Welcome to Global Money Solutions! This is the new blog for Timothy Roberts & Associates, LLC.

We hope that this is the first of many times you will take the time to visit our blog. We want you to get to know who we are, what we do and how we can be of service to you. More importantly, we want to use this platform to offer valuable information that will assist you in taking a closer look at your finances.

We should seek the greatest value of our action. ~Stephen Hawking

We make decisions daily about how we are going to spend our time, energy and money. We don’t always make decisions that will add value to our lives. We sometimes choose to engage in activities that are not beneficial to us and add no value to our current or future circumstances. In this case, let your action of following our blog be a step in a direction that can and will change how you think about money. So, let’s be honest… there are tons of blogs out there and thousands about finance and money matters. Everyone has a blog these days. So the question becomes why would you want to spend your valuable time reading our blog. Well, here it is… VALUE.

Yes, it is absolutely that simple. We desire to give you value. We not only want to offer you financial value but also holistic value. When we approach financial matters holistically, we acknowledge that our money does not stand alone but affects every area of our lives. Our decisions about money impacts where and how we live, what we eat, how we get around, how we raise our children, the education that they receive and even how they are impacted when we are no longer here to physically provide for our families. There is a scripture in the bible that says, “money answers all things”. If money answers, it is important that we ask the right questions of it. Some of the questions would be:

*How much money will it take to retire?

* How much money should be saved each month in case of an emergency?

* How much money will be needed to take care of my family in case of death?

* How much money will it require to purchase the house of our dreams or to start the business that we’ve always wanted?

Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice. ~Anton Chekhov

Whether we like it or not, a money question can be attached to every situation or circumstance of our lives. Therefore it would be beneficial to consider those questions with intention through knowledge and planning.

It begins with getting the right financial knowledge. Knowledge means nothing unless that financial knowledge is put into action. How do we begin to make our money work for us?

* Seek the assistance of a financial advisor

* Set financial goals

* Put yourself on a budget

* Save for the big life changes (i.e. college, retirement, layoffs)

These are just some of the steps that can be taken to put ourselves and our families in a better financial situation. Where you begin is not as important as when you begin.

Price is what you pay. Value is what you get. ~Warren Buffett
