We go through life and build our family, our faith, and our careers. At some point, we realize that life is getting more complicated. Our kids are growing up and soon will be going to college. Our parents are aging and we want to be there for them, to help mom and dad cope with a world that is changing very rapidly. We want them to maintain their retirement lifestyle and, we would like to someday live our own retirement dream.
It has not always been easy to save and invest for the future. There are bills to pay, college educations to save for, and unexpected medical expenses. You might have invested over the years, and then you discover that you have a collection of investments, and not a well-balanced portfolio. You realize that you may need help figuring all of this out. You don’t have a plan. You need a plan if you are going to be effective at attaining your financial goals.
