Happy Father's Day

Happy Father’s Day!

Here are five of my favorite fatherly quotes, and their financial implications.

 

#1

#2

#3
Dad taught me everything I know. Unfortunately, he didn’t teach me everything he knows. -Al Unser

Managing your finances and investing for your future isn’t too complicated.  Even a monkey can do it.  If you don’t yet have the knowledge you need, be open to learning it today.

 

#4

It’s okay to be close-minded and stubborn, too!  If you have an investing plan, you should stick to it regardless of today’s passing trend.  More people get in trouble chasing speculative returns than keeping to their plans.

 

#5

The decisions you make day to day accumulate over time.  Make a plan for the future and make steady progress towards your goals.
