Personal finance is a hot topic in the news these days – and there’s a good reason for it. No matter what age category you’re in, you likely have a number of decisions to make around what you need to do with your finances. Millennials, on top of struggling to find work, need to pay down their student debt and start saving for the future. Baby Boomers need to make sure they have enough saved for retirement. And everyone in between is thinking about mortgages, refinances, debt consolidation, insurance policies, etc. etc. etc. The list goes on and on.
