There are some red flags to look out for...
We all hear the clichés about how to spend and not spend our money. However, how do we know that the financial tips that have been ingrained in us from the get-go are actually valid claims? In this post, we will discuss whether or not it is time to leave these myths behind.
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.
Majority of home shopping and home buying take place in spring and summer, however, there are some benefits to buying a house during the winter months. Here are five reasons to buy a home in winter.
1. Motivated sellers

When we interview for these openings, many candidates state that they are “looking for a career, not just a job.” What does that mean?

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?
I get asked this question quite often when speaking with the public and it is a great question. In fact, sales people typically have a 30 second “elevator” speech prepared as a response when asked about the company they work for. In my opinion, as a Rhinebeck Bank Branch Manager, there is not an easy 30 second, answer I can give, and I’d like to tell you why.
Last year Rhinebeck Bank started a Mentor Program for our employees. The goal was to attract quality new hires, develop leaders within our organization, and retain high-potential employees. We are happy to say that we recently rolled out our second class of Mentors/Mentees, and have more than 50 employees participating in this very well received program.
A Mentor Program pairs a more experienced professional with a less experienced individual. The focus of the mentor/mentee relationship is to support the growth and development of the mentee, with the mentor being a source of support, insight and knowledge.
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:
