With our LearnVest Call to Action, we pose a question about life and money and ask readers to respond by sharing their experiences.
Readers are entered for a chance to win $100 to put toward their financial goals and may be featured on the site.
This month, we want to know: What is the hardest money goal you gave yourself, and what did you do to follow through and reach the finish line?
Maybe you had to pinch some serious pennies in order to purchase your first home. Or maybe your New Year’s resolution was to pay down your student loans by the end of the year and, with the help of some careful budgeting, you’re on track to repay Sallie Mae come December. Or perhaps you wanted to max out your 401(k) contributions—and for the first time last year, reached the limit by allocating a percentage of your raise to retirement.
Whatever goal you set for yourself, we would love to know what it was and how you managed to achieve it. Comment below, and you’ll be entered for a chance to win $100! Be sure to use your email address when you comment—it won’t be visible to others—so we can notify you should you win.
Open only to legal residents of the 50 states and the District of Columbia who are at least 18 years old as of the date of entry. Premium users are not eligible. Contest running from July 12, 2016 to July 29, 2016. Finalists must be willing to share their name and a photo to be eligible for consideration. We will select the most compelling entry as the winner, and his or her story may be published on the site.
