Sometimes, when we actually have a second to breathe between working and socializing, we young professionals ask ourseves life’s important questions. Should I start a 401k? Should I just buy a place instead of paying so much in rent? How am I ever going to pay for my unborn child’s college education? If you’re like me, these are usually fleeting thoughts. You know they deserve answers, but without guidance, they can be overwhelming to think about.
Well, the Business Council of Fairlfield County’s Young Professional Network is hosting a personal finance series in June to address these very issues:
Personal Finance Series: Managing your debt and improving your credit score
401(k)s and down payment savings obligations soon follow. While it is true the best time to start saving is in your 20′s and early 30′s, between debt and daily expenses, it is often very hard to get there while maintaining your credit rating.
Join us for a casual discussion on personal finance fundamentals with Joseph Strilbyckij, Senior Account Executive, Avantus and David Layne, Assistant Vice President, Mortgage Account Officer, People’s United Bank. The program concludes with an extended networking and wine reception on Robinson & Cole’s beautiful outdoor patio space overlooking Mill River Park.
