Making a New Year’s resolution is a fun way to positively change your life, whether it’s getting organized, losing weight or saving money. But according to research, approximately 80% of resolutions fail by the second week of February.1 Now that April is underway, it’s a good time to assess your progress and think about your game plan moving forward.

If you vowed to get your finances in order in 2017, you’re not alone. In fact, one of the top New Year’s resolutions each year is to spend less and save more.2 While saving money may seem easy at first – as the months go by, you may notice your resolve begins to fade. Here are two tips to stay on track:

  • Reevaluate your approach to saving money. You may find that what worked for someone in the past may not work for you. If you notice you’ve been slipping … get back up and reconsider your approach! Your map toward success should not be set in stone, but rather adjustable according to your circumstances. Resiliency is vital – especially during these first few months!
  • Measuring your progress is paramount. Not only does it serve as a source of motivation, but also it calls for reflection. Seeing how much money you’ve saved over time is a reminder of your hard work and dedication. It also indicates if you’re hitting a peak or falling backward, so that you can adjust your efforts accordingly. Tracking your growth each month will increase your odds of success and not to mention – if you don’t measure your finances, you can’t spot change!

As 2017 unfolds, celebrate your victories, but be compassionate when you slip up. You don’t have to wait for a New Year to start again … tomorrow’s a new day!

There are ways to travel and be frugal at the same time. Here are four:

1) Pick an ‘off-season’ destination: Choosing a vacation destination to go to during its “shoulder” or “off-peak” season has numerous advantages. For starters, the less touristy the spot, the better deals you’ll be offered on everything from airfare to lodging, not to mention it’ll be more secluded when you get there. No matter if you’re trying to get away for a few days or a few weeks, there is a destination out there that is perfect for your trip. Focus on the experience and what you’ll get to do and see that you wouldn’t get to do at peak season.

2) Book competitive travel fares: Understanding peak tourist seasons in different parts of the world is critical to getting good deals. Being flexible with travel dates (and times) also helps. Airfares to Europe are less expensive as the weather gets cooler and some tropical regions get cheaper as the weather heats up. Give yourself some wiggle room with trip details – like possible layovers and flight times. Passing on a direct flight, flying stand-by, or taking a “red-eye” can potentially save you a lot of money. Have a few hours before a connecting flight? Get out of the airport and go explore the city. Just don’t forget your boarding pass!

3) Consider alternative accommodations: Whether you stay in a hostel, rent private property, stay with friends or try your luck trading dwellings with a stranger, there are many less expensive alternatives to staying at your run-of-the-mill hotel. Most hostels have private rooms (even for couples) and can save you hundreds of dollars when compared to the alternative, not to mention all the great people you could meet on your trip. Where you stay is part of the overall adventure, so why not make it memorable?

4) Don’t pay too much to eat and drink: The expression, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do,” is cliché because of its universal application. When it comes to cuisine you’ll get the most out of the culture you’re experiencing if you shop where the locals shop and dine where the locals dine. Spending the day museum hopping? Go to the neighborhood grocery, fill up a picnic basket with popular deli items and find a nice spot to enjoy the meal and people-watch. Spending the night on the town? Scour the Internet for area dining reviews to find out where the locals eat.

At Primerica, field representatives have the support of a skilled and committed Home Office team of more than 1,700 employees who are dedicated to helping more Main Street families become financially independent every day.

They work in executive leadership, marketing, communications, technology, life operations, legal and compliance, and training and development — areas where they are totally focused on serving the needs of the sales force, and they love their jobs!

So, why is it so great to be a Primerican? Here’s what one Home Office employee had to say:

Meet Bryan …

Bryan Haire, an administrator in the Field Supervision Department, loves working at Primerica.

“Primerica provides me the opportunity to work alongside some amazing individuals,” says Haire. Moreover, Primerica’s unique structure allows the home office teams to be actively involved with the field force, says Haire.

“Although we are located in Duluth, Georgia, we reach Main Street families all across the United States and Canada by assisting our hard working representatives in the field,” he says. “Primerica understands our core demographics’ needs. Therefore, as a company we provide a variety of low cost products and services that families need, but we also provide a business opportunity for individuals to build a legacy for their families.”

Haire calls Primerica “Main Street at heart,” saying the company maintains “a high standard of integrity and honesty.” He adds, “At the Home Office or in the field, Primerica believes in doing things right way because it is right. From the CEO to the cleaning crew, from the Senior National Sales Director to the newest Primerica recruit, the commitment to excellence doesn’t change.”

Haire has worked for Primerica since 2006.
