It’s not like we can simply pay the monthly bills and be completely satisfied. We just don’t function that way.Today, almost everyone has a computer and goes online for information on almost every subject. It is no different for financial advice. Most large brokerages, banks, and financial firms have websites where you can find advice on personal finances, on financial planning, on savings, and on investments. The websites offer tips on how to create a budget or obtain a mortgage, among other topics.
