Many in the Capital Region know the reassurance that comes from getting medical help from a trained, caring nurse or doctor. We feel relieved and comforted that help is on the way.

Can we ever feel that way about our finances, which are a major factor at the root of stress-related physical ailments?

A growing number of skilled, trained financial professionals are bringing financial medicine to middle-class families in our communities. They analyze situations, make diagnoses, and give prescriptions. And they also make house calls, like old-fashioned doctors.

Where are we taught?

Think about it: We're trying to get through this maze called life with no guidance on money, a major part of our lives.
We go to school. We get courses in English, History, Math, Science, and more. What course don't we get?

Has any ever taken My Money? Money 101? How to Build Savings?
