Saving for Retirement: Traditional IRA vs ROTH IRA

56% of Americans feel behind on saving for retirement, yet 25% of workers haven’t made retirement contributions in at least a year, according to Bankrate. For some, retirement is right around the corner, so much so that it can feel more scary than exciting. For others, it’s tempting to sweep saving plans under the rug since that time seems so far away. Regardless of your position, today’s actions build the savings for your future, and it’s never too late to start. But where DO you start?
Let me introduce you to my little friend: an Individual Retirement Account (IRA)

What is an IRA?
Specifically designed for retirement savings, IRAs are individual retirement accounts with tax advantages. Two of the most popular retirement accounts are traditional IRAs and Roth IRAs, and you can invest in both simultaneously. Today, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of each and how they can...

What is a personal loan?

Personal loans are sums of money individuals can access and use for various expenses. When using a personal loan, you must repay the borrowed money overtime and in full by a fixed end date. These loans have fixed interest rates and must receive equal monthly payments over the agreed-upon repayment term, usually ranging between one and seven years.

The sum of money you receive from a personal loan depends on factors like your credit score, income, debt-to-income (DTI) ratio, and lender. Individuals can apply for the amount they need, but the lender’s policy will limit the...

Understanding Credit Scores: No Luck Required

March is the month of four-leaf clovers and Leprechauns, but did you know it’s also the perfect time to learn about credit and credit scores? That’s because March is National Credit Education Month! What’s even better? You don’t need any luck to be a credit expert!
What is Credit?
Let’s start at the beginning. What IS credit? If we flip open the history books, we’ll find that the word “credit” first appeared in the 1520s. Individuals within the financial industry would use the word “credit” when referring to loan reliability and trustworthiness.

Little has changed with the way we refer to credit today. Credit is your ability to borrow something of value from a lender with the understanding that you will pay for it later.

Say a good friend, Joe, borrowed $100 from you. Two months go by, and Joe still hasn’t paid you back, but he calls you and asks for $50 more. You might hesitate...

2 Debt Repayment Strategies You Will Love

Does reading “debt repayment strategies” send a shiver down your spine? That wouldn’t be the only cause for a case of the chills. The temperatures are dropping, the wind is howling, and it takes me at least 10 extra minutes to leave my warm, cozy bed each morning. February is here, and with it comes thoughts of two things: snow and Valentine's Day. While piled under blankets with a warm cup of tea, I fondly recall two snow-themed debt repayment strategies: the snowball and avalanche method. Debt repayment isn’t as cold as you think, especially when the warm feelings of debt-free living aren’t far from reach. Let me prove it to you!
What is the Snowball Method?
When a situation is “snowballing,” it means it’s growing bigger and bigger. This debt-repayment strategy follows the same idea with the funds you allocate to debt repayment growing larger, NOT your debt.

The snowball method debt repayment strategy tackles debt balances from smallest to largest. First, you diminish your smallest...
