The problem is the sources they are using when it comes to all of the personal finance topics available.
People will ask their friends, family, co-workers, etc.
only to be left with disappointment when they are given poor information.
Well today I am going to discuss the places that you should seek your personal finance advice from including paying a professional, to finding free information.
Now, if you are the type of person that is not very resourceful and find yourself trusting people that always let you down, your best option is to find a professional financial adviser.
If you don't even know where to start looking for an adviser then you are probably in desperate need of help.
Almost any large financial institution will have financial advisers available to you.
Walk into your bank, or call your brokerage account and ask what they offer and what the costs involved will be.
Those of you that are a bit more resourceful and have a good foundation for understanding your personal finance goals can probably fine the information from quality sources on the internet for free.
Now I would caution you to take anything you find on the web at face value as there are a lot of dot com websites setup that post content and don't care if it is quality to the point of helping you, but rather a means of drawing in traffic to sell you something through on of their advertisements.
Any website that is publicly traded or well known in the financial world is probably going to be a good start.
Many people have heard of BankRate and others like it to find the information they are looking for.
Finding a site that publishes content on financial advice is going to be the hard part, but once you have found it be sure to bookmark that site or subscribe to the RSS feed to have updates automatically sent to you.
Once you have found a site that is offering quality information, now is the time to speak to family and friends.
asking them if they have ever been to RPP Financial, or Bankrate is going to get you a yes or no answer, rather than their personal opinions on the topic.
It is really up to you where you seek financial advice.
