Equipping Points:

[1:06] “When only one side of a story is heard and often repeated, the human mind becomes impressed with it.” – George Washington

  • If you watch too much news, then you only get one side of the story from the “Wall Street machine”.
  • Keep in mind that you might be listening to a marketer.
  • What’s right for someone else might not be the best fit for your situation. For example, someone with a billion dollars does things differently than someone with half a million.
  • You have to understand who the message is for, and who it’s coming from, and what they are trying to get you to agree to.

[4:08] “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” – JFK

  • From a financial advisor standpoint, this is what a fiduciary is supposed to think about.
  • Advisors should be client-focused and asking what is right for the client instead of just doing whatever is going to generate the most revenue.
  • A lot of people in retirement just want someone who is going to look out for them and their best interests.

[6:54] “Think about every problem, every challenge we face. The solution to each starts with education.” – George Bush

  • Education is the foundation of everything Eric does for clients. The first two meetings of the planning process are designed to help educate you about risk and what a properly designed portfolio looks like.
