Our Fresh New Seminar Sets Out to Prove
that Personal Finance Can Be Fun!
Ric Edelman wants to prove that learning about personal finance doesn't have to be boring. So, this brand-new seminar introduces you to three important topics: wealth creation, life insurance, and estate planning.
Designed specifically for you if you have little knowledge of these topics, this seminar offers a basic overview. It's meant to be more entertaining than informational -- even though you will learn important concepts behind the three most important elements of personal finance (how to create, protect, and distribute wealth). In addition to being fun, the event is meant to pique your interest in learning more about these topics and personal finance in general.
And to make good on the promise of fun -- there will be no references to the Fama-French Three-Factor Model, no actuarial spreadsheets or allusions to Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts and other such matters. Instead, you'll get an introduction to the three core concepts essential to personal finance success: wealth creation, life insurance and estate planning -- delivered in plain English with lots of audience participation and laughs.
Tuition is $25 and up to four guests are free -- and we encourage you to bring kids ages 12 and up! Come for a truly enjoyable and enlightening program. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America. All attendees will receive a free copy of Ric's #1 best-selling book, Rescue Your Money, and Edelman Financial advisors will be on hand to answer all your questions. And if, after attending, you feel the content was too basic for you, we'll happily refund your tuition -- because your satisfaction and enjoyment is our sole concern.
Common Mistakes in the College
I've long argued that a college education is an investment. But there are many factors that go into that investment, not the least of which is how you pay for it. This well-researched article by clients of our firm who operate a tutoring service exposes common mistakes parents and their college-bound kids make when deciding where -- or whether -- to attend college and how to avoid those mistakes.
The Dow's High: What Does It Mean?
You're certainly aware of the fact that the Dow Jones Industrial Average set a new all-time high last Friday (March 8, 2013) of 14,397, and many celebrated. But what does this really mean for you and your portfolio?
Today, investors are asking a simple question: Does the Dow's new record mean it's time to establish or increase holdings in stocks, or is it time to sell? This letter will answer that question for you.
