11 Money Pros Share Their Best Tip – Ally Bank’s #6SecondFinance

What's your best personal finance tip? That's the question posed to 10 money pros (and me) this weekend at #FinCon13 by the team at Ally Bank. Ally Bank was an exhibitor and took the opportunity to run a couple of social media initiatives – one of which was #6secondfinance – where bloggers were invited to share their best personal finance tip using a 6 second Vine video. Money pros included were:

J.D. Roth (Get Rich Slowly), Andrew Schrage (Money Crashers), Liz Weston (AskLizWeston.com), Ashley Jacobs (Wise Bread), Luke Landes “Flexo” (Consumerism Commentary), Brandon Duncombe (Bankrate), Janet Stauble (Bankrate), Claes Bell (Bargaineering), Donna Freedman (DonnaFreedman.com), and Jeff Rose (Good Financial Cents)

I was surprised by the variety of answers. Check them out…

Which is your favorite money tip? Do you have one to add to the list? Tag your Vine video with #6secondfinance and I'll include you here.

  1. I have to add a money tip. Pay off your highest interest accounts or credit cards 1st, and this small tip will save you thousands of dollars.  Your highest interest credit card costs you the most money if you carry a balance on it and only pay minimum payments, so get the balance paid off ASAP.

    These are great!  Spending less than you earn is such a basic concept but probably the best advice to heed.  Without that, there’s no room for savings, investments, etc.
