If you think you could use a money makeover, you aren’t alone. As a financial advisor, Lauren Lyons Cole works with the brightest and most interesting people in New York City. But being smart and successful doesn’t mean you know how to manage your money. In this episode of the Financial Fix Lauren helps a hip, young Brooklynite figure out how to simplify his finances.
At just 32 years old, CK Swett has made quite a name for himself. He’s caught the attention of many publications, including being featured in the New York Times for shaking up the auctioneering world. CK travels all over the world raising money for important causes. His approach to auctioneering is innovative, and wildly entertaining. But as a busy young professional, he doesn’t always have the time or interest to stay on top of his finances. That’s where Financial Advisor Lauren Lyons Cole steps in.
When it comes to financial success, getting organized is often the hardest part. CK needs to put simple systems in place so he doesn’t have to think about his finances. By automating his bill payments and savings goals, CK can get back to what he’s good at: making money…and spending it.
