Timmons - Money. Choices. Relationships.

I am very much interested in your financial well-being. More than anything, I want your financial life and choices to reflect the successes you experience in other spheres of your life. I want you to feel confident, powerful and validated. Yet, this is not necessarily how some of my clients [...]

It’s here! That time of year when you and I are inundated with messages about how to make this year our best year yet. According to the University of Scranton-Journal of Clinical Psychology, 45% of Americans will do this by making New Years resolutions. Some will tell you that making [...]

The Key Question: “What Else?” http://www.jacquettetimmons.com/what-else/ http://www.jacquettetimmons.com/what-else/#comments Fri, 19 Dec 2014 00:13:29 +0000 http://www.jacquettetimmons.com/?p=9991 Jacquette M. Timmons - Money. Choices. Relationships.

One of the most powerful personal finance tools you have at your disposal isn’t a spending or investment app. Or, a spreadsheet. It isn’t your income statement or balance sheet, either. It’s a question. Preferably one that begins with the word – “What?” I have long known this. It’s one [...]

Perhaps you can relate: You experience something traumatic. It’s followed by a strong desire to change something you can control – to offset the change you couldn’t. If you’ve ever experienced this, then you’ll understand my deep desire for a little home makeover. With the help of a dear friend, when [...]

Here’s an excerpt of an email I received yesterday. “Dear Jacquette, I would like to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. I know this year’s Holiday Season will be very different than any other, but from what I know of you, I have a feeling that your focus will be [...]

Timmons - Money. Choices. Relationships.

At least once or twice a day, I peruse finance.yahoo.com to quickly peruse the latest in financial news – especially to see what’s trending in personal finance. This particular post, “How this celebrity couple bounced back from bankruptcy,” caught my attention not because of the title (some celebrity or another [...]

I purchased it this weekend from Amazon and got a great deal because of their “Countdown to BlackFriday” sale.

Timmons - Money. Choices. Relationships.

Yes, it’s rather bold of me to presume you have an issue when it comes to retirement savings (and planning). But check out these stats: According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, just 53% of American workers participate in any type of retirement plan at work. A recent TIAA-CREF survey [...]
