Do you read about the markets every morning? Have you reviewed the new IRS rules this year? Do you know what's in your employee benefit handbook? When was the last time you looked at your investment portfolio? This week? This month? Ever? Working with a financial advisor lets you spend your day doing what you enjoy.
Do you know how much are you paying for your investments? How would a recession impact your savings? Are you paying to much in taxes? Is your business? Not knowing the answers to these questions could cost you. The money you spend on a financial professional is a fraction of what you could potentially earn back.
Will you be able to retire comfortably? Can you afford that new home? Will you be able to put your kids through college? What would happen if you suddenly couldn't work? Financial stress can keep anyone up at night. Answering tough questions about your finances will take these worries while letting you focus on what's important today.
