Though I have never personally ran a marathon, I could imagine that there are moments during the race that you feel the best you ever have! Then, I am sure there are moments you are questioning your logic for entering yourself into something so painful and fatiguing. You may be wondering at this point why I am even discussing running on a financial radio show. I am here to tell you that running a marathon is a lot like saving for retirement.
There will be high points. There will be lows. The key is keeping yourself going so you can get to the finish line known as retirement and be able to live the retirement that you want. John McCann and Michael Clark have devoted their careers to helping people just like you plan and prepare for the marathon of investing for retirement. Tune in this week as they both help to cut through the noise and nonsense about money and give you the tools you need to build wealth, invest for the future, and put a plan in place.
Quote of the day: “Like the marathon, life can sometimes be difficult, challenging and present obstacles, however if you believe in your dreams and never ever give up, things will turn out for the best.” – Meb Keflezighi
