Most Americans spend more time planning their vacation than planning their financial future. I understand why. There are more and consistent resources for vacation planning than financial planning. With financial planning almost everyone in the financial industry is trying to sell you something and their plan centers around the product on which they make commission.
You can solve that problem. You should engage a qualified professional to create a plan, not pitch a product. You know, someone who works for you, not the financial sales company. You can rest comfortable that the advice is objective and in your best interest.
