1. Patience in Financial Planning

    Patience is a vital tool in financial planning. As I mentioned in my last post, I want to do more with Faith-based topics in financial planning.  As we look again at the Fruits of the Spirit from Galatians 5, let’s focus on patience. In a world where we can have anything our hearts desire almost…

  2. Three Ways to Fight Inflation from Home

    Inflation is nothing new.  We have all heard our elders say things like, “In my day I could buy a loaf of bread for a nickel.”  Nickels and other monetary units are still the same as they were then, but the purchasing power has declined. In essence, this is what inflation means.  When we have…

    Financial Planning in Pikeville, North Carolina Pikeville, North Carolina is a small town with about 700 residents.  Pikeville is in Wayne County, which has approximately 120,000 residents.  Being a financial planner in Pikeville brings an interesting challenge because it’s not so much about having more money as it is about maximizing the money we have. …

  4. Social Media and Investment Research

    We can all agree that social media has become the Wild West of the internet.  For those of you who have never seen a Western movie, imagine cowboys playing cards in a bar.  Suddenly, one calls the other a cheater, then the table flips over and they all start shooting each other.  Thanks to my…

  5. Don’t Get Left Behind!

    My family moved to Pikeville in 1980.  My sisters were born in Florida.  Dad was told that in order to meet people in Pikeville they needed to bank at a certain bank, attend a certain church, and even vote for a certain political party.  I wasn’t born until 1982, so I can’t verify the story….

  6. Investing Like a Tortoise

    Animals play a role when we talk about the stock market.  If you’re a bull, or “bullish,” then you believe the markets will rise.  A bear, or “bearish” investor, believes the market is going down.  With the current market reactions to the Coronavirus Pandemic, I’m reminded of a story involving two other animals.  Have you…

  8. Playing Not to Lose

    I have always been competitive, which led to life-long love of sports.  I enjoy watching athletes develop into amazing teams.  Of course, coaches and front office staff have to manage expectations of players and fans, but every athlete has the internal desire to be the best and to win.  That fire inside helps athletes achieve…

  9. The Millennial vs. The Account Minimum

    “I would work with you, but my finances are a mess and I don’t have enough money to plan with.”  I actually think people in this situation are exactly who need the services of a financial planner.  I believe that at its core, financial planning is about building a future, not just managing assets.  If…
