You need to know where to go for the information that will help you most in life. Instead of asking friends for advice on how to fatten up your rapidly thinning piggy bank, ask an expert. Friends are who you should talk to about your love life, work hassles, and other personal issues. But when it comes to credit, investments, and your savings account, you don’t want to mix those two worlds. Sharing too much about how much money you make or have could also create unnecessary friction.
