About Ian Wild, CFP®
All-Pro Advisors provides financial advice to Millennials and Gen Xers who are looking to build wealth by properly managing debt (credit cards, student loans, auto loans, mortgages, and lines of credit), saving and investing (retirement and non-retirement accounts), reducing tax liability, and optimizing cash flow. We don’t sell products or believe that your financial future should be sold to you. We provide information and data to make decisions that will generate the best possible outcome…and our clients pay a fee directly to us for that advice.
I founded APA to help the younger generations understand money and the challenges that are different than the Boomers who are retiring right now (student loans, dual income households). The only constant in life is change and we are here to help our clients keep up!
If you are someone who needs a change of scenery more often than the annual family vacation, you might find yourself allocating a significant dollar amount to the travel budget. My goal as a financial planner is to find different ways to make my clients’ money work harder for them. One financial tool that is available to just about everyone over the age of 18, is a travel rewards credit card.

As someone with a growing family of my own, we spend just as much time on the Zillow app as we do Netflix nowadays. The competitive housing market has driven prices so high that we had to broaden our search criteria to include prices that make me feel uncomfortable talking about. Instead of getting frustrated, I took a deeper dive into the financial landscape that has been created by COVID and broke down how much home we could actually afford, in today’s dollars. A combination of traditional personal finance guidelines, low interest rates, and common sense helped me become a more confident home shopper. Here are 5 factors to consider when creating your home buying budget:
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused housing prices to skyrocket in 2020. With the uncertainty that has surrounded us for almost a year now, homeowners are hanging tight in their homes for the most part. As reflected in the stock price of Home Depot and Lowes, the extra time at home has given people the chance to remodel, update, and make that home office presentable for the Zoom audience. Are these DIY updates causing home prices to increase by 15%? Many are asking why and how because they know that businesses are closing and people are losing (or lost) their jobs more in 2020 than most years.
