Episode 14: How Much You Should Really be Saving and What to Know When Selecting a Credit Card
/

I’ve had the same credit card for as long as I can remember. I’m hearing a lot about rewards programs and the need to maximize my options. What should I know when I’m shopping for a credit card?

I’m in my late 30s and I feel like I’m doing okay with savings, but I’m not sure that I’m doing enough. How much should I have saved by now?

One of the fun parts of being a financial planner is getting to field and answer questions from clients and readers all around the country. In these Work Your Wealth episodes I’ll be taking time to address and answer questions I’ve come across from readers and clients throughout my career. Today I’m answering the above questions:
