Financial Forums

Financial Forums


By Ric Dalberri, Founder of Retirement USA

If you are not familiar with forums, they are a community of
people with the same interests and questions. Some solutions. It may be the
venue you are looking for. The more input on a subject the better odds you have
of coming away with something that may fit into your goals.

A financial forum can be a good place for you to start to
seek out the answers you’ve been unable to tackle yourself.

A financial forum can really help you because many on the
forums have dealt with what you are asking. You could find your solution or
find another idea.

Write out the questions you want to ask, for example: How to
reduce debt? Budgeting to balance your budget.

Just because you are seeking answers, it doesn’t mean everyone is. Some just
offer advice and are dealing with the same issues you are. You can be on the
forum at your leisure time. There is no specific time to sign in or out. This
may be easier for you.

Some forums may have different levels of expertise. Start
out small with introducing yourself and asking a question. As you get
accustomed to using the forum you can progress. Pretty soon you’ll be jumping
right in there with the best of them and maybe offering advice yourself.

Bear in mind how other forum members are getting along with
their campaign can often be a huge motivator. Sometimes you may even form a
friendship or two.

By being active in a financial forum you can be building your confidence.
People usually want to help others. It’s the American way.

This informal setting will give you some direction to go forward
to interview face to face you financial advisor.

So, what you have to ask yourself, “Is a financial forum
good for me?”
