Many credit card companies offer rewards to attract new customers. And it works! A 2018 study found 79% of people choose credit cards for their rewards.

Chances are, you sit down with your supervisor once a year for a short, scripted conversation to go over how you’re doing in your job since you took on the role or since your last performance evaluation.

This time you’ve also been asked to submit a self-assessment as part of the process. Not sure where to start?

Don’t worry — we’ll show you how to write a winning self-evaluation.

What is a Self-Appraisal?

Before we get into strategy, let’s define the term. A self-appraisal is a performance evaluation you do on yourself.

It requires you to self-reflect on the previous year (or term being…

If you’re in debt, it can feel overwhelming.

You may feel like you’ll always be indebted and that things will never get better.

However, plenty of people have been where you are and have successfully gotten out of debt, and you can too.

First, though, you have to stop digging the debt hole and stop adding on to your debt. And if you’re going to stop digging, you need to know the difference between the right and wrong ways to get out of debt.

No matter when you retire, you want to know what role Social Security will play in your financial future.

Will it go away?

How much can you expect?

When should you start benefits?

In a GoBankingRates.com survey, more than 5,000 respondents identified the number one financial topic they wished they’d learned as teenagers in school.

The six possible answers included:

Tabulated by age group, the results revealed most young adults — aged 18–24 years of age — wished they’d learned how to invest in the stock market over the other options provided.

Young adults weren’t the only age group most interested in learning about investing. Surprisingly, it ranked highest for those in the 55–64 year age group and the top 3 for all age groups.

If you’re like most people, you spend quite a bit of time hanging out on social media.

Companies know this and take great care to cultivate an online presence that engages, delights, and supports their target market.

But, chances are, the firm’s CEO isn’t cranking out tweets, Instagram posts, and Facebook lives.

They hire a social media manager (and sometimes a team of them!) to handle that.

If you’re a well-connected ninja on multiple platforms, this might be your calling.

Here’s what it takes to be a successful social media manager, broken down into four main sections:

  • Business skills
  • Technical…

A 403(b) plan (aka tax-sheltered annuity, TSA) is similar to a 401(k) plan, but it has a couple of important differences.

403(b) Plans

Here’s how they work: if your employer is a public school, including a state university, a non-profit, or a church, your organization may have a 403(b) you can use to save for retirement.

Real estate investing can be an excellent way to build wealth. And with low-interest rates, the internet, and reality DIY shows, it’s become more popular than ever. But those things have also fast-tracked people into making some mistakes.

When you’re getting started, there’s a lot to learn. It isn’t as easy as it looks on TV, and many investors won’t find instant success. Without a plan and little know-how, it’s easy to slip up, especially at first.

So, before you open the door to real estate investing, it’s wise to understand potential pitfalls.
