Merry New Year

The line “Merry New Year” from the classic film “Trading Place” never gets old for me. Once a year I get to share it with family and friends on social media and we all have a good laugh. If you’ve never seen the movie, I’d suggest you make it one of your goals for 2016. It’s a great comedy and secondarily a pretty good business/finance movie too. If you never saw the clip I’m refereeing to check it our below.

If you have seen the movie Trading Places check out one of the stars Dan Aykroyd explain a little bit more about the movie and it’s ending. If you have not seen the movie and plan too I’d skip this clip.

The Time is Now

It’s that time to start looking ahead to the New Year and planning and as Even Steven reminds us, take a moment to reflect on 2015, bask in the accomplishments and failures and use them going forward. So no matter what’s on your 2016 “to do” list:

  • Become debt free
  • Lose weight
  • Start a Side hustle
  • Save more
  • Find a new job
  • Start investing
  • Donate your time
  • Start a business
  • Increase you income
  • Volunteer
  • Cut expenses
  • Spend more time with loved ones

I want to wish you the best of luck and the happiest and healthiest of New Years!

  1. My son likes to say “Happy Christmas!” I haven’t decided on a resolution really – we didn’t make our lofty savings goal last year, but we came close, and I’ll likely set it the same again – just to have something to really reach for. But it was a great year to look back on – we are ahead of where we were last Jan 1st – so I am happy!

  2. Happy New Year to you too…or should I say, “Merry” New Year! This is such a great time of year, a time to clean slate and start anew with inspirational and positive goals.

    Trading Places is indeed a really good movie, totally agree. It’s been probably 10 years since I last saw it, but there are some lines and scenes I still remember.

  3. Happy New Year! Looking forward to the changes the new year will bring!

    As an aside, ‘Trading Places’ is one of my favorite movies so I enjoyed that tie-in for sure!
