T = THANKS. TGIF stands for “Thank God It’s Friday.” I cannot proceed without saying a truly heartfelt THANKS to all of my clients, friends and readers who inquired as to mine and my husband’s well-being prior to and amidst Hurricane Florence. It blew me away (no pun intended) to know that so many people were thinking enough of me to call, email or text all weekend long to know that we were OK!
As a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) I manage people’s financial lives. I learn about what is important to you, what worries you, what and who you love, what mistakes you want to avoid, what mistakes you made in the past, what dreams you have for yours and your family’s future, what is your idea of “financial peace”…and how we can work together to make financial freedom attainable. You entrust this information to me. The financial planning process takes focus by you and me. This process also takes research, expertise and discipline on my part and that of my firm, Main Street Financial Solutions.
In times of stress – in the markets or the weather – we can be tested in our discipline or our beliefs. But with events such as the outreach of appreciation that I received in the past week it makes me even more steadfast in my beliefs and in my relationships with you today and in the future.
Thank you for reading and TGIF!
P.S. Regarding last week’s TGIF 2 Minutes, please let me know (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like a copy of the entire Retirement Mindset Scorecard so you can review all the topics and choices, even if retirement is not part of your goals today. The tally of “mindset points” in general can be truly valuable to setting any goal, financial or other.
