The U. S. Constitution doesn’t guarantee happiness, only the pursuit of it. You have to catch up with it yourself.
- Benjamin Franklin
During election times, people across this great nation–especially seniors–become engaged in the political process by focusing on the role of government, the principles of our Constitution and whether politicians will deliver on their promises.
People are becoming more aware that guarantees made by the government are shallow at best and more than ever, everyone but, again, specifically seniors, needs to rely on the Constitution to help chart their financial futures.
The Constitution promotes taking personal responsibility for your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, and as trusted financial advisors, we need to lead this charge for our clients. Now, perhaps more than ever, is a perfect time to revisit your clients’ current financial plans to ensure they are focused on the right objectives for the future. Offer your clients sound advice when they just can’t seem to find it anywhere else. For example, persuade your senior clients to live below their means to ensure security in the future.
