For our Fintech Spotlight segment this month, we are featuring our sponsor, Facet Wealth. They make working with a Certified Financial Planner professional simple and convenient.
I’ve invited a founding member and the Chief Evangelist of Facet Wealth, Brent Weiss to tell us more about this virtual financial advising company and how it’s helping clients of all wealth levels achieve their goals. We’re also going to discuss the importance of working with a fiduciary and defining what financial planning looks like.
Taking advantage of the stock market is an incredible way to build wealth for your family. By investing in the market, you are forcing your money to work for you. Your money starts to make you more money!
But … Where do we start?
Can we do this ourselves?
Should we turn to a financial advisor?
How do I know a good advisor from one that’s just trying to sell me financial products that only benefit them?
Our guest today, Joe Saul-Sehy is going to help us with this exact conundrum.
Our question of the month comes in from Ryan from Pittsburgh. He wants to know how to find the best financial advisor:
I’ve been listening to your show for the past few months. I like the way that you and Nicole partner together to meet your financial goals. It’s inspiring me and my wife (who is also coincidently also named Nicole) to do the same.
We’ve been following the Dave Ramsey baby steps and recently paid off our last debt. When we got focused, it really only took us about 2 years to pay off our $60,000 in debt. We both had car loans, student loans and a little bit of credit card debt.
Now that we’re debt-free, we want to start saving up for retirement. We’ve been delaying our retirement investing based on Dave’s advice to hold off until you’re debt free. I feel like we’re WAY behind though. We’re both 30 and we barely have anything in our retirement accounts.
