The political and economic noise this year has been deafening. We might not remember but it is deafening every year. The media makes money selling hypothetical, catastrophic predictions. And every year I chant the same mantra over and over – ignore the newspapers, ignore the television and ignore the radio. The predictions are guesses tempting us to make emotional changes.
When it comes to money, making decisions based on emotions is not a good thing.
One of my roles as a financial adviser is to be a coach to help manage obstacles that arise. The best athletes have a coach to increase their odds of winning and many successful professionals rely on the assistance of a coach.
Why? They understand that the wisdom of an experienced professional, combined with the discipline to forge ahead during challenging times, can keep them on the right track.
My role is to provide the expertise, perspective, and encouragement to keep you focused on your destination and in your seat when it matters most.
With this in mind, I invite you to watch the 2-minute video ‘Tuning Out the Noise’ created by Dimensional Funds. Enjoy.
