Now What?: A Practical Guide to Figuring Out Your Financial Future (Paperback)
Real-Life Financial Advice for Your Fiscal Future
So you've finished school and found your first well-paid job. Congratulations Now don't squander it With real money flowing into your account for the first time, it's easy to embrace those new preapproved credit cards or to buy that new car you've been dreaming about. But without a solid understanding of your financial future, you risk losing everything you've worked for.
Many of us--and not just those starting out--were never educated in financial planning or sustainable wealth management. Now What? bridges that gap with practical advice for readers of all ages dealing with fiscal change. If you've just landed your first big paycheck, have recently inherited, or are divorced or widowed, this book will guide you around the pitfalls of new wealth.
Brian Ursu offers you concrete guidance for paying down debt, including student loans; planning for life's expensive milestones, like buying a house or having children; and creating a sustainable lifestyle now and in your future. He also explains the basics of investment, where and--maybe even more importantly--why to invest and how to build a portfolio, so you can grow the money you've earned to create not just a solid foundation but also a legacy for you and your family.
