When I began my daily radio show some 8 or 9 years ago, my mother asked what I would talk about each day. I responded there was no shortage of financial planning issues to address. And, although mom is always right, on this occasion, I proved her wrong (sort of). Everyday the news is full of things that affect your money. In fact, there are sometimes so many news items I wonder if there is a master plan to distract us from our own individual plans crafted with the benefit of reduced emotional tension. My goal in this blog, my radio show, my podcasts, and my social media posts is to distill the news that matters and help us (you and me) stay true to the plans we’ve promised ourselves.
