To My Readers,
There is a lot of noise out there about the state of the markets. The media has done a great job of selling doom and gloom to the general public, and we are hearing about it from clients and prospects.
I think this is very interesting for one simple fact.
Despite all the negativity you may hear, the S&P 500 is up +19% year-to-date.
Fear, negativity, and sensationalism are highly profitable in the media landscape. They generate clicks, views, and revenue but will do nothing to help the average person/investor.
If you listen to headlines and pundits, you’ll be sitting on the sidelines waiting for “things to get better” and missing out on actual growth.
Here are some investing truths to remember:
· Markets NEVER move and behave in a straight line
· The media noise will ALWAYS give us a reason not to invest
· The BEST strategy for investors is to align your investments with your goals, timeline, and values. Forget the noise and stick to this strategy and discipline.
If you have concerns or questions about investing or the markets, please don't hesitate to reach out for a conversation.

Do You Have Balance in Your Life?
Life is about finding a balance ⚖️ between enjoying the present and planning for the future.
