Historically speaking, no other single type of investment can compete with the returns of stock investing. Even factoring in all the market crashes, adjustments, recessions, etc. Buying, & holding stocks over the long term is the surest route to wealth creation available to the public.
Let’s talk more about this type of investment for you, send us a DM to get started. 📷 by @dpmoo
When you borrow money from a bank or other lending institution, regardless of what it’s for, it will be either a “secured loan” or an “unsecured loan”. The difference between how each type of loan works can have a big impact on the terms of the loan, the rate, and the consequences if you fail to repay the loan.

With fall and winter holidays come promotional emails from businesses encouraging you to spend more. These deep discounts can be tempting, & you may end up purchasing items you don't really need.
Go through your email inbox and unsubscribe from marketing emails. When you need to order something online, check a coupon site, like @RetailMeNot, for a promotional offer instead. #MoneyTipMonday
It’s important to think of retirement savings as a commitment. It’s not something you do with any money you happen to have left over at the end of the month; rather, your savings should be a high priority. Prioritize needs over wants in your spending, and make no mistake: Retirement savings is an absolute need. @forbes at Sausalito, California

Target one debt first. Pay off the minimum balance on each card first. Focus on one debt at a time. Pay off the credit card that charges the highest interest rate, or make a point to pay off the credit card with the minimal balance first. #MoneyTipMonday
Would you like to speak with a financial planner about your specific needs? If so, we'd love to hear from you!
Beginning when you turn 70.5 years old, IRS regulations generally require you to withdraw a minimum amount of money each year from any tax-deferred retirement accounts. If you don’t take enough money out of your accounts, you may have to pay a 50% penalty on the amount not taken.
Understanding when and how to take your required minimum distribution is critical to ensuring you avoid future penalties and stay on the right side of your disbursements.

As the end of the year approaches, you may be looking at your investment portfolios and are probably beginning to assess how much capital gains tax you’ll have due. Chances are, no matter how much you have invested in equities, some of them increased in value, while others decreased, resulting in a loss.
If, across all your equity investments, you made more than you lost, than you should consider tax-loss harvesting.

If you are really finding it difficult to pay off your debts, then you must renegotiate with your creditors. Contact your creditors and ask them for a new and lower repayment schedule. Most will be willing to work with you. #MoneyTipMonday
Does Politics Really Influence The Economy And Stock Market?
With midterm elections just a few weeks away, politicians of both major parties are promoting all kinds of potential effects on the economy depending on who comes out on top.
There’s a common belief in American culture that when Republicans are in power, the rich get richer, and when Democrats run things, the middle class gets a boost.
But are those assumptions true? Link in our bio to read more.
Our retirement planning strategies are based on understanding the quality of life you’d like to have once you’ve retired, and then to work backward from there.

One of the best-kept secrets of the #FinancialPlanning industry has almost nothing to do with stocks, bonds, or retirement accounts. It’s called a Health Savings Account (HSA), and using one can save you thousands of dollars a year in medical costs, and reduce your tax burden at the same time.

If you don't know where your money is going, you are losing money. Each month, review where your income went and if it is not in line with your financial goals, evaluate what to change. #MoneyTipMonday
