Tips to Keep Your Finance Under Control in 2019

Albert Williams, a nationally renowned economist and an associate professor says that this is the perfect time of the year to discuss finances and offers some financial recommendations for the end of 2018 and some resolutions for 2019.

He says online shopping has made it even easier for people to overspend and be over budget. When you're walking through a mall and have more packages than you can carry, it's a sure sign that you've overspent.  Unfortunately, we don't have that same "alert" when we're ordering online.


Dr. Williams' expertise is in personal finance, corporate finance, macroeconomics, microeconomics, and managerial economics. He has extensive experience working with both print and broadcast media.

Dr. Williams offers some tips to end 2018 on the upswing and some resolutions to keep your finances under control in 2019.
