We are always happy to receive emails from our listeners, and, on this show, Brian shares two different emails, one from someone beginning their financial journey and one from someone who is far enough along in his journey to see the fruits of his labor. The lesson from these listeners is simple: don’t let another day go by without saving for your future. Why are you waiting? Every day that goes by makes it harder to reach your goals. Start today to save and make it a part of your life that is automatic. Every dollar that you put away will help you build an army of soldiers that will work for you in the future.

Downturns over the last 5 years have provided an incredible opportunity to learn core principles about investing. During crisis times, there is a lot of rich material about learning to become a good investor. 2008 was a monumentally historic year for the stock market, but not in a good way. If we could bottle up the feeling we had during the crisis, it would be truly priceless.

Although life insurance may be a morbid discussion, it can be a very important piece of your financial plan. Rates can be very affordable, even for people in their 40’s and 50’s. We believe that it is important to educate yourself by doing your homework and getting a good understanding of what you are buying. Remember that your family is dependent on your income, and it will make such a difference in the lives of those you may leave behind.

The look and feel of the personal financial planner is changing. No longer is an office surrounded by mahogany and crown moldings the only choice.
