Thankful for our freedoms

Bleich, Joe C.jpg

True thanks stems from true belief.
Last Sunday was just a couple of days after many of us “formally” gave thanks. It was our collective Thanksgiving Day celebration. We “officially” started a formal recognition, from a governmental standpoint, during the civil war in 1863. The irony of giving thanks to our Father amidst war and turmoil is not lost. As some might have had some turkey served on a platter, we know that the freedoms to worship and gather are not just routinely served on a platter.

Getting home safely goal in retirement planning journey

in
Moore, Byron 2016.jpg

Question: I need to begin looking at my retirement planning seriously. I have a 20-year time horizon. What kinds of things do I need to do?
Answer: Check your calendar, your watch … or maybe your birth certificate. I’m guessing your time horizon is a lot longer than you might realize.
When you say that you have a 20-year time horizon, I’m guessing you mean the time until you plan to retire. So that would make you mid-40s (sorry to give that away).
You feel like you at the base of your own personal financial Mt Everest and you’ve got a mere 20 years to climb to the top. Fine.
