Source on investing in ICOs

If this year has taught investors anything, it is a MUST to investigate an ICO before one invests. The crazy crowdfunding days of free money for ICO’s are over, and with good reason as many of those ICOs were fraudulent and just looking for quick cash. So how can you see into an ICO to be sure it is a good investment? We have Jori Falkstedt, CEO of Verifer who can discuss what investors should be looking for in an ICO and what 2019 has in store for the ICO funding vehicle as well as what should beware of. Would you like to speak to Jori about Investing in ICOs?

Timely topic: How to avoid holiday overspending…

From Melissa Mitchell via prnewswire.com

According to a recent Swagbucks survey, 63% of Americans go into debt from holiday shopping, with 25% of them accruing more than $500 in debt. No one wants to start the New Year in debt. What should Americans be doing throughout the year to save for the holidays, as well as for their retirement so that they do not end up in debt? What can consumers do if they have not saved enough for the holidays?

We have several financial experts who can provide tips for holiday spending, what people should be looking for in the New Year, as well as many other timely financial topics that consumers are wondering about.

Would you like to schedule a call with one of them?
