EisenhowerWell it is the time of the year to try and plan ahead. Sometimes we do business with more financial institutions then is really necessary and it can help to consolidate some accounts. Old retirement plans where you used to work, or from distant cities where you used to live or travel to. Planning is essential. Here is a quote from D. Eisenhower “In preparing for battle I have always found that plans are useless, but planning is indispensable.” Keeping as much of your money as legally possible can be a real battle that you want and need to win.

Remember when investing you are making decisions for the long term. Don’t be swayed by short term news and events for they will rapidly pass into history. Remember your investing plan sell if your plan calls for it but beware of short term events. Once you sell, you must then make a decision as to what to buy and when. Plus you have now incurred additional expenses and possibly tax consequences.
