If you’ve followed our company for a while, we began as a traditional financial planning firm.
When I started the company, I was on a quest to provide financial planning to as many people as I could while helping them increase their financial knowledge.
Over the past nine years, I’ve worked with thousands of clients to educate them on managing their finances.
As time passed, my work and my philosophy toward wealth creation evolved.
What I initially believed when I left corporate wealth management and what I think today are not the same.
For example, I used to believe that you should work hard, save money in your retirement account and when you turned 65 or 70, start withdrawing the money to “enjoy life.”
I call this the “work now and enjoy life later…maybe” approach.
While that may work for the average person and it’s an ok approach to reaching your financial goals.
It leaves a lot of room for improvement.
I can’t tell you the number of clients and people I’ve encountered in my almost two-decade career as a Financial Advisor who followed the “work now and enjoy life later..maybe” approach only to realize at age 65 or 70 that there’s a good likelihood they will outlive their money.
What was missing in the equation?
What did they AND I get wrong?
True asset diversification.
Reaching your financial goals includes investing in assets beyond the stock market.
You have to think outside the box.
You must include assets like real estate, precious metals, collectibles, life insurance, and more.
Not only does this help you exponentially grow your wealth, but those assets can act as a hedge against inflation.
Next week, I will share six alternative assets you can invest in today, not only to protect yourself against inflation.
But to build meaningful wealth.
Does this resonate with you?
