Welcome to Gideon's Corner, Financial Tips for My Generation

Hey there…I’m Gideon Drucker! Simply put, my whole world is about making sure that my generation, the “millennial generation”, has a plan to start saving money and preparing for our financial future. I’m in a unique (and fortunate) position to be able to put my entire focus into helping you build wealth

How did I get to be this lucky? By joining my family’s wealth management firm that’s been around for over 60 years and in its third generation!!

I’ve been working as a financial advisor at our firm for 3 years…but in a lot of ways I’ve been planning for the future, saving money, and becoming a financial advisor my whole life. Once I realized that as a small Jewish kid from the suburbs I probably was not going to be the next Tracy Mcgrady (it was 2000, give me a break) this was all I ever wanted to do…

So you will not find me rating this or that fund’s standard deviation or best practices while using the Monte Carlo simulation…I think I almost blacked out writing that one sentence. 

These posts will be devoted to big picture ideas, money management, saving & budgeting strategies, as well as retirement & investment planning.

The format will always be as follows, each post you can count on having

  • one idea,
  • one lesson,
  • one actionable take-away 

My hope is that they will inspire you to reflect on what’s going on in your own financial world. 

Let’s get it going!
