Hello everyone, I’m Michael Pellegrino, principal at The Goldstone Financial Group and my brother Anthony and I would like to welcome you to our very first blog. It’s all part of our newly designed website which we hope you will visit often.
At the Goldstone Financial Group we are all about helping you set up a plan that will help you secure your financial future. Recently I had a very interesting discussion with a close friend about developing a plan. In his case it was a plan for their family vacation to Disney World in Orlando Florida. My friend’s wife was the actual planner and she had left no detail untouched. The entire vacation was laid out in a seven-page book, with one page for each day. From the time they would arise in the morning to the time they would have breakfast to the time they would leave for the park to the time they would return from the park to the time they would have lunch to the time they would go to the pool to the time they would nap to the time they would have dinner to the time they would go to bed. Every part of the day was accounted for. Actually he said it turned out to be a wonderful vacation with plenty of time for everything they wanted to do. Instead of just showing up at Disney World and wandering around with no game plan they planned for a successful vacation and that’s exactly what they got. I then asked him about his retirement plans and you know what he said? “Ah…no we haven’t done anything about that. I guess we’ll figure that out when we get there”. I was stunned. This couple spent more time planning for their vacation that planning for their retirement. Actually that is quite common but at the Goldstone Financial Group we can show you how simple it is to develop a plan. A plan that puts a floor under your finances so that you never have losses like you may have incurred back in 2008. All it takes is one phone call and we’ll set up a time to show you where you are headed on your present course and how to make changes if necessary. There’s no obligation and no cost for this review. Let us help you secure your financial future. Our number is 800-353-13-14. Thanks for taking the time to check us out and we hope to see you again.
