Do you really need to see a specialist to find the best financial advice? Only if you want to waste money on something that’s probably not a sure thing.
It’s a known fact that financial advice is more important to those approaching retirement age. This is the time to plan carefully and make sure that all of your finances are squared away. But you don’t need to hire someone to help you sort through your financial mess (if you have one). The best financial advice can be found for free from places you probably haven’t even thought about. How to Get Financial Advice – Free
Do you have family that got out of debt, or is working to get out of debt? Ask them for advice. You may be a mother, but you’re also a daughter, a cousin, a sister and an aunt. Don’t be afraid to ask advice from your parents, or those that are younger than you. You don’t have to explain the entire situation to them. Just say that you want some help, and see what they have to say. Even if they can’t help you directly, chances are they can point you in the right direction.
People Love to Help
Speaking of networking, try sending out an email to your friends. Explain to them what you’re looking for, and give them permission to pass the email along to people they know as well. You’d be surprised with how many people reply that are willing to help you out. (This also works for job hunting too!)
Read Up on Financial Websites
Subscribe to RSS feeds for financial websites. A lot of websites give free financial advice on a daily basis. They also have archives that you can look through to get the answer to the questions you have right now. If you know someone that subscribes to a financial magazine, ask them to be on the lookout for a particular topic you’re interested in, such as sticking to a budget or paying off your credit cards. Ask them to pass it on to you when they finish reading it, or to make a copy of it for you so that you can keep it.
