Dreaming Again

I recently had one of the longest client meetings in my career (almost 3 hours long) with a couple whom we’ll call “Joe and Shirley”. Throughout their entire life they had shrunk down their goals little by little to meet their income until they had completely lost their dreams. I spent almost the entire meeting...

How to Succeed in Retirement

In this show, I’m going to put retirement in a different perspective than maybe you’ve thought about. When you’re in your 20s or 30s, it’s all about the money. “We’re never going to die” is the thought, so we’re not giving time much thought. On the other hand, if you’re over 65 and on the...

Stock Market Cheerleaders

Should I Sell My Stocks?

For the last year, the number one concern on people’s minds has been inflation. It’s important that an economy has some inflation, but you don’t want it to be too high. However, you don’t want it to be too low either. Somewhere around 2%-3% is good. But inflation has crept up to the mid 6%...

Investment Math – TR = I + G

Got your thinking caps ready? Time for some investment math: Total Return = Income + Growth When you invest for growth, it’s all about capital appreciation and your entire goal is to buy low and sell high. You could make a lot of money, but you could also lose a lot of money. When you...

Unfortunately, many people spend more time planning for their annual vacations than they do for their years in retirement. With studies showing that more and more people are enjoying 30+ years in retirement, that can be a recipe for disaster.

This weekly radio program delivers a plain-language, no-nonsense, educational approach to financial success – each Saturday at 9:30 AM PST on KRLA AM 870 The Answer.

What you don’t know CAN hurt you. Retirement is the most expensive purchase you’ll ever make and because you only get one shot, you better get it right.

At Providence Financial, our passion is helping you make it across the retirement goal line with the confidence you need to win the game!
