• Would seeing a financial advisor be a good idea for me?

    I’m contemplating the idea of seeing a financial consultant. However, I’ve recently learned that they are not cheap, and spending money I don’t have kind of defeats the purpose of seeing someone to help me finance. So my situation is this: I’m about to turn 21 in a few weeks & my boyfriend just bought us a trailer we’re going to live together, the deal is he pays all bills & I’ll supply the house necessities such as groceries, hygiene products, etc. well I work at a subway until my technical college places me at a job once I get my diploma & I am needed by my mom to help out, we receive death benefits which stop at before you turn 18 which my brothers are about to stop. She will have no income I will not waste the typing space to explain moms situation she is unemployed & nobody will hire her. I pay her rent & car insurance & my car note & my care insurance. I need my wisdom teeth removed ASAP & I need to get my own home ASAP . My boyfriend knows I’m only staying with him until I get my own place we assume that will be a few years but in the meantime I’m staying broke I need help would seeing a fincancial consultant be a good use of my money or no? I’m thinking of making a loan to go see the financial advisor

  • I'm always broke I get every two weeks and i have too many bills, where could I get free money?

    Best answer: You already screwed up somewhere. Free money is like a unicorn. Doesn't exist. You need three things to make it in this world: 1. A job that pays well enough to live. This might include an education. 2. A place to live that doesn't ruin your security or budget. IIf your place doesn't fit the category,... show more
    Best answer: You already screwed up somewhere. Free money is like a unicorn. Doesn't exist.

    You need three things to make it in this world:
    1. A job that pays well enough to live. This might include an education.
    2. A place to live that doesn't ruin your security or budget. IIf your place doesn't fit the category, move.
    3. A personal life that doesn't overspend your income. Don't try to keep up with the Joneses if you just get by. Kids and wife are a factor in this part.

    Now that you can see this clearly, start building your world. Forget trying an easy out. If you think there one, you're fooling yourself.

  • Special Forces to Investment Banking?

    Hey everyone. Trying to get an idea of how to leverage my military background in SOF in order to land an IB job at a reputable firm.

    Hey everyone. Trying to get an idea of how to leverage my military background in SOF in order to land an IB job at a reputable firm. I am looking to attend either Queens College, Baruch, or NYU and will be roughly 27-28 when I graduate. I assume the candidates I will be competing with are going to be around 23 or 24 years old. Is my age a concern when looking to land an analyst job at an IB when they can grab a younger graduate instead? Any feedback is appreciated.

    So, my boyfriend just started a new job, he signed up to get an ADP card (which I would also like more info on if anyone knows because my boyfriend isn t the best at explaining things), and they asked him to bring in a blank check, but he doesn t have a bank. I asked him "how are you even supposed to get that if you don t have a bank?" and he answered with "I think you can just give me one from your bank or something." We re both confused and I don t really get why they need a blank check from someone who doesn t have a bank account. Anyone know what we should do?

  • Is a police officer a better job than bank teller?

    Best answer: A pd office takes stamina. You have to be able to work any shifts, day or night. Go out in all types of weather. Sometimes, cover very large territories. Put up with many, many insane people who by rights, should be locked away. Bank teller can also be stressful, but has regular hours and no driving about.

    Best answer: I have savings that would cover my expenses for six months.

    I have no cable TV. I don't smoke, and drink minimally. My cell phone plan is less than $30 a month, because I have no data plan.. I drive a car I purchased, used, and I'll keep it as long as it's reliable. My house is not fancy. All my furniture was used. I repair as much as I can myself. I don't take days off work because the weather's nice or leave my boss in a bad situation, so when I do take time off, he helps me as much as he can.

    I recently just graduated with a degree in a finance and I'm having trouble finding work. No, I'm not the everyday millennial who "whines" and feels "entitled". I've actually received multiple offers from various financial institutions and have worked at a bank for 4 years. The problem is, I'm beginning to realize that I don't like finance. To be honest, I kind of just ended up here. I understand that a finance degree is a good degree to have, but it's not something I'm passionate about. Anytime I look for work, all I see are financial analyst positions. When I go in for interviews and hear the actual description of the job, I can never imagine myself doing the work. Or its sales, and I hate sales with a passion. I want to explore my options outside of finance, but I never get call backs. Even for positions that I exceed the requirements. How can I get pass this road block?
