Retirement Planning Does Not Mean Praying to Win the Lottery

While walking the other day you were thinking about your finances, no, I did not read your mind, I just know what people think about. Now then, consider the less fortunate out there, many Americans are drowning in debt, and it’s just awful to see this happen. We see so many folks who are paying interest the wrong way. What do I mean by that? Well, if you properly invest your money long-term for retirement, you can historically get between 6-7% growth on your investments each year.

If you are not doing that now, you need to seek the help of a certified financial advisor. Do not end up like those other folks, who are paying 15-20% or more interest per year to credit card companies. You need to be earning interest for you, not paying them double what you could be making yourself. If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail and in doing so you are sacrificing your future and your retirement years. When you retire you are going to want to feel safe and secure, have your real estate paid off and do some traveling, and you will need some money for medical bills or in-home care too.

Don’t wait on this, it’s far too serious. Instead of simply walking around thinking about it and talking about it, well, it’s time to take action – walk the walk and walk on over to a certified financial advisor. If you don’t know any, ask a friend, get a referral, or go to FINRA.org, but please do not wait until it’s too late.
