Our Best Selves in the Coming Year

We’re nearing the end of 2015, and it’s time to announce our end-of-year series: “Our Best Selves in the Coming Year.” As January approaches once more, we tend to look ahead and imagine a version of ourselves that we hope will exist this time next year — whether it’s someone who has finally opened that IRA or someone who’s become better at using up all her vacation days rather than forfeiting them because they don’t rollover. Or maybe our best self next year is simply someone who can stop feeling anxious about money all the time and start celebrating the things that we’re doing right. We’ll find out!

This series will feature contributions by the Billfold staff (Mike, Ester, and Nicole), as well as by some of our regular contributors, including Josh Michtom, Megan Reynolds, and Romie Stott. Those of you who’ve been with us since the very beginning will be delighted to see a piece by Logan. And, of course, we’d love to hear about the best version of yourself that you’re hoping to see next year. Share it with us in the response sections, or email us: notes@thebillfold.com
