When I got married in January, I wasn’t really considering the financial ramifications—other than the fact that it was less expensive to elope. But soon after marriage, a lot of questions started to come up.   Here are the biggest ones I had, as well as the answers I found:   How do my taxes change?   Once you’re married, you have the option to… (Show more)

I have hit yet another millennial milestone: I am getting my driver’s license!   Initially, I thought I wouldn't want a car once I got my license. But now, I’m thinking why not? My main concern is the extra money I’d pay for a parking spot and permit per semester, as well as for insurance (and the car itself, of course).   I think a car could… (Show more)

In the spring of 2016, I decided to start a podcast because I knew they were popular in the online and finance business space. I also thought it would be a lot of fun.   Two months into my project, I started receiving requests from different financial experts asking to be guests on the show. Now, I’ve interviewed more than 20 guests—and I’ve… (Show more)

My son turned one last week. First birthdays mean a birthday party. Birthdays cost money, which inspired me to write this post.   Like when celebrating many “firsts,” there is a temptation to go all out. Often, these added bells and whistles cost money. Without skimping out on the birthday festivities, my wife and I made some decisions that… (Show more)

  My nephew Ryan is marrying his girlfriend, Whitney, the end of this month. As an aunt, I am excited to witness this young couple make a long-term commitment to each other. I just love a wedding!   But as a money and emotions expert, I know that it is important for any engaged couple to realize that marriage is a financial commitment as well.… (Show more)

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with Warren Buffet’s 25-5 rule. If you’re not familiar, it’s a simple exercise to help you figure out the things that matter to you most. You make a list of 25 things you want to achieve in your life, and circle five of them. Then, you instantly forget about the other 20—and focus only on achieving your top five.   The… (Show more)

As a millennial, I tend to lack patience for certain things—like waiting for food at a restaurant. But for my financial portfolio, I recognize that patience is necessary. Building a financial portfolio is a commitment, not a task. It takes a tremendous amount of time.   As the saying goes, “Rome wasn’t built in a day.” The same goes for your… (Show more)

Last summer, I took an internship on campus and was faced with the decision of how to house myself for the summer months. This led to me getting my very first apartment … sort of. From early May to the end of August, I sublet an amazing apartment right by my school!   When you sublet, you sign an agreement with an apartment’s current tenants for… (Show more)

While I certainly look at all my financial goals every January, I like to think of April as the financial new year.   Seeing as how April is Financial Literacy Month and spring is in the air, it seems like a good time to clean your financial house. You also have to file your taxes in April, so you might as well keep the financial train going.  … (Show more)

Tax time is upon us. The dreaded April 15th date where you fill out your tax form, run to the post office by midnight that day and pray you don’t owe money.  The first year you participate you feel like an adult, but as time goes on you realize this is like eating your peas - the responsible adult thing to do but not really that enjoyable. The… (Show more)
