You Don’t Know Enough About Money

Thinking You Know Everything About Your Finances Could Be Costing You Money

Thinking you know enough about the financial realm and your retirement could be costing you years of retirement without you even realizing it.

Hi I’m Bradford Ferguson with Halter Ferguson Financial. And I get it. There is a wealth of information out there and you may already invest or save for retirement yourself.

It’s easy to be fooled into thinking you know enough. But what you don’t know could hurt you.

A 2015 FINRA study study found that over half of American’s – 63 percent to be precise – don’t know enough to safely navigate the financial seas. And if you keep thinking that you’re the exception to that rule, you’re likely gonna drown in those deep, and sometimes murky, waters.

So how do you ensure that you know enough to not make harmful mistakes?

You don’t.

Seriously. You don’t. You hire someone to handle it for you. And sure you could be thinking, “You’re just saying that because you want me to hire you.” But let me ask you… When you need a lawyer do you go out and learn how to become a lawyer. No, you hire one! So why do you expect to know how to invest properly and save for retirement when the financial landscape is so complicated?

So let me ask you, do you really want to keep believing you know enough to not get hurt. Knowing that there’s a lot out there that you don’t know. That you don’t know how or if, or it can or will affect you? Or do you want to hire yourself a professional who can be your fount of information? Who can help keep you safe.
