Financials Matter

"It's Not Just About Finance"

Ignorance is Not Bliss…Ignorance is Ignorance

There isn’t a day that goes by without you hearing how someone got in trouble and claimed, “I didn’t realize what I was doing…It’s not my fault…they took advantage of me.” Etc.

In the financial world this is commonplace.

And in many cases, it’s true.

However, too many people get burned in the stock market or by an unscrupulous broker, because:

  • They’re lazy and think that investing in the market is somehow going to magically make them rich.

  • They admit that “It’s too complicated so I just let someone else make all the decisions.”

Then, these “victims” whine about how they got ripped-off.

Let me say this nicely.

Check that!

Let me be blunt.

People who rely on ignorance to cover their mistakes deserve to get burned.

Think about it!

Most people spend more time planning their vacations or Christmas parties than they do with their investments.

Another example is when you buy a car.

Most people spend a lot of time researching cars.  Then they travel from dealer to dealer hoping to get the best deal on an asset that immediately goes down in value when you drive off the parking lot.

And before the sale is complete, they end up spending three hours or more on the paperwork alone.

Yet, these same people blindly turn over their investments (or 401k money) to a system that’s designed to take money from you in hidden fees.

Do you know anyone like that?

Don’t be ignorant.
