I'm Asking: Who Do You Turn to For Financial Advice?

I'm Asking: Who Do You Turn to For Financial Advice?

If the recent economic turmoil has had any positive side effect, it's that people are talking more openly about money and how to handle it. Financial conversations are less taboo at a time when money is on everybody's minds. Is there anyone in particular that you turn to financial advice?

Oh, and MSN's money site has some AWESOME articles that I've been perusing lately. Usually they are completely random money tips, but great to have in the back of my mind.

Dave Ramsey, Savvy, my counselor (on the emotional issues behind money), people I know who have smart money lives.

Nobody specific online... I pick up whatever I see online, in a magazine, newspaper, etc. but when I'm asking questions I go to my friends and family who are experts about whatever I'm wondering about. I have a friend who flips houses, one who is a day trader, one who works in insurance, etc. That helps a lot.

Dave Ramsey. Although I must say I have always been pretty responsible with money.

I'm a Dave Ramsey addict. I was never taught financial responsibility. So I have had to figure it out for myself and he's helped.

My dad, always. He's taught me more than any of my economics professors ever did, just by instilling me with intuitive common sense and setting an example.

My mom is big on trying to teach me not to make the same financial mistakes she did. She just bought me Suze Orman's Young, Fabulous and Broke and I love it! It's a huge help and is giving me concepts that I can actually USE, rather than telling me to stop buying coffee and going out to lunch.

My dad's a brilliant investor, and just has a lot of good common sense when it comes to money. He's very helpful. And Erin Burnett from CNBC when she shows up on the Today Show while I'm getting ready in the mornings. She doesn't give advice quite so much, but she really helps clarify for me a lot of the financial concepts that are prevailing in our conuntry right now.

I think Jean Chatzky is the best. I also read Kiplinger's. My parents raised me to be fiscally responsible, but my lifestyle is so different from theirs I don't think they understand my situation well enough to offer constructive advice.

I turn to my dad for "tell me it'll be OK" advice but he is strangely silent on that point ... actually, the fact that he is not freaking out (at age 60, he's close to retirement) does help me but he's not all sunshine and roses. Among financial professionals, I like Clark Howard and Suze Orman. Cramer's zany approach turns me off, even if his advice is good.

Definitely Cramer. Even though he keeps missing moves.

see theoretically i should be able to turn to my broker to get a bit more information on the economy and how my finances are doing, but he never seems to have time, even if it's through an email to respond to my questions so sadly i'm turning to Cramer on Mad Money to understand what the latest is.
