Everyone Needs a Financial Planner

Do you make a lot of money? Barely scraping by? Three kids in college and aging parents in a retirement home? Living free and single in the big city?  Each one needs a financial planner.

"A financial planner is too expensive!" The cost of going without one is even higher.  Without a financial plan, hiccups in life became catastrophic emergencies.  Dreams become regrets.

More importantly, a financial planner is free. All it takes is time.  Time spent reading personal finance books, blogs, and advice.  Time spent building better habits and growing your savings.  Time spent thinking through what you want in life and what you need to do in order to achieve those goals.

What are your goals in life? A financial plan is how you get there.  A financial plan will help you:

  • Put food on the table
  • Get out of debt
  • Pay for school
  • Buy a dream home
  • Get a tattoo
  • Open a business
  • Vacation in Europe
  • Minimize taxes
  • Work less and spend more time with family
  • Take a sabbatical
  • Retire early
  • Seek regular medical treatment
  • Protect your family from catastrophe
  • Give back to your community
And so much more.  

Who is the financial planner in your family? 
What financial goals are you currently trying to achieve?
