“He who asks a question is a fool for five minutes; he who does not ask a question remains a fool forever.” – Chinese proverb
There really are no stupid questions.
We’re told this all the time but I don’t think most of us truly believe it. As a result, we leave many very important questions unasked. When your planning for your financial future this can be, at best, an inconvenience, at worst, financially devastating.
Ask lots of questions. Be the four year old that isn’t afraid to ask ANYTHING. Whether you’re currently in retirement or just beginning to plan for it, asking lots of questions will empower you to find solutions.
The mission of this blog and my podcast, PLAN WELL INVEST WISELY, is to help you make smarter financial decisions and answer those retirement planning questions that keep you up at night.
