At some point during Kindergarten or first grade, the teacher likely sat you down and asked you to conjure up images of your ideal life. He or she probably encouraged you to reach into the corners of your imagination and devise a picture of your perfect life scenario. Did you live in a big house on a farm or did you inhabit a small bungalow on a beach? Did you imagine yourself lovingly surrounded by children or were you a nomadic soul with only a suitcase to rely on for some semblance of personal responsibility? Everyone dreams differently, and rarely do those goals ever truly take the shape we envisioned they would when we were back in grade school. In fact, our grade school dreams probably had more to do with becoming a ninja Jedi master, or a ballerina princess who lived in a beautiful crystal castle, than escaping the hustle and bustle of a demanding job just to relax beachfront with an umbrella drink in hand. However, no matter how your dreams have evolved over the years, it is important to be in tune with the desires you have for the future and to acknowledge and recognize the steps you need to make them become a reality. If you wait too long to take action, you may never get the opportunity to realize those aspirations.
Dreaming is the easy part. Taking control of your money and your financial state is one of the most important and essential steps to help you obtain your goals later in life. One of the most efficient ways to take control of your financial future is to sit down with a trusted financial advisor and discuss your retirement and investment options. A financial advisor can help you strike a an effective balance between paying off existing debt and investing for your future. They can help you maximize returns on your hard-earned investments, and they can help you identify more tax efficient ways to save.
Since everyone dreams of a different future, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for investing, which is why is it wise to seek the guidance and expertise of someone who can customize a plan of action to fit your goals, timeline, and lifestyle.

Benedetti, Gucer and Associates sets itself apart from other financial planning and wealth management firms for several reasons, but perhaps one of the most notable is that it operates as a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA). An RIA is a fee-based fiduciary. A fiduciary is someone whose statutory duty is to prioritize their client’s interest ahead of their own, and they are mandated to disclose any conflicts of interest which might influence an individual’s decision to use their financial services. In layman’s terms, an RIA is someone held to a higher legal standard in addition to their moral ethics. Not all wealth management choose to operate as fiduciaries.
