Given Jeff's unique interest in the financial markets and his excited to meet new people, being a financial advisor was the perfect fit for his career. He started his career as a financial advisor with A.G. Edwards & Sons in 2001.

In January of 2005, 4 years into his career, he was called upon to support Operation Iraqi Freedom. Anticipating his return, he attained the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor designation between mission and duties during his downtime in Iraq.

As soon as he returned from Iraq, he resumed his career as a financial advisor. His goal was to provide financial guidance to people in all areas including: investments, insurance, taxes, and estate planning. In November 2007, he became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner, and a month after that, he formed Alliance Investment Planning Group LLC. Since then, Jeff created his own registered investment adviser named Alliance Wealth Management LLC.

With the hope of helping people make sense of investing and their personal finances, Jeff launched his own personal financial blog called Good Financial Cents and life insurance site Life Insurance by Jeff.

Why is there a wide margin in interest and a narrow margin in total amount paid on a home loan, even after cutting interest rate in half?

That's because you're adding $27,000 to the new principal balance. Your interest total is dropping by about half, so it's working out as planned. It's not always clear when working out the true cost of homeownership, and refinances can complicate the calculation.
