Money Matters: It’s More Than A Feeling

October 15, 2021


Saving enough for a comfortable retirement and leaving a legacy for the future are the goals many of us have. How close or how far away you are from this aspiration can determine how financially fit you feel.

So tell me, do you feel wealthy?

Brad Klontz, a financial psychologist quoted in the New York Times article below, said: "If you make $50,000 a year, you're one of the top 1 percent richest human beings who has ever walked the earth."

Considering the average U.S. income is $53,490 per year, that information may make the majority of us feel wealthier. It doesn't have to be complicated, and it mainly comes down to keeping a few good habits. Many multi-millionaires have built their wealth using simple and sound money management concepts we all can adopt:

  • saving and investing early and regularly
  • prioritizing future goals over current wants
  • sticking to long-term investment strategies that ignore the day-to-day vicissitudes of the markets

When it comes to investing, everyone has what they believe to be their risk appetite. Some are risk-averse and prefer to invest in relatively safe CDs and money market accounts.

Others invest in the stock market, which may create volatility in their portfolio but has the possibility for great growth. Which are you?

You can find out by taking a risk analysis survey. We can help take some of the guesswork out of determining your personal risk profile.

Take care and keep in touch.
