Organizing Your Financial Life

Fall Financial Fitness: The Basic 5 Checklist

As we fall back into financial fitness this month, we’re focusing on ways to get (or stay) on track financially for the rest of the year. This week, we’re going to layout a basic 5-step financial checklist that we believe everyone should use to guide their financial life. If you can’t check them all off, then let’s get to work!

Organizing Your Financial Life

We all know a few of those people who are meticulous about organizing things, right? Some people’s closets are color coordinated, and some people have every box and Rubbermaid bin in their home labeled, categorized and stored in the order of how often they’re needed. Remind you of anyone? The truth is, this makes it easy for these folks to understand what they have, where it is, and what purpose it serves in their home.

5 Financial Assumptions to Let Go

For those of you reading this who already work with our team, thanks! We always appreciate your business and your referrals. If you’re reading this and you don’t work with us yet, I want to address some of the common misconceptions that keep people from picking up the phone and scheduling their complimentary first meeting with us. 

Why Pay for a Financial Professional?

After two decades in this business, one of the most common questions I hear is, why should someone hire a financial advisor? Why should someone pay for this service that my team provides? These questions frequently come from DIY investors who work part-time as their own advisor, whether or not that’s something they’re trained for (it never is). 

3 Stages of Emergency Funds

When it comes to how much you should save up in your emergency fund, there’s all kinds of advice available out there about this topic. We’re not going to waste either of our time – go ahead and Google it! I guarantee you that, based on that search and how conservative you are or aren’t, the answer to that question is going to be different. That’s the beauty of Google – they learn the personality of the person searching and give you the information you want to hear.

4 Ways to End 2021 Financially Strong

We all know holidays are busy, and the last thing you want to think about is money stuff. I get it. I’d much rather be shopping for ugly Christmas sweaters and eating way too many holiday treats. But trust me – taking care of these four things today will make the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017 much less stressful.

Give the Gift of Financial Planning

Every year at Thanksgiving, it’s tradition in our home to take a few minutes and go around the table so everyone can share what they’re thankful for. We know that this year – probably more than last year – you’ll be getting together with your families for the holiday. For some, it may be the first time seeing them in quite a while. 

Fall Financial Fitness: What You Save

We’ve been exploring financial fitness over the last few weeks, and taking a look at the three main areas that affect your financial wellness – what you earn, what you spend, and what you save. First, we covered different approaches to income and how to align your goals with what you’re bringing in. Then, we talked about taking an honest look at how and where you’re spending your money. Today, we’re going to explore our final aspect of financial health – what you save. 

Fall Financial Fitness: What You Earn

Over the next three weeks, we’re going to be talking about financial fitness and the three primary areas that comprise your financial health – what you earn, what you spend, and what you save. It’s important to take a close look and consider each of these financial buckets at least once a year to ensure you’re on the best financial footing for your life.

Focus on Your Financial Goals

Somehow it’s the end of September, and that means you have 60 days. Remember, for half the month of December, the kids are out of school and it’s Christmas for the FFP team. So. You basically have 60 days to get everything done in 2021 that you wanted to. (If that doesn’t stress you out, what will??!)
