Our Kansas City Financial Planner Weekly Roundup

Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the NextGen Wealth Weekly Roundup.THE NEXTGEN WEALTH WEEKLY ROUNDUP 1

The stock market continues it’s crazy roller coaster ride keeping us on our toes every single day. You never know what you’re going to get from one day to the next.

My recommendation would be not to look at your accounts on a daily basis. If you do, with the amount of volatility we’re experiencing right now, it’s going to drive you crazy. And, if you’re not careful, it could cause you to do something that’s not in your best financial interest i.e. trying to time the market.

With that said, try to tune out the noise as much as you can. We’re here to help with some great reads from the past week. So, settle in with a nice cup of coffee and enjoy.

Have a great weekend.

According to the American Research Group Inc., the average American intends to spend $992 this holiday season. For some, this could end up breaking the bank if they're not careful. With all of the pressure to spend during the holidays, it's easy to go into debt.

Paying Off High-Interest Debt - Is It A Good Investment?
