Some good laughs here but also some good messages (which I have paired with corresponding NGPF resources):


Message: With the power of compound interest, it is important to start saving as soon as possible!



Message: Take advantage of 401(k) match programs that your employer offers.




Message: How will investors feel about robo-advisors when the stock market hits the proverbial “wall.”




Message: Power of setting goals to help people achieve financial dreams.

Message: In the short term, the stock market can seem like a dangerous place akin to riding a roller coaster. However, when looked at over the long-term, the market seems a much less risky place.

Tim Ranzetta

Tim's saving habits started at seven when a neighbor with a broken hip gave him a dog walking job. Her recovery, which took almost a year, resulted in Tim getting to know the bank tellers quite well (and accumulating a savings account balance of over $300!). His recent entrepreneurial adventures have included driving a shredding truck, analyzing executive compensation packages for Fortune 500 companies and helping families make better college financing decisions. After volunteering in 2010 to create and teach a personal finance program at Eastside College Prep in East Palo Alto, Tim saw firsthand the impact of an engaging and activity-based curriculum, which inspired him to start a new non-profit, Next Gen Personal Finance.
