It’s Not Just Your Kids Who Need Help

We have written a few articles recently about parents trying to help their children become financially responsible adults. We’ve talked about young kids, high school-age kids, even young adults. And although many parents are vigilant about their kids’ financial future simply because they love them and want them to be successful, deep down we all know that a few decades down the road, the tides will turn, and it will be those same kids who will be charged with protecting our well-being [...]

Mistakes All 25-Year-Olds Must Avoid

A few weeks ago, I met with a couple of clients of mine that I have worked with for a number of years now. I will call them Bob and June.

And although it's probably safest for me to "outsource" home projects, I have completed a few on my own. I can't even tell you how many times measuring twice has saved me from disaster. [...]

Newton's First Law of Finance

In this blog, let’s look at Newton’s First Law. Here’s how we all remember the original: An object at rest tends to stay at rest, and an object in motion tends to stay in motion, unless acted on by an outside force. Here’s my version: A financial plan at rest tends to stay at rest, while a financial plan in motion tends to stay in motion, unless acted on by an outside force. [...]
