Ep 7: Are You Suffering From Pandemic Paralysis With Your Finances?Investing
On This Episode
With all of the changes in the market and in the workplace lately, have you avoided making financial decisions? Are you still working toward your financial goals or are you facing a bit of pandemic paralysis?
The pandemic has caused people to have a lot of emotional reactions, including the desire to stay still and hope for the best. Are you suffering from pandemic paralysis when it comes to your financial decisions? On this episode of Saving with Silverman, Mark talks through several areas in a financial plan where you might be feeling stuck.
Are you tempted to put your 401(k) on hold while the market is so volatile? Or have you been meaning to put together a financial plan for some time but now feel like there are too many changes happening to plan for the future? Coronavirus has definitely caused economic changes across Arizona and may mean you’ll have to be more flexible with your plan, but it’s crucial that you have someone look over the numbers with you.
You might be concerned about retirement, especially if you had planned on doing so this year or in the next couple of years. Are you scared that you might have to put that off? Knowing where you stand and having a direction is key to making the right decision next.
Finally, would you rather just bury your head in the sand and just ignore your accounts altogether? Instead of doing that, get advice from a financial advisor in Tucson or a second opinion to make sure you look at your long-term financial goals.
