Welcome back to the Successful Financial Strategies blog! Lately, we have been taking about life insurance — and talking about it a lot. Life insurance is a crucial means for preparing for the future and taking care of your family. It is a means of protecting your nest egg and can actually provide benefits during your lifetime. To learn more about life insurance and what it can do for you, be sure to check out our past blog posts and talk to one of our financial advisors in Arden or Henderson.

Successful Financial Strategies is a fiduciary financial firm, meaning that we will always have your best in mind because our interests will always align with yours. To learn more about us, visit our website!

Prosperity Usually Doesn’t Just Happen

It’s fun to dream about hitting it big. We’ve all had daydreams about buying the winning lottery ticket or enjoying a vacation in Vegas and hitting the jackpot on one of the slot machines. This could happen to you! You could win a small fortune, but prosperity usually doesn’t happen that way and even those who have made it big by chance or by grit have all had to invest in financial planning services to protect their assets.

Strategic Planning is Everything

We believe so much in strategic planning that it is even in the name of our firm and that’s why we do our best to provide our clients with successful financial strategies. We didn’t name ourselves “Quick & Easy Money” or “Ways to Get Rich Quick.” Though some changes and strategies can provide fast results, that’s not how you should approach your finances for a couple reasons. The first reason is that very few quick and easy means for “getting rich” work and secondly, if they do work, the risk is necessarily high and doesn’t pay off in the long run.

What is Financial Planning?

As we state on our website, “A financial plan is a fluid strategy that begins with the evaluation of your current financial status” and the analysis of potential roadblocks, missed opportunities, and and what is working. When you work with our financial advisors, we take your entire financial situation into account. We look at your current net worth, tax liabilities, asset value and allocation, retirement plans, savings, and so much more. Because we provide holistic financial planning, we offer financial planning as well as other planning services that can focus on one specific part of your financial strategy. We offer:

  • Annuity strategies
  • Financial planning
  • Life insurance planning
  • Insurance services
  • Social security planning
  • Tax planning
  • Wealth management

Isn’t Budgeting Enough?

Unfortunately, budgeting is not enough. Budgeting can help, but it can’t always fix underlying problems. How so? You may be paying too much in taxes. You may have a life insurance policy that you aren’t fully utilizing. You may be planning to collect on social security too early. If you have any of these issues, budgeting could be a bandaid to a bigger problem.
