April Budgets Prevent Financial Showers

PDF: News Letter 2019-04-05

Do you know the old saying: ‘April showers bring May flowers’? It’s supposed to make us feel better about the wet and gloomy days of April. But it also has meaning, when it comes to your financial strategy too. Sacrificing a bit of the rush gratification that comes from immediate spending can bring in order to your budget.  Remember, investing for the future is a key part of any financial strategy.

Whether it’s deciding to save or invest your tax return instead of spending it on luxuries, getting serious about paying off debt, or budgeting for an upcoming event like a wedding, graduation, or new baby; delayed gratification is challenging, but the rewards can be immense. April is financial literacy month, so now is a great time to learn how a financial strategy can help you plan for and achieve both short-term and long-term goals and ultimately lead to a successful retirement.

There are ways we can work together to help you create a budget and investment strategy that will flower in the future.

We are going to close out with a quote from Henry Van Dyke, he said,

“The first day of spring is one thing, and the first spring day is another. The difference between them is sometimes as great as a month.”

If you live here in Reno, that is definitely true.
