Profile America: Financial Wellness Month


January Is Financial Wellness MonthProfile America — January is Financial Wellness Month, appropriately timed to the confluence of New Year’s resolutions and holiday bills. It’s a time to set new goals for financial freedom and moderation in spending; for people to understand the benefits of “paying yourself first.” A financial adviser can help shape money management goals, pointing out the power of compound interest to work for you in savings and against you in debt. Americans have a per capita income average of just over$28,000 and a household median income of $53,000. For family households, the median is nearly $66,000. There are some 196,000 personal financial advisers in the U.S., helping Americans reach their goals and turn that income into more net worth.
