Reid Trego, the host of the Money Pig podcast, is joined by Tara Bruce, GIA’s Marketing guru. They discuss goal setting in the new year and emphasize the importance of setting financial goals. They recommend reflecting on the previous year’s goals and determining whether they were accomplished. Tara shares that writing down your goals increases the likelihood of achieving them by 42%. They also mention evaluating investment performance and considering adjustments if necessary. If your investment accounts are not performing in a way that meets your desired goals, you should talk to your advisor to make adjustments to your portfolio.
Setting SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time-based) goals is encouraged. Reed and Tara highlight that many people struggle with knowing what questions to ask or where to begin regarding financial planning. However, they assure listeners that their team at Goodwin Investment Advisory has a heart for teaching and aims to make complex concepts understandable for clients. Some common concerns include anxiety about retirement security and not wanting to be financially dependent on their children during retirement. Seeking a second opinion on one’s retirement plan is recommended as well.
