Destination Vacation
By Baillie Ward

For those of you in landlocked states, maybe the Florida ...

This week, I decided to try and break down these savings goals to offer some perspective on how much money (on average) is needed to reach some of the more popular savings goals. Granted, some people may want to splurge while others skimp, so these numbers are flexible. I’ve made ...

Sick, Stressed, and Still Trying to Save?
By Baillie Ward

Going Crazy over Credit Card Bills ?
If you’re anything like me, you probably took advantage of last weekend’s Memorial Day sales after spending a weekend with friends or family. If you’re eerily similar to me, you would have gone a little crazy at the mall and swiped your card a few too many times until it got declined.

The reason is simple, most of today’s employee benefits are not designed for the persona of a “pre-nester:” single, no children, healthy, high student debt, and living with their parents. For employers that recognize this disconnect and offer employee benefits that address the “pre-nester” challenges, they will enjoy a competitive advantage ...

For employers that recognize this emerging issue ...
