Your Retirement is Broken
Peter Lynch once famously said that most people spend more time planning their vacations than they do preparing for retirement. Most people hire “professionals” to grow their money instead. But collectively, these advisors have failed us. The average American retires with less than $200,000 in their accounts to live on for the rest of their lives. Because of this dismal statistic, many people wonder if they will even be able to retire at all. And for those who do retire, they worry that they’ll run out of money before they run out of life.
And even worse is that most people believe they are the problem because they were unable to make enough or to save enough to retire. Wall Street wants their customers (you and me) to blame themselves for not saving enough… but the truth is Wall Street has failed us. Bloomberg magazine in an article written in June 2017 titled, “Why You Still Can’t Trust Your Financial Advisor” explains that Americans lose more than $17 billion a year due to a massive conflict of interest between what we pay our advisor to do (grow our money) and what they are actually paid to do (sell more people into their money management solutions).
It doesn’t take a genius to realize that if the primary way for these advisors to make more money is selling…then two things are likely true:
- Your advisor won’t have time to personalize and maximize how your money works for you.
- These advisors are great salespeople…perhaps not as great at investing your money.
It’s time to throw off the shackles of ignorance and the bondage of underperforming assets. It’s time for you to prioritize the time and effort required to take ownership of your own financial future. It’s time for you to create your financial hopes in tangible reality.
You can do FAR better for yourself (once you learn what you need to learn) than your broker would ever be able to do for you. And the great thing about that is that you’ll feel more confident about your financial future and your current financial situation once you do.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_empty_space empty_h=”4″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][uncode_block id=”4146″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
