I wanted to post something a little different in a effort to be helpful during uncertain times. First, we are going to get through this, just a matter of how long it will take. Everyone’s situation is different. You may be very secure with employment, paychecks coming in, and just need things to pass. Others may be fearful of what is to come and may need to start planning.

Either way, I think it is important for all of us to have a SHORT and LONG TERM PLAN. Everyone is impacted by what the market is doing right now. How does that impact you? Paying bills, retirement savings, etc. This is NOT to make anyone panic, but rather just being fiscally diligent during uncertain times.
