What’s your financial plan? Is it built on bedrock or are you “winging it”, aka building on sand? On today’s show, Certified Financial Planner Brian Ursu joins us to dive into four strategies that will help anyone trying to build their financial house. For veteran planners, these will be things you’ve heard before. However, the question isn’t, “Have you heard them?” Like anything, you should ask yourself, “Am I doing them?” THAT may yield a completely different answer.
Plus, TurboTax maker Intuit has been in the news recently, because they’re buying credit score site Credit Karma. What does that mean for consumers like us? Also, because Credit Karma is a FinTech company, what does that mean for FinTech? We’ll ask Ryan Falvey from Financial Venture Studio both of those questions. If you’ve heard Ryan before on our show, you know he’ll have an interesting point of view.
Of course, that’s not all. We’ll throw out the Haven Life line to a lucky listener AND still leave time for Doug’s trivia…which today takes a more-than-usual unusual twist.
