If you’re looking for smart ways to save money and invest in your long-term future, these four tips, all from women executives at The National Bank of Indianapolis, will help set you on the path to financial freedom.
JILL H. ROBISCH
VICE PRESIDENT & SENIOR BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT OFFICER, NONPROFIT SERVICES
“Spending for value means knowing when someone other than you is best positioned to take on a task. While we might be paid salaries, knowing your hourly rate can be a helpful benchmark for understanding when you might be better off paying someone else to do a task. Time is money!”
MELISSA R. OLIVER
VICE PRESIDENT & INVESTMENT OFFICER, EMERGING INVESTOR MARKET
“Think of building wealth as a monthly debt obligation. You pay yourself first (ideally saving 10%-20% of income) and then you spend what’s left.”
KERRY A. RITZLER
Vice president, private banking
“Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Surround yourself with a team of experts you can trust.”
BETH W. MCINTIRE
VICE PRESIDENT & SENIOR FIDUCIARY OFFICER/MANAGER, TRUST LEGAL, TAX & ESTATES
“All adults, no matter their age, need estate planning documents that should be reviewed and revised as life changes.
