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.

And, once you are a member you be eligible for discounted rates for your other lending needs.
