Here at Mom and Dad Money, I help you take control of your money so you can take care of your family

It’s hard navigating all the new financial responsibilities that come with starting a family. From handling new expenses to building savings, buying insurance, paying off debt, and investing for the future, it’s a lot to take on and there’s a lot of pressure to get it right.

I know from experience. Even with my background as a financial planner, I struggled to make the right decisions when my wife and I were having our first son. I honestly didn’t feel confident in my ability to handle it.

Maybe you’re feeling overwhelmed too and you’re not sure where to start. Or maybe you’ve already made a lot of the “right” financial moves, but you’re still not sure whether you’re on the right track for what YOU want out of life.

No matter what, I know that you want to feel confident about your financial decisions so that you can stop worrying about money and get back to the things you actually enjoy.

Through my personal experience as a dad and the one-on-one financial planning I do every day with other new parents, I’ve learned a lot about what works and what doesn’t.

And my mission here at Mom and Dad Money is to make sure that YOU know how to take the next step and build a better financial future for you and your family.

I hope you’ll join me!

It all has to do with this weird thing called 401(k) vesting, and in this article I'll explain what it is and how to calculate the amount of your 401(k) that's truly your money.

How do you set up a system that handles all the money coming in, all the money going out, and makes sure that it's being done right month after month?
