Financial Freedom 101

Posted by Daniel Nase, MBA

Financial Freedom:

Our everyday lives are dominated by the quest to be happy and not suffer. We strive every day to fulfill our needs through knowledge and trial and error often forgetting that wisdom is the real solution. Sometime we wonder is it even possible to achieve freedom? To many of us, financial independence might look like an impossible dream or something that only the very wealthy can achieve. Let me break it to you, you can be financially free! Financial independence exists everywhere in different industries, different locations, and with different kinds of people. There is no set rule that you have to think or act a certain way except that most people had to work hard for it. Sometimes that means dusting yourself off and learning from your mistakes, or getting an education either by working for someone more successful or going back to get a master's degree.

Loan Payoff Calculator

Posted by Daniel Nase, MBA

Jun 16, 2014 3:03:00 AM

A loan payoff calculator is a great tool for visualizing how long it will take to become debt free. We have many different types of loan calculators to help you accomplish your goals, but first things first. Not all loan payoff calculators are created equal. For example, there is a debt snowball calculator that focuses on paying off your smallest debts first assuming they are also your highest interest debts. This is not always correct, so what you really need is a calculator that does the same thing using the highest interest rate. In addition to finding the right calculator you may also consider the benefit of being in a group of people with similar goals to keep you on track. This is what investment clubs are all about.

Debt Snowball Calculator - The Most Effective Way to Become Debt Free

Posted by Daniel Nase, MBA

Jun 15, 2014 2:48:00 AM

The Debt Snowball Calculator is a wonderful tool for helping people become debt free. Each one of us is likely to incur debt at some point in our life. It is even probable that circumstances compel us to get indebted a great deal.The scenario becomes even worse when that debt is accompanied with an exorbitant  interest rate. In such situations worrying until your hair is gray is not much help. The most effective strategy we know of is the debt snowball. There are actually two methods of using the debt snowball calculator: focusing on the smallest debt or the highest interest rate. In a side by side comparision, people succeeded more often by paying off the smallest debt because they stayed motivated. However, paying off the highest interest debt using the same concept actually paid off the debt faster.

Deferred Compensation - What You Need to Know Before Retirement

Posted by Daniel Nase, MBA

Jun 15, 2014 2:09:00 AM

Deferred Compensation is defined as an agreement between an employer and an employee to withhold payments of wages, invest them on the employee's behalf, and pay them later to the employee in the form of retirement benefits. Deferred compensation eliminates the tax the employee would normally pay on their wages and can take the form of a pension, retirement plan, or employee stock option plan.

Every month, an employee expects to earn some income in the form of wages. While some take all of it home, others choose to keep a portion of it with the company's retirement savings plan. In most mid-sized companies, employers purchase an annuity, offer stock options, or some form of pension. These retirement plans are normally designed to replace 60% of your working income after 30 years with the same employer. Just like one would wish to save for the future, deferred compensation is a retirement plan that allows people to avoid the taxes associated with receiving their income right away. Most companies or employers in the USA encourage employees to subscribe to retirement plans.
