In 1776 the 13 colonies declared their independence from England. Tomorrow we will celebrate the occasion with fireworks and festivities. Today it’s an excuse to have the family over for a cookout or go to a parade, it’s easy to forget what the day is really celebrating.
Take a moment with me to imagine if 241 years ago those 13 colonies had not declared independence. Imagine if, to this day, we were still under the control of England. We would not have the freedom that we have now. Our history would look very different and I’m guessing, we would drink a lot more tea.
Luckily, this is not the case. We are not ruled by another country overseas. We have the freedom to choose our leaders both small scale and large scale, from mayors to presidents, we have the freedom to let our opinions be heard.
The colonies fought for their freedom because they did not have adequate representation; the government did not consider their best interest. This is an important part of freedom: to share your opinions and have your best interest in mind.
This is also the case in the financial world. When dealing with personal finances, you should have your goals and values heard and kept in mind. Your money should always be working for your best interest. Your financial planner should work for you and represent you. Through this, you can reach financial freedom.
At Financial Strategies, Inc. we always have our clients’ wants and needs in mind. We work to help our clients find their financial freedom. Our advisors get to know our clients and their goals, dreams, and represent their cause.
Freedom goes well beyond the government. We appreciate and celebrate our freedom as a country, but it is not the only freedom we need in life. One should not be controlled by his/her money, rather the money should be controlled by them. At Financial Strategies, Inc. we help clients find financial freedom. With us, every client has control; every client finds their freedom.
