As the school year draws to an end, many students are breathing a sigh of relief. No more classes, no more tests, no more learning. But in order for you to be the best employee you can be and have the best career you can have, learning should never end.
Learning is at the center of every career development plan. When thinking about your career development you should take into account your career interests, the needs of the business and the skills you need to improve or learn in order to be successful in your career. When you develop your plan, make sure it is realistic and achievable and something you can start to work on immediately.
In 2017, Rhinebeck Bank’s Retail Banking department began rolling out their Universal Banker program in the branches with the goal of providing you with the best service possible. There is no longer the notion of “John Doe is out to lunch – can they call you back?” The objective of this program is to make sure our customer’s service and experiences are as seamless as possible, and that they can be assisted by the same employee throughout their transaction. Former Tellers and Relationship Bankers have transitioned to this Universal Banker role.
Teaching our children how to budget money today is very different than it was 30 years ago. When I was little, my mom put cash on the kitchen table and separated it into simplified piles: one pile for the house payment, one for the electric and cable bills, one for food, one to save, and then one final pile for what was leftover. This would be the pile we could use for a special activity like going to the movies or maybe a new pair of sneakers we wanted. It was easy to see and understand. We were always told cash was king!
When January 1st comes around each year, most people try to think of at least one thing they want to improve in the coming year. For many, the resolution is about their health, whether it’s to lose weight, eat healthier, exercise more, or maybe even quit smoking. Experts say that one of the best ways to achieve your New Year’s goals is to start small. Breaking your goals into manageable milestones helps to build the desired habit and eventually that habit becomes a way of life. These milestones also act as small achievements, helping you stay motivated.
Elder financial exploitation is the illegal or improper use of an elderly adult’s funds, property, or resources by another individual. This exploitation can take many forms, including scams, abuse by trusted individuals such as family members or friends, and predatory products and services marketed specifically to the elderly.
Do you remember your first job as a teenager? The happiness you felt at earning your own money and the freedom to pay for things yourself? Today, teens between the ages of 13 and 18 are most likely to babysit, mow lawns, or perhaps even have their own businesses on eBay or other sites. I know quite a few young entrepreneurs who make money by selling homemade doggie treats, glitter slime, and even buying sneakers and selling them online at a profit! Teenagers are finding new and interesting ways to earn money, so how can we help teach them to use that money wisely?
(Not when working on your down payment and closing costs!)
Hopefully the vast majority of prospective home buyers know that they do not need a large down payment to purchase a home. There are a variety of low down payment programs including a few 100% financing options. But even with low down payment options many borrowers still need some help. One way to help is through the use of “Gift Funds”.
When exactly is the right age to start teaching children about money? My opinion is that it’s really never too early to start! In fact, the earlier you can start to talk to kids about money, the more those lessons will stick with them as they grow up. Here are some great tips to help kids as young as three or four start to understand the importance of money:
