Practical Savings Advice for Money Problems
This morning, while chatting with a girlfriend about her upcoming appointment to meet with a financial advisor, it dawned on me that most people don’t have the knowledge required to make smart investment and money management decisions. Well, that is, unless they’re a complete finance nerd like myself.
My friend proceeded to tell me that she wished she knew more about money matters and what options are available when it comes to investing, saving for retirement, contributing to her children’s college funds, etc. I assured her that it’s pretty easy to trade stocks and mutual funds online and make monetary decisions. She replied by saying, “I couldn’t do it though”. That is totally untrue!
Despite my being a finance nerd, I can understand her reluctance. Finance and savings advice can be confusing and overwhelming. The world of 401Ks, stocks, mutual funds, investments, and savings can seem like a foreign language. However, if you’re willing to learn, I assure you that you can become fluent in finance and savings advice. You may even surprise yourself at how good you can be at it.
My friend is a smart girl with tons of skills but finance was not her chosen field hence her desire to speak with a professional. There’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, as a former financial professional, I highly recommend it if you truly believe you lack the skills and confidence to execute monetary decisions. However, if you are the “hands on” type and want to learn about money management as well as take control of your finances than you’ll want to listen up for some savings advice.
I have decided to offer my services to you FREE OF CHARGE! That’s right, ask me your financial questions and present me with your money problems and I will address the most popular ones here on the blog. Please keep in mind that I am no longer a licensed investment adviser so the information I provide is strictly that – informational.
Of course, I don’t have all the answers, but I will research what I don’t know in order to help you be as informed as possible. With that said, what money questions have been weighing on your mind? Have you been wanting to save for your child’s college but don’t know where to start? Would you like to start investing but have no idea how? Are you facing money problems? Do you want to know what exactly a mutual fund is?
Why would I offer this free financial and savings advice? Simply put, I love helping people save money and empower themselves to make smart financial decisions.
So what are you waiting for? Ask away.
I am not acting as a financial professional. The information provided should not be considered personal or professional investment advice; these are merely my opinions. You should conduct your own due diligence and/or consult with a licensed professional before making any financial decisions.
