Focus, Grasshopper

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]We all lead busy lives. It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day stuff and lose focus on what really matters. One of my jobs as an investment advisor is to bring the focus back to people’s goals. Maybe I need a better term than “goals.” If I start talking about financial planning, or worse yet – budgeting, I will lose your attention before we start. “Goals” might do the same thing. So let’s talk about what you care about. What do you like to do? What do you want to do with your life? You don’t need to have all the answers. I will let you know when I figure out what I want to do when I grow up (kidding of course – I have the day job part figured out).

My job is to make sure my clients are taking the time to think about where they want to spend their time and energy. Then I go crunch the numbers and help them figure out what’s possible. I love the nitty gritty finance stuff that makes a big difference in giving you the life you want. You get to talk about the things you care about and I translate that into ways to make it happen. If you like the finance topics too, even better. I can talk all day about that.

Don’t go through life putting off conversations on “goals” because you feel like you need to have all the answers. To quote Mr. Miyagi in The Karate Kid, “Focus Grasshopper.” Find the time to make sure you are spending your time and money on the things that matter to you, or find someone who can help you with it.[/fusion_text][separator style_type=”single” top_margin=”” bottom_margin=”” sep_color=”” icon=”” width=”” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]
