Overview

Whether you’re about to start your first job, thinking about saving for your child’s college fund, or actively planning for retirement, Financial Adulting is full of useful information designed to help you avoid common pitfalls and position yourself for success.

As a California attorney, Certified Public Accountant, and Certified Financial Planner©, Aaron Rubin has seen it all, and many times it’s not a pretty picture. Never shy to tell it how it is, Rubin provides practical advice about budgeting and saving, taxes, investments, insurance, and estate planning. He tells you what to avoid, what to focus on, and isn’t afraid to call out those who may not be looking out for your best interests.

Rubin also connects with readers through shared experiences. He acknowledges his own shortfalls and tells stories out of his own life (some amusing, and others cringeworthy). We all make mistakes and feel foolish at times, but it’s from these mistakes that we can learn and grow.

Adulting can be scary, particularly when it comes to our finances, but with practice (and some decent Chardonnay), you will be amazed how well you can navigate these tricky waters.
