LearnVest, an online website focused on making personal finance easy for women, rolled out some great tools today that might just give money management site Mint a run for its money. What I'm really excited about is the Ask an Expert feature, in which you get instant, unlimited access to certified financial planners for $5 a day, $40 for three months, or $130 for a year. Here's a breakdown on what you can expect from each tool:
- My Money Center: Link all your money accounts (just like with Mint), which includes your bills, bank accounts, 401(k), and more, so you can track them in your inbox.
- Advice Center: Access the Ask an Expert tool and pick which package works for you. Have a quick question? Get the $5 pass. But if you have something that needs ongoing help, maybe you should consider the three-month pass or year-long pass. The Advice Center also includes a variety of money courses, which use videos, cute infographics, and other interactive tools to help you create a financial plan.
- Take Control Bootcamp: This free 10-day bootcamp will send you one email daily. The email will be filled with items you should do in order to take control of your finances.
So how do you get started? It's easy, just create a free account with LearnVest, sign in, and you'll immediately be taken to the dashboard with all the new tools.
