My name is Bret and this is my Personal Finance website.
My mission is to encourage, entertain and educate people to take control of their personal finances and to live happy and prosperous lives.
So many of the people I meet are confused with all of the investment options and jargon. They are not sure how to deal with it, so they avoid investing. Or, they quickly pick some mutual funds in their 401K and forget about it.
Unfortunately, the reality of modern life is that everyone needs to be in control of their financial futures. If you are counting on a pension or Social Security for your retirement years, you are likely to be very disappointed. The only way to be certain that you will be comfortable in retirement is to accumulate wealth.
Beyond retirement, investing comes in handy for a variety of other purposes:
- Buying a House
- College Funds for your Children
- Emergency / Rainy Day Funds
- Accumulating Wealth
- Pursuing your Dreams
Note: Your investment vehicles, strategies and objectives should vary based on investment your goals.
In future posts, I will elaborate on investment techniques, debt management, hard assets, economics, philanthropy and a variety of related subjects. I will strive to post in layman’s terms, so it will be easy to understand and implement.
