Life is often a bit easier when you receive a word of wisdom to guide you along the way. Here, you’ll read some wise words from financial planners on retirement, saving, investing, budgeting, and managing your finances.
Financial Planning “Many people who are wealthy weren’t always wealthy. They started off with no money. But one of the things that they did do was seek out advice, so when the money did come in, they understood what they needed to do because they had some kind of blueprint or plan they could work on.” -Cheryl Broussard, registered investment adviser and author of Starting Over: Fast Cash and Getting Back on Financial Track
Investing “The benefit of investing your money is that you no longer have to trade your time for money. When you’re working, if you don’t show up for work, you’re not getting paid. When you’re investing, it doesn’t matter whether or not you show up; your money is working for you. So that’s one reason for investing. Your money is working for you, so you have more choices around how you want to spend your time.” -Jacquette Timmons, president and CEO of Sterling Investment Management and author of Financial Intimacy: How to Create a Healthy Relationship with Your Money and Your Mate
Budgeting “Don’t be afraid of a budget. Think of it as a spending plan that will help you stay in control of your money.” -Yoli Marie, author of Financial Fitness for Young Adults
