Fox Business Network host Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery covers everything from breaking news to the latest trends each night on her program ‘Kennedy.’ This year, Kennedy will be ringing in 2019 by co-hosting FOX News Channel’s live “All-American New Year” special in Times Square starting at 8 PM/ET. We caught up with Kennedy before the big night to find out what New Year’s resolutions we should be making for our wallets to help us start 2019 off on the right financial foot.
Here are Kennedy’s 3 suggestions to make sure you start off 2019 on the right financial footing.
1. Stop eating out.
If you’re concerned about supporting the local economy, find a family owned grocery store & shop there. You will save SO much money by making your own food because you get to control the quality, ingredients & portions & you’ll lose a little weight. Get in this habit, really commit to making the bulk of your food, and you’ll be amazed how quickly you start saving money.
2. Get a side hustle.
Whether it’s driving a Lyft on the weekends or massaging people’s cats, find something you’re good at and milk that extra udder. Just in time for the New Year, here are some tips on how to grow a side hustle while keeping your 9-5.
3. Invest in cryptocurrency
People say the bubble burst, I say malarkey. We’ve found the bottom and once people embrace the true beauty of unregulated currency it will blossom once again like a beautiful lotus flower from a muddy pond. Coinbase & other apps make it incredibly easy to get started and you don’t have to invest too much at once. And then you’ll be rich and you can start eating out for every meal!
