What could you achieve if you planned better? CFP Taylor Schulte shares two stories told by financial planners about clients who achieved extraordinary results by creating and working on their financial plans. We dive into how you can dream bigger and do more with just a few better tactics.
In today’s headline, we dive into whether having a million dollars in your 401(k) equates to a secure retirement or not. After 2022’s rocky market performance (and accompanying investor behavior), data released by Fidelity Investments, the largest provider of workplace retirement plans, show a steep drop in the number of people with over a million dollars in their plans. How steep? Tune in to find out.
Doug will educate us about what it takes to become a bonafide CFP® and we’ll throw out the Have Lifeline to Will who has a question about starting his career in the financial planning business.
Deeper dives with curated links, topics, and discussions are in our newsletter, The 201, available at StackingBenjamins.com/201.
