See what you can do to protect your child’s future credit.
What is debt consolidation? And is it right for you?
For many, managing and reducing debt is a popular New Year’s resolution. It’s such a big goal, however, that it can be difficult to identify tangible steps to make that goal a reality. Earlier this month, Dr. Dave Yeske spoke with ABC 7 On Your Side’s Michael Finney to share his thoughts on debt consolidation and other best practices for paying off debt.

Super Bowl Strategies
Our team is buzzing along with the city of San Francisco as we prepare to watch our San Francisco 49ers square off against the Kansas City Chiefs next Sunday in Super Bowl LIV. And just as each team will arrive at Hard Rock Stadium armed with a playbook that blends hours of research with the ingenuity of the league’s top strategists, Yeske Buie has its own financial planning playbook, designed to tilt the odds in our clients’ favor. We thought we’d take this opportunity to share the key elements of Yeske Buie’s Creative Strategies and Grounded Wisdom® playbook.
