Radio Show

Part of our planning process calls up a client’s original plan to review progress towards goals. By defining the outcomes desired, decision making and corrective actions are guided by the objective instead of emotions. This week’s program dives deep into the victories and mistakes of real investors.

Questions for this week:

What is your intended outcome for the portfolio?
What should I do?
Should I buy gold?
Should I buy bitcoin?
Should I buy Lyft or Uber?
What does “lower for longer” mean in finance?
Where are the bargains for 2019 and 2020?
Speaking of worry! It is tax time. Just so you know, if you are a McGowanGroup client, congratulations, your CPA will get everything they need in a secure document vault link with team support for their questions.
