BLOG: Planning For Big Purchases

In the financial planning world, there are many different approaches to paying for large purchases. There are some financial experts out there who will tell you to never buy anything unless you can pay for it in cash. Others will tell you that taking out a loan is fine for some things (like a house), but not for other things (like a car).

With all this conflicting advice, it can be tough to figure out the best way to make a big purchase. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be as difficult as it seems. By taking a little time to consider your personal situation, values, and goals, you can decide on the best way to approach your next big purchase.

BLOG: Managing Your Money: The Importance of a Strong Money Mindset

Your financial mindset involves how you think and feel about money. Your perspective and mindset form the basis for the tactical decisions you make about your finances. An effective financial plan requires both sites: the tactics and the mindset.

When you work with a financial planner, they may spend most of the time helping you decide which tactics to use. But it’s crucial to consider the other side of the equation too. Combining tactical actions with a mindset that reflects your values and goals is the key to the best financial plans.

Understanding how to balance parenthood and a career is more important now than ever.
