The television weather report warns of another storm and we run out to buy milk and bread. We purchase batteries and make sure we have gasoline in our cars and firewood for our homes, just in case. This has become a ritual and we do it almost without thinking. Storm preparation is wise planning for the near future.
But how many of us make preparations for the rest of our futures? Many put off financial planning when tasks considered to be more immediate occupy our attention. Procrastination is a normal response when thinking about change. Financial planning with a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) can help alleviate anxiety about the future by setting up plans for education, retirement and other imminent events.
Putting money away for these events creates peace of mind and increases your sense of security. This planning also prepares you for unexpected events which we all encounter in our lives.
Don’t delay. Call Les Merritt, CFP, today at (919) 269-8553 to get help with your financial planning. You can be prepared for more than the weather and see clear skies ahead for you and your family.
