Can You Trust Your Financial Advisor?

Is your financial advisor pitching you financial advice with your best interests at heart?
 
Here’s why I asked this.
 
A report released by the Consumer Federation of America who sampled 25 major brokerage firms and insurance companies said that brokerage firms and insurance companies may call their professionals “financial advisors” BUT 
“these individuals often are actually sales representatives who pitch mutual funds, annuities and insurance products.”
So the question now is:
 
can-you-trust-financial-advisor
In a hurry? ===> Check out Truly Rich Club! It’s where I learned to be FINANCIALLY FREE! The financial advisors over here are TRULY trustworthy!

Can you trust your financial advisor?

We always get a pitch from financial advisors.

And we are not sure if they TRULY care for us or if they only truly care for their commissions.

Are there ways to learn if they really are knowledgeable and competent and not just trying to make a sale?

Are Mutual Funds and Unit Investment Trust Funds (UITF) Good Investments?

 
Have you decided about getting a VUL yet?  I hope my post here will help you make an informed decision.
 
I probably have written about how much I love Mutual Funds and UITFs as investments for beginners, but some people need a point-by-point explanation.
 

So, are Mutual Funds and Unit Investment Trust Funds good investments?

Mutual Funds and UITFs are basic investment tools for growing your money.

 

Here’s one thing.  My eldest, 20 year old daughter, who has graduated and has passed the board  in one of the courses offered by SLU’s College of Natural Sciences, has NO IDEA about Mutual Funds and UITFs and may be prone to make the 4 Money Mistakes that even I do all the time.
 
And her 11 year old brother knows these beginner investment tools. (They actually teach Money in my son’s school!)
 
To be financially free, everyone, whether you have a finance or science degree, whether you are still going to school or a new college graduate, whether you prefer science lingo to boring finance terms (my daughter lol) SHOULD know Mutual Funds and UITFs and how they work.
 
Because MUTUAL FUNDS AND UITFs are your basic investment tools to GROW YOUR MONEY!

A Baby Exposed to Beautiful Music is a Happy Baby

I bet you will agree that kids and music go together.  They are literally a musicians fruend!Music is what you use to successfully comfort your colicky baby.  It is that groovy song or nursery rhyme that you used as your toddler gingerly tries to stand up and walk on his own. 

But what really goes on when a baby is exposed to music?

Baby

A lot, experts say, since studies -  although I bet you know them by now – prove that music makes a child happier, calmer, makes him understand language, be good at math and a lot more.

I will detail the effects in a future post.

3 Ways to Stop Hitting Snooze

I have woken up to the news to hear, yet again, that this is the coldest morning this year. 

I love cold mornings, I really do, but I love it more if my blanket wraps me in warmth and I don’t have to wake up to do mommy duties.

But since the truth is I cannot, here are strategies to stop you from hitting your snooze button all the time!

  1. Put three alarm clocks in strategic places.  Put them in areas of your room that are far from you – the point is you have to get up and away from your bed to turn them off.  Set them five minutes apart for maximum effect.
  2. Use the most annoying sound clip in the planet as your alarm.  This never fails.
  3. Wake up to your fab party playlist.  Opening your eyes to Queen B’s song and realizing that you need to get to guitar center lakeland is sure to get you dancing out of bed.

The Sharp Fully Auto Washing Machine: Always Ready for any Heavy Laundry Work

Manila, Philippines—To any moms, or possibly to anyone in general—whether a yuppie taking responsibilities in her new apartment, a dad in charge of the house for the day, or the teenager designated to do the chores over the weekend—laundry day remains to be the day most people would rather skip. With piles and piles of clothes waiting to be washed, it can truly be overwhelming.

Sharp Fully Auto Washing Machine

While laundry day is indeed not everybody’s favorite, there is no denying that it is an important chore in the household. But with a variation of fabrics that require different washing treatments—from cotton, to wool, to those thick and heavy denim pants—doing the laundry is no easy job. It takes a certain knack and a certain amount of patience for someone to perfect the art of clothes washing and drying.
