Retirement Resources President and Investment Advisor, Dave Boike offers a few ways readers can attempt to ease financial anxiety during the pandemic while making one’s physical health and well-being and that of loved ones the top priority.
Auburn Hills, MI — June 01, 2020— Dave Boike, President of Retirement Resources and co-author of The Ultimate Success Guide with Brian Tracy, published a new article on the company website entitled, “Regarding Physical And Financial Health And Well-Being in Uncertain Times.” Mr. Boike knows financial well-being is rocky for many now and offers just a few anxiety relieving ideas.
“Without question,” says Boike, “your physical health and well-being as well as the health and well-being of your loved ones is a top priority during this global pandemic.” He goes on to add, “Knowing and following the safety protocols are important to maintain safety, such as frequently washing hands and observing social distancing. If your health is already compromised, you have to take extra precautions.”
Boike emphasizes, “As we navigate through this coronavirus, your financial well-being is certainly not your top priority. It definitely must take a seat below physical well-being.” He goes on to add, “In the midst of the current economic uncertainty and turmoil, it is important to have financial priorities. Truth is your financial well-being may require that you establish new priorities.”
According to Boike, “One thing that could help to ease your financial anxiety is to revisit your wealth plan with your professional wealth manager or financial planner. You can schedule a virtual meeting, or you may even be able to accomplish your goals with a phone call.” He states, “Even if you have a solid plan, depending on your asset allocation, you should be prepared for your net worth to take a hit. But as long as you stay invested, it doesn’t become a realized loss until you sell. So if you can, hold firm.”
“If you are retired or nearing retirement,” says Boike, “it might be a good time to conduct a retirement income check-up and revisit spending priorities. Having a liquidity plan that includes access to a line of credit could be a vital safety net.”
