My friend Andy Hill (here on Episode 66 of The Best Interest Podcast) published a family-oriented course to help beginners get their finances on track. 

I think it's a terrific resource.

Below, find both a free sample lesson from Andy, and a link to the full course.

Bank accounts serve two main functions: 

1) an account you use for regular spending, preferably with local branches

2) a bank with high-yield savings to keep your large cash savings at. 

I use a local credit union for #1

And I use Ally and Flourish for #2

Ally Bank



I love YNAB

It's detailed and requires your effort to make it work. 

But it's so valuable if you use it correctly.

Investing Brokerages

There's a "Big 3" of brokerages. If you want to invest, it's hard to go wrong making a choice from these 3. 

- Fidelity: I use this for my money. Low fees, great website. 

- Vanguard: the OG of index funds. Client-owned. But the website is a bit clunky. 

- Schwab: low fees, good user experience, lots of bells and whistles
