  • Newark, NJ (1888PressRelease) September 17, 2015 - Guiding your journey to financial well-being. Jim McCarthy, CFP®, ChFC ®, Managing Director, Directional Wealth Management, was recently featured in an article in Inside Jersey magazine.

    The article, "When The Graduate Returns Home," states that a significant percentage of college graduates return back home to live. It is a harsh reality that student loans and the inability to find competitive jobs have become major obstacles for those looking to succeed. To address this issue, Jim McCarthy, uses a combination of both his professional and personal experience to advise parents on how to manage and steer themselves and their children down the appropriate path.

    McCarthy encourages parents to "expect a college graduate to pay something toward their living expenses - the amount is not as important as is the discipline of paying a monthly housing/living cost."
