Don’t Neglect the Ordinary Things – Season 2: Episode 8
With everything we have going on in our lives right now, with all the new things we have to deal with, it’s important to keep in mind that ordinary events still happen during extraordinary times. Births, deaths, marriages, divorces, family events — things both in and out of your control — continue. Part of the essence of financial planning has to do with making sure that both expected and unexpected events are properly dealt with. This should be the goal of every financial advisor — to minimize the surprises that inevitably crop up during your lifetime. Yes, extraordinary events do happen, but if you’re ready for them, if you’ve prepared to deal with them, then your advisor has done their job.
