Liesel's Blog

Hi, dear friends, clients and those waiting to become friends!

I pondered a very long time about whether to add my most personal stories to my professional business website. I recently had a really amazing experience that helped me make this decision. And I decided that it's okay to be human, show my clients I have my own struggles, issues and tugs-of-war inside.

I hope you find something of inspiration here. If an entry or story meant something to you, please do leave me a comment. I love hearing from real people!
Much Love
Liesel

Bad vietnam news for those with credit card debt: The Federal Reserve hiked its key rate on Wednesday by a quarter percentage point and, as a result, your own interest rates could rise almost immediately.

The Fed raised the rate for federal funds by a quarter percentage point, to 0.75% to 1% at the end of its two-day meeting on Wednesday, and signaled two further rates rises in 2017. In other words, the Fed announced an increase in how much banks will be charged to borrow money from Federal Reserve banks. (The Fed raises and lowers interest rates in an attempt to control inflation.)

That increase will most likely eventually be passed on to consumers, said Sean McQuay, a credit card expert at the personal finance website NerdWallet. Many households with credit card debt — the average household carrying credit card debt has more than $16,000 — will likely take a hit.

Here’s how the latest Fed rate increase could impact your credit cards and bank accounts.

Because a rise in the federal funds rate means banks will likely pay more to borrow from the Federal Reserve, they may pass that cost on to consumers.

Quotes

If all the gold in the world were melted down into a solid cube, it would be about the size of an eight room house. If a man got possession of all that gold -- billions of dollars worth -- he could not buy a friend, character, peace of mind, clear conscience or a sense of eternity." -- Charles F. Bunning
