fcuk-wit smart

When I started it, I felt I was making a smart move. You know, the smart woman of this century taking care of her own finances and stuffs like that. I realise now, I was fcuk-wit smart. I am going to lose a lot of money to come out of a shithole that I entered in the name of financial planning. Was apprehensive of going via a financial consultant as some of them endorse only those products where they can get good commissions. I am sitting and reading up as much as possible now after all the blunder that I have done with my money.

Finally, my colleague’s husband is helping me out as my financial advisor but the bottomline is that a flat of my own in Bangalore is looking even more elusive.

Hey that is a tall order for anyone.

All the best for that. I am reading a lot about personal finance from this website. Maybe you have already read it but still sharing the url.

Just scroll down for The Money Simplified Archives.

Very very informative.

well my knowledge says that trust your own judgement over a consultant's in matters of financial planning.most of 'em look towards meeting their targets rather than ultimate benefit tht di client desires. all di best to handle da crisis!!

Hi,Arunima,sorry to hear about that..yes,financial planning consultants,et al,usually promote the products which give them max mileage..and,to sell the products,they're sweeter than sugar itself..here's hoping ur loss gets minimized,somehow.

Take google bagwaan's help, and make your own decisions. That's what I try to do.

At least you had enough money to be approached by a financial advisor.

If you need help, call/email me. I can more thanhelp.. but it works only if you are honest to yourself first.. because charity (and all else) begins at home :)
