The more things change, the more they stay the same

We've all heard this proverb and have all probably used it, but what does it mean in your everyday life?

This week, I went on line and bought tickets, posted pictures and checked bus schedules - all activities that a few years ago would have required phone calls and / or a trip out of my office to accomplish. I spoke to a friend half way around the world on Skype for nothing (versus the expensive long distance phone call of 15 years ago). I could go on - we all have examples from our day to day lives.

The fundamentals of financial and estate planning have not changed. We are all concerned that we might outlive our money or whether we can maintain our standard of living for ourselves and our families - no matter what happens. What have you done about this? Many people bury their head in the sand and hope that nothing serious happens. Some people have reviewed their plans with a professional and know what would happen if - and many of these people are pleased to learn that they are in a much better position than they thought they were in.

Would you like to be one of the people who knows for sure? I am offering a confidential, complementary review of your current situation along with suggestions on how to ensure that you can maintain your lifestyle - to my clients and readers of this newsletter
