Today's Hack

Have you stopped to reflect on yourself and your feelings when it comes to finances? When you meet with an advisor, it’s important to be true to yourself. Today on the podcast, we’ll ask the questions you should sit with when it comes to making financial decisions and a financial plan.

Other Retirement Facts:

What is keeping you up at night? From a financial standpoint, what are your fears? What are your concerns? It’s important that your plan brings these concerns into consideration. Have you talked about these things with your financial advisor?

What is it that you want most? Money is more than just the numbers, it’s about what you value. Are you wanting to prioritize it with family? What about charitable giving? Are you wanting to spend more time traveling in the future? Are you being truly honest when it comes to what you most desire?

What are you biased against? Are there companies you want to avoid or certain products you feel strongly about? Biases aren’t always bad, but it’s important to know where those biases come from. Are these biases properly informed or based on misinformation? What are the real pros and cons behind your decisions?

Finally, what does it mean to be a good steward of your money? What role do you want money to play in your life? What does it mean for you? Are you planning to give it all away or splurge on some fun? What is your end goal?

Hopefully by the end of this podcast, you feel better equipped to answer these questions and ready to apply the knowledge about yourself to your plan.
