Teacher Traingin: Personal Money Management Websites
Each of the following websites has a personal finance section that will help you get started. This is by no means an exhaustive list. Search and find one you like. I would strongly discourage getting your financial advice from an insurance website. They encourage low-yielding, high-commissioned products.
CNN: Sections on personal finance, real estate, technology, and its partnership with Fortune Magazine make CNN an excellent source for the wealth seeker. It also has the most attractive and most easily navigable site on the web. I have used this site to help students learn financial literacy.
MSN: Sections on personal finance, investing, and taxes, without the super hyped headlines of other financial news sites, make MSN Money a popular site for many. The information is comparable to CNN, but the layout makes it tough to navigate.
Yahoo: Yahoo’s done a great job of landing well known personal finance experts such as Ben Stein and Suze Orman, who give solid, independent advice you may not hear from a broker trying to earn a commission. Yahoo’s real estate section and its investing section are the best on the web.
Natalie Pace: Natalie’s newsletters contain solid, reliable, and wealth building information. She deals with investing basics, specific stock picks, and the wealth mindset. She has created a niche with her focus on green technology and socially conscious investments. I rarely make an investment without reading her insights.
Bankrate: Bankrate cuts through the hype prevalent on many of the financial news networks. I consult Bankrate whenever making an important financial decision.
Roth IRA: Go here before starting any retirement account.
