We do not send alerts to your email at this time nor do we gather information on your visit. It's not that we don't want to know who you are; we feel there are enough people watching what you do everyday. So your time here should be private.
The content you find here is as accurate as possible but because of the large volume of material or our penchant for moving forward, sometimes material (especially in the world of money) can become outdated. If you find a glaring error, please let us know. We try to answer every email promptly. Otherwise, we try to keep the content you find at the site fresh and dynamic.
Because of the wide range of information found here from personal finance to insurance to investing to buying a home, the site will take some time to navigate. We have attempted to make this as easy as possible. If you have a suggestion on how we can make it even easier, we would like to hear from you.
The site has been fully operational since late 1998 and our mission statement has remained the same throughout. We believe that you are looking for information that is both concise and well researched and above all, free of any affiliations.

Our editor, Paul Petillo has written four books for McGraw-Hill. The first, released in 2004, Building Wealth in a Paycheck-to-Paycheck World provided many of our readers with a step-by-step guide to understanding their financial goals. "Investing for the Utterly Confused" was published two years later, followed by "Retirement Planning for the Utterly Confused". This book delves deeper into the world of retirement planning, the problems facing all of us as we head down that road and how to prepare for a future that seems to shift each day. Written for all age groups, the book looks at the most important aspect of the journey: you."Mutual Funds for the Utterly Confused" is scheduled for a December 2008 publication.
Thanks for stopping by!
