A message from Greg:
Real financial planning is neither difficult nor complicated. And yet it seems that the entire financial services industry is committed to convincing us that it is. There is a seemingly endless stream of information from financial firms and the media that tells us you need to find the best mutual fund, or the perfectly structured tax shelter, or get into a hedge fund, or buy gold, or…, or…or… It’s amazing that anyone in this country actually builds and maintains wealth. The sad fact is that most do not. But it does not need to be that way for you.
In the 30+ years that I’ve been in the financial industry, one thing has become evident. The path to financial freedom begins with having a very clear picture of where you are, where you want to go, and how you are planning to get there. Of course how to get where you want to go will take some figuring, but even there, the fundamentals are pretty straight-forward and uncomplicated. Then it’s just a matter of sticking to your plan through thick and thin and reviewing everything every so often. Truth be told, sticking to the plan is where most people breakdown and where working with us can prove invaluable. There is a lot of wisdom in the statement “we are our own worst enemy.”
