Consumers Want Advisers to Focus on Financial Planning | Consumer Economics | Scoop.it

Americans want their advisors to be knowledgable and have designations - new survey says!

Sasha Whitley's insight:

I think this is valuable not only to me, but to everyone. The CFP designation is important for all financial planners. It shows that the stuff they learned in school - really did stick - and gives them a competitive edge in the marketplace.

Sasha Whitley's insight:

This article makes the arguement that not enough money is being spent on financial education. With stats from the CFPB, it makes a good point that young people don't know how to manage their finances. Those young people turn into adults who don't know how to manage their finances... My goal is to try to change that. One person at a time!

The Year of Suck

Adjusting your lifestyle to meet your financial goals can "suck" but it doesn't have to.

Sasha Whitley's insight:

Pam does a good job of reminding us that if you create a financial goal - the rest of your life doesn't have to suffer. If you decide to pay off all of your credit cards - then after you pay one off - go treat yourself. Try and put a positive spin on your goal instead of reminding yourself about the negatives.
