For those of you who haven’t heard, I am a Certified Financial Planner. This is part of my training for the CFP exam. Now, I’m not the only one who is interested in finance, but my job is definitely one that I’m passionate about.
I started out as a CFP in 2013. My passion for finance has also led me to work for a local financial institution, but I found myself having a few niggles with the job and wanted something that I more intimately understood.
I am a pretty big proponent of the importance of having a solid understanding of finance, its role in society, and the various options available to individuals. My hope is to educate these employees on the benefits of their employer, how to properly budget, and what to look for when selecting a job. I was a bit hesitant at first when I thought about doing this, but I have heard nothing but positive things about it. I am a fan of a lot of the common career paths.
The thing is, finance is not very common. Like, what do you do with the money you’ve set aside for a down payment? Most people think of saving money for a rainy day, but that’s not really the best way to spend your money.
I think its a really great way to start your career, especially if you do it part-time, because the money goes into a savings account, and you don’t have to worry about saving for a rainy day. I know its possible now because I’m a finance professional, but I remember when I was still in school working in the finance department. I had to figure out how to budget my money, and as a result I made a lot of mistakes.
The best way to save money for a rainy day? To make sure you have enough going into the savings account. If you dont have enough going into the savings account, and you have to wait for a rainy day to start your savings, then you have to save for a rainy day. It’s a pretty good way to make sure you have enough to make a little money, but it can also be better.
Now that you’re in school, you may want to start saving for the future, because if you don’t, you may end up like the rest of us – unemployed and broke. Even if you don’t plan on working for a while, you can start saving the money you make from your other jobs, or from the side hustle you’ve started. Your savings accounts can be used to invest in things like stocks, mutual funds, and even real estate, should you want to.
The reason we all don’t do that is because youre not in the same room with your parents. The only time we have got to do that is when we’re not in the same room together. We’ve got to keep our heads down.
The rest of the game is like a game of chess, and we’ll take the winning moves so we dont get to know them. We could have done it a couple of games a year ago if we had known a few more people. And most of the time we can learn it.
The best way to avoid this is to do it right, and that means being a bit of a jerk. You want to do it because we all need to get on the financial side of things, but youre not going to be in the same room with your parents. That could be a problem.
