The concept of investing and talking financial advisors has been on my head for awhile. So a long with a few other changes occuring over the new year, there's a lot I want to plan for, but I need to set the time to make sure all my goals are practical. The ultimate goal over the next few years is to save as much money and develop several sources of positive income (im in economics mode at the moment) in order to make my goals tangible in shaa Allah (God willing). It's a bit hard striving for balance, because you don't want the pursuit of money or materialism to consume you, so I hope all the best. I also just finished applying for several jobs...I hope there's some response.
