Stewardship Well Done Journey

Step 8 – PLAN

Roadblock #1 – I’m not rich.

Do you remember Richie Rich? He is a comic book character whose middle name is literally a dollar sign (Richard “Richie” $ Rich, Jr.) Richie has a dog named Dollar (a dalmatian with dollar signs instead of spots) and a friend named Mayda Munny. Wikipedia describes Richie as “the only child of fantastically wealthy parents and is the world’s richest kid. He lives in an expensive mansion and owns at least two of everything money can buy.” The comic book and cartoon series perpetuated many stereotypical ideas about the rich, but also tried to break down some common misunderstandings.

One common misconception that persists today is that you need to be rich to benefit from a financial plan. Anyone with a serious desire to bring all the pieces of their financial puzzle together and work toward financial wholeness can benefit. A financial planner can help you sort through the mountain of financial information available and determine what best applies to you; offer an objective third party opinion; answer questions when life takes unexpected turns; and help you stay on track by avoiding emotional financial decisions.

If you are ready to do your financial homework with the help of a trusted guide, consider engaging with a financial planner. You may not have a butler, chauffeur, and supersonic jet like Richie Rich, but you can have a financial plan!
