Opportunity to reassess…….and to make changes. December 13, 2010Posted by shaferfinancial in Uncategorized.
I have to admit the last few years have been pretty scary. And in scary times you see the wildest ideas gain currency. I never would have thought that the libertarian ideas would have gained so much “street cred” on the internet. Nor, would I have thought that the doomsayers would have anyone else listening to them. But, the worst recession since WWII has brought on all this. I will remind my gentle readers that it wasn’t so long ago that there was many folks saying that the Dow would be below 2500, and the S & P 500 index would be below 300. According to these folks GOLD was the only asset worth owning as real estate would be worthless.
But the truth is the last two years, as trying as they were, was really an opportunity to make changes, to figure out what was important to you and what wasn’t. An opportunity to reassess your financial life including your investment strategy.
As we head into the new year, a year with much promise, I hope all my readers take the time to really look closely at their lives and make the changes they need to.
And I hope they consider reordering their financial lives to a plan that has a fighting chance to produce a great retirement. New beginnings, new year, new insight…….
