Let’s talk finances...If you get a little squeamish when the topic of money comes up then maybe you haven’t carved out the necessary time to get your finances taken care of. No matter how much you earn, it’s important to have a plan for how you’re going to budget, spend, save and invest your finances. Not only is it important if you plan to purchase a home one day, but it’s important for your future and the future of your family/and or your legacy.
There are huge advantages to working with professionals who can help you allocate your money wisely. Now we know that saving money and living on a budget doesn’t sound like any fun but when you do the work early in life, the fun can follow! If you don’t want to be caught in the “someday” trap, you know, one where you dream of what you might do, maybe in retirement, or after you win the lottery or “someday” when you have money, then sorting this out sooner, rather than later, is your best bet.
Research your financial planners and advisors like you would anyone else you’re hiring for a job. Get to know them, ask questions about the type of client they work best with, make sure they provide the type of money management solutions you’re most comfortable with and that they communicate on a level you’re comfortable with. We’ve put together a list of potential prospects for you to get started with.
