Mind Over Heart? Your Wallet is Full of Emotions
Elaine King Fuentes, CFP
Human beings make most decisions at an emotional level, which often contradicts logic. Even though logic is the language of the mind, emotion is the language of the subconscious – therefore, it often defeats logic when it comes to making decisions. This can certainly be true when it comes to shopping.
Starting Your Retirement Plan from Scratch
John Hauserman, CFP®
Whether you are young and getting an early start or a bit older and trying to play catch-up, starting a retirement plan from scratch can present some unique challenges. While the ultimate prescription for success may change depending on age, the process itself does not change.
Between Rocks and Hard Places: American Parents Struggle to Save for College
Eleanor Blayney, CFP®
Ask parents if a college education is in their kids’ future, and most will say yes. But for many of these parents, this hope for tomorrow is eclipsed by the financial pressures of yesterday and today. This is certainly the picture that emerges from a September 2014 survey conducted on behalf of CFP Board by ORC International. Of the 1,003 parents surveyed, approximately 46 percent claim they have not started saving or planning to save for their children’s higher education.
Keeping your Data Safe Online
Jennifer Lane, CFP®
Whether you’re shopping online, sending an email or accessing your online financial accounts, it’s important to know how to keep your information safe on the web. No longer are others prevented from accessing your information online. As security breaches at major retailers and phone service providers have shown, your information is available.
Helping Your Kids Become Financially Literate
Marguerita Cheng, CFP®
Parents would not dream of raising illiterate children – so why does it seem that to many parents, financial literacy is less of a priority? Teaching children how to manage money is one of the most important responsibilities parents have.
