How Secure Is Your Financial House?
Financial planning is a lot like designing a house. The safe, thick-walled basement is where you store and safeguard your wealth against loss (IN-Case). The main floor (where you eat and relax and spend the most time as a family) represents your passive income and cash flow in retirement, funded using financial vehicles specially designed to provide guaranteed income or predictable cash flow for the remainder of your life (IN-Come).
Once the basement and main floor are completed and fully funded, you can begin to build the top floor with more aggressive investments to grow your wealth (IN-Crease). Working together, these various floors and rooms give your financial plan TrueAssetAllocation™ and TrueDiversification™.
What Makes This
Building a Solid Foundation for TrueWealth is a detailed financial planning framework to help you make appropriate, informed decisions for your future. As a longtime educator, Steve Haroldson understands the mistakes many people make when planning for retirement, and here he presents an easy-to-understand method for financial decision making.
The traditional financial theories are outdated; with uncertainty in the market and underperformance of many pension plans, retirees need a new approach to managing their future. Within the pages of his book, you'll discover an approach that will help you choose from a variety of unconventional financial strategies to reach your retirement goals.
"I thought I had covered all my bases for financial planning. When I read Steve's book, I realized my need for a more personalized and unique financial strategy for my situation."
- R. Fernandez
"Steve's book showed me just how impersonal and outdated the traditional retirement wisdom is today. We sat down for a meeting and before the end of it we had a unique plan sketched out to address my specific wants."
- A. Garabino
