Beware the Man Behind the Curtain

The finance industry has always made investing seem complicated and mysterious to many of us. As a form of job security, the more dependent their clients are, the more “silver bullet” products and plans can be sold. But like the Wizard, once the curtain is pulled back, investment success can be relatively simple…spend less than you make, have a financial plan with the guidance of someone that understands your goals, and invest in great companies and mutual funds. The first step is to do the simple things that you can control and then ignore the man behind the curtain.
