whether you want to travel more, or whether you are trying to get out of debt, or whether you want to develop a marketable skill that advances your career. You can personalize your inspirational images and quotes, so that when you are feeling discouraged, you can visit Mindbloom and find a little more inspiration for what's next.
Would You Use Mindbloom?
I'm not a big one for organizational apps. I use a weight loss/calorie app to help me reach my physical goals, but my financial goals are pretty simple and straightforward. I set aside money for retirement, I pay my bills, I save for emergencies. If I have a trip coming up, I plan for that. Most of it is automatic.
With all of that out of the way, my husband and I pretty much just spend our money on what we like doing.
While I probably won't get really into using Mindbloom, I know that a lot of people really enjoy those sorts of apps. Mindbloom is easy to use, and it helps you get a handle on the lifestyle that you want for yourself by helping you create a plan to achieve your goals.
If you are looking for a way to get a little more organized, and if you are looking for a place to help you get started (and hold you accountable for what you are doing with your life and your finances), Mindbloom can be a great tool. You can use Mindbloom online, or get the app for your Apple mobile device and get the reminders and inspiration you need no matter where you are.
