SNL and a "lighter" side of accumulating debt
If you missed it, Jason commented that my last article, "One question that leads to financial wisdom," reminded him of an old "Saturday Night Live" skit about buying stuff that you can't afford. Check it out. And many thanks for the chuckle, Jason.
I'm in my 40s. I've worked since 1998 for a large investment company, first as a financial writer, today as a financial planner.
I passed the Certified Financial Planner(R) examination in July 2008, which covers insurance, taxes, retirement, and estate planning. (Note: I am NOT certified as a CFP(tm) practitioner yet; should be by 2011.) I've also served as a Good $ense ministry financial counselor, teaching others how to be good financial stewards of the blessings God has provided. I'm happily married, with an adopted college-age daughter, a teenage stepdaughter, and a young son and infant daughter. (Just your typical American family. ;)
