The Game Plan
Have you ever watched a television show or a movie and seen a financial scene that doesn’t reflect reality? It looks great on the screen but you know that your experience was nothing like that.
This episode of The Retirement Playbook will discuss that exact thing. Dale is presented with scenarios that have been common at some point in time. He’ll tell us whether or not this is a still a thing with his clients. A couple of these might be movie storylines but others are serious investing conversations.
Let’s try to set the record straight on this show and give you some real-life examples along the way.
