Market news got you down?  Not sure you want to go to the mailbox? Afraid your 401k has turned into a 201k? Afraid you’ll have to start searching for spare change in your couch to pay for college tuition?

Times are scary. And it is in times like these that all of our preconceived notions and assumptions get tested.

And they have been sorely tested these past 15 months or so.  Who is one left to believe or in what to believe?

This is why it is important to get back to basics and retake control over those things one truly can control.

It is in this spirit that I am launching a weekly series of teleconference calls starting next Wednesday (March 11).

During these trying times it may be easy to give up and say that there is nothing one can do.

But that would be wrong.  There is plenty you can do to get back on track.

First thing is to take control over those things you can control.

And to do this I will outline a Road Map and review the basic Rules of the Road.

 

Aimed at getting people back on course and in control of their finances, the Financial Focus Road Maps series will explore a variety of topics that may be impacting your personal bottom line.  Investing is only one part of a successful financial plan.  Yes, we will address investing strategies for volatile markets but we will also get back to basics. This series will also focus on issues like estate planning for newly married couples, elder care finances, maximizing cash flow to pay off debt, paying for college without busting what’s left of your retirement nest egg, evaluating employer-sponsored benefits, choosing insurance and understanding mortgage options in the new financial order.

 Financial Focus – Navigating through Volatile Times” will be the inaugural topic of this free recurring series starting Wednesday (3/11/09) from 7 PM to 8 PM. In this program, I will highlight the low- or no-cost strategies you can implement RIGHT NOW to protect what you have and map your fresh start.  

Please join me. 

This is a FREE series but space is limited to the first 95 participants.
