To My Readers,
The media does not report plane landings, only plane crashes. Keep that in mind when consuming the news, regardless of your preferred media source. Sensationalism sells, not moderation or calm common sense. It drives clicks and attention but is really helping YOU? Retirements and sound financial plans are not built on headlines or sensationalism. They are built on strong foundations that can weather the storms of market cycles.
Are your foundations strong? Do you need help strengthening them?

LPL Financial had an amazing conference in Denver, CO in July!
It was great to meet so many LinkedIn connections in real life and learn from their experiences as financial advisors. The resources and education LPL provided were second to none and I can't wait to implement what I learned so I can bring more value to my clients!

The odds of those detail were broken down to the following: - 12% of those companies survived - 88% either went bankrupt, merged, or were booted off the list due to underperformance
