Because sometimes it’s not just enough to save. Resources to help you invest, negotiate, and start your side hustle.

Favorite Resources

Everything we use and love

Personal Capital

Personal Capital’s free tools were created for the person who wants to GSD. They offer investment tools, including a top-notch retirement calculator and college savings calculator. My favorite part about using it for investing is that I can log into one place and see exactly what I own: stocks, bonds, and others. Plus, there is a fee analyzer that will tell me exactly how much I’m paying in fees. This makes keeping track of my investments a breeze.

Vanguard

Vanguard is one of the low-fee leaders in the world of investing. We use them for pretty much everything: retirement accounts, taxable investment accounts, and Henry’s college savings. While they are a DIY option, you can find some easy to use options, like their target date retirement funds.

My experience with them was fantastic. From responsive customer service to other perks (like career counseling), Sofi has you covered. And, once you are a member you be eligible for discounted rates for your other lending needs.
