You may currently wonder how you can afford to buy a house while still making student loan payments. Perhaps you're stressed about how to fit child care and college savings into your budget. Or you may just have extra cash in your savings account that you think you should invest. When my wife and I got married and later prepared to have our first child, many of our conversations revolved around these same personal finance questions.
With a background in finance, I had a head start on some of these common Millennial money questions. But even so, we still put a lot of effort into researching our options and agreeing on a plan. We both knew that our lives were about to get more hectic, and we were concerned that these financial tasks would cut into the limited time we had for date nights and playgrounds.
I often thought, if I have these feelings – even with an MBA in finance – how much more stressed must other people my age be? I realized that I had the ability to offer our generation an uncommon alternative: a financial planning company, specifically designed for us, by a peer and Certified Financial Planner. Welcome to Illumint.
