Professional Advice is Critical to Financial Planning

In an ever-changing society that grows more complex every day, we are all confronted with constant pressures. We must deal with issues related to our careers, families, government, and even our own self-improvement.

Often at the top of our list of concerns are financial matters that range from daily living expenses to retirement. With the coming of the New Year, once again, our financial well-being may be challenged with things we cannot control, such as new laws, government actions, tax changes, stock market shifts, and conflicting media reports on what’s going on. It’s no wonder people are often confused to the point of just not dealing with it and hoping everything will work out for them in the end.

Not a good idea. People just don’t know what they don’t know. Particularly, when it comes to their financial condition now and into the future, they need to sift through everything and periodically review, re-evaluate and adjust their plans, as needed to stay on track. My job is not to sell them something, but to help them make prudent, informed, effective decisions about building their wealth and managing their assets.

A personal advisor should guide the financial planning process to help define what is most important to an individual client and, then, design and implement the plans necessary to secure those goals, regardless of economic and socio-economic conditions. Working with other professionals, such as accountants, estate planners, attorneys, business consultants, a financial planning advisor can help devise plans to take into account savings, expenses, investments, insurance, planned giving, and other factors that should be considered by an individual now and into the future.
