How to Get Out of A Financial Groundhog Day

Community Manager


Groundhog Day is a day in February where people watch to see if a groundhog casts a shadow. As the tradition goes, if the groundhog goes back into its den, winter will continue for six more weeks. If there is no shadow, spring will arrive early.  This tradition has spawned disappointment at elongated winters, excitement for spring, and a timeless Bill Murray movie, where his character keeps reliving the same day over and over. 


It's also about this time of year that many of us can experience our own personal Groundhog Days. It's not uncommon to fall into financial ruts that can all too easily define our year. We are here to help!
