Healthy, Wealthy & Wise for 2024!

Whatever your goals for 2024 are (and whether you call them resolutions or not), ECL can help! 

We’ve put together a special issue of the Healthy, Wealthy & Wise Newsletter with some great resources. 

Elgin Reads is our no-commitment digital book club. We pick a book each month, you can choose to read it or not, and then head over to the Elgin Reads Facebook Group for a chat about it near the end of the month. You can respond to 1 discussion question, all of them, or none of them. 

The 4% Fix: How One Hour Can Change Your Life by Karma Brown

In The 4% Fix, Karma Brown reveals the latest research about time management and goal-setting and shares strategies that have worked for her as well as for others. Refreshingly, her jargon-free approach doesn’t include time-tracking spreadsheets, tips on how to squeeze in yoga exercises while cooking dinner, or methods that add bulk to those never-ending lists.

How will you use this one hour—only 4% of your day—to change your life?
