Financial Planning Advice

Oakland Financial Planners

Oakland financial planners are available to help you with your California financial planning and investment planning needs. If you think that you don't need a financial planner because you don't have enough money, you are wrong. Planning your finances doesn't just mean retirement planning, it is also imperative to your current life.

Part of the reason that wealthy people are wealthy, is because they plan and budget according to what they have and what they want in the future. If you intend to be wealthy in Oakland or at least comfortable in the future, you need to consult with an Oakland financial planner today. If parenthood happens to be in your plans for the future, financial advice can also help you afford that.

Why Do I Need to Use Financial Planners?

"I do not have enough money to make it to the end of the month, what can a Oakland financial planner do for me?" "I live paycheck to paycheck, why do I need planners for my finances?" "If I could afford to use financial planners, I would not need them!" Do any of these statements sound familiar? Even if you have not said or thought them verbatim, if you are like most of us you have thought along similar lines. I am going to let you know some of the reasons why Oakland residents without much money are the exact people who need to make an appointment to use one of the many Oakland financial planners now.

If you live from check to check, an Oakland financial planner can still help you find where you are needlessly spending money and help you make out a budget which will allow you to start saving money. I can hear you now saying "but I do not needlessly spend any money!" Look closely at what you spend your money on; do you ever buy a bottle of water or a cup of coffee? Do you ever buy your lunch instead of brown bagging it from home? When a cup of Oakland coffee averages around five dollars, one bought for every workday will add up to close to one hundred dollars a month. If on those same days you buy a bottle of water or soda at your corner Oakland market then you are spending another twenty-five to fifty dollars a month and if you buy lunch even one day each week you are spending close to two hundred dollars a month that can be considered ‘needless' spending.
Use of an Oakland financial planner can help you determine where your money drains exist and give you the means to plug them and put that money to better use.

The Dreaded "B" Word, Budget

Living on a budget in California can be difficult but if you intend to get ahead financially in Oakland, it has to be done. Oakland financial planners can help you make a budget that you can live with. If you absolutely can not live without your Venti Mocha Latte, take the money that you are handing over to the coffee house every month and put it toward an espresso machine and make your own. This way you are just budgeting for your supplies every month and not helping a coffee house meet their overhead.

With a budget, an Oakland financial planner is then able to advise you on different saving or investment strategies which will allow you to grow a nest egg and have some breathing room when you pay your bills. With the CA economic crisis, we all need to have money put back in the case of unemployment or major expenses. Careful planning done by skilled planners can help give you the ability to weather any of the storms in your finances that can comes your way.

Financial Planners Will Get You Where You Want to Be

Without a good picture of where you are with your Oakland California finances, you can not make a plan for where you want to go. It takes determination and dedication to devise a budget in CA and stick to it, but without doing this you will be in the same place next year that you are right now. You can not count on winning the lottery or an unknown Uncle dying and leaving you a fortune. Even if either of those two things happens, if you have not learned proper money management, you will be back to square one in no time.

Contact one of the many Oakland financial planners and get instruction and guidance on your finances. Not only will they help you with your short term planning, with their help you can begin to make contributions to a California 401k, traditional IRA, Roth IRA, college and other ideas for your education.
