Millennial Message: Investing, Finance, and Fun

by Cynthia Marotz – CWS®, CRPS®, Financial Advisor

Cynthia Marotz has been a Financial Advisor for Allen and Company since 2003. Her motto is: “Let’s work to live… rather than live to work!” Cynthia believes that living a significant and impactful life requires financial planning and a saving strategy at EVERY age.

The millennial audience has much to contribute for years to come, and is a key focus for Cynthia. This generation has access to resources, both technical and otherwise, that are real-time game changers that go beyond the wildest imaginations of previous generations.

Many are asking: How does the current state of the world affect my financial situation and planning strategy? How will I work towards financial freedom and even plan for retirement?

That freedom — and feeling good – are forms of currency in their own right; we all know that time is money after all. Cynthia’s commentary explores the world of spending vs. saving with a focus on the challenges millennials are facing today:

  • How do I maintain a balance between what I have and what I save?
  • How do I stay relevant without sacrificing my financial future?
  • How can I work hard AND afford to play hard?
  • Plus, how do I do all that while I still have my health and a youthful spirit?

In the Millennial Message, Cynthia works to help the future leaders of America learn the fine art of balancing “working to live” as well as sound financial planning advice for the future.

As they explained how this process measures preferred behavioral style and values, I began to fear that they would ask me to take the quiz. Sure enough, the link appeared in my […]

Watch out for fake charities

Well… it’s the season of decorating… and party going… and spending time with family and friends. Of course, if you can squeeze all of that in to a few weeks that is. It’s also the time for giving – both in terms of charitable donations as well as volunteering your time. Fake charities, though? It’s […]

Not all holiday traditions are worth keeping around

Traditions…. we are all for it, especially when it comes to the holidays! But sometimes, certain holiday traditions don’t make sense to continue. There were some classic traditions in my family for every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year — regardless of whether we actually enjoyed them. So I, as a parent, vowed to discontinue those […]
