You have a crisp, new one hundred-dollar bill in your wallet. While it's not $1,000,000, $100,000 or $10,000, hey, at least it's something! Listen up. Just because you don't have much money to invest doesn't mean you shouldn't invest it. Want to know the most difficult part of investing? Starting. You read that right! Just starting is rather difficult, and once you accomplish that challenge, investing going forward is pretty easy. For those of you who are discouraged because ...

This is a paid post written by me on behalf of Discover Personal Loans. All opinions are my own. While I’m a financial advisor by trade, that doesn’t mean I’m always perfect. The life I live with my family is a lot like anyone else’s – rewarding and amazing but also flawed and even stressful at times. And yes, I’ve made my share of financial mistakes both big and small.

You can’t reduce your house payment quickly, or your car payment or your health insurance premium. That means that you need to find other places to save money – and groceries are one big category where you can. To help you ...

$2 million is a lot of money. But let’s face it, it’s not as much as it was a decade ago. So when a hopeful retiree approaches me with a nest egg worth $2 million and wants to know if they’ll be able to successfully retire, there isn’t a clear-cut answer as many would think. There are many factors that go into the equation such as: Retirement goals Spending habits Dependents Desired retirement location Health Investment risk tolerance And much more This is what makes financial ...

More specifically, it’s the inability to save money to invest that keeps them from getting started. But there’s a trend developing called micro-investing that can help you to overcome that hurdle. Micro-investing not only handles investing for you – with very small amounts of money – but it also enables you to save money ...

This is a paid post written by me on behalf of Discover Personal Loans. All opinions are my own. As a finance major in college, I was supposed to have it all together. But, I had a little secret. Even though I was studying the intricacies of the financial markets in college, I had credit card debt and student loan debt. My student loan debt was especially troubling since the Army National ...

One reason that it's so difficult to keep up with Medicare is that it's constantly changing. The government is always adding or taking away restrictions on health care. Not only does Medicare coverage continue to change, but supplemental insurance continues to cover as well. Medicare is an excellent government program, and it help provide health care coverage to millions of seniors across the nation, but it doesn't cover everything. In fact, ...
