Variable Annuities: What makes them “variable”? How can they be both “variable” and “guaranteed”? What is a “rider”? Check out this video to find out.

Over the next few weeks I’m going to be discussing credit. Although all of these videos will touch on how various topics impact your credit score, today’s video focuses on that subject. This video will give you an idea of how your credit score is determined and how your credit score impacts terms on loans you apply for.

While most people are fixated on their monthly payments when evaluating a car or home purchase, they should probably be more focused on the interest rate. This video explains why the interest rate on your debt is so important, how it impacts your payments over the life of a loan, how to interpret your interest rate, and when to invest versus pay off debt.
Wrapping up our credit discussion, I wanted to talk about credit lines. Although your line of credit is impacted more by your income than your credit score, it’s still good to know how they impact one another and how you can improve your lines of credit. Not only is this my last video on the topic of credit, it is the last video I have planned for the time being. If you have any other topics you would like to learn more about, please let me know.
Last week I mentioned a link between physical fitness and financial fitness as a means to a happier, healthier life. Today I want to discuss that link in more detail and explain why it is so important.
