"The same. <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> It <Silence> <Advertisement> could happen today <SpeakerChange> as well. <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> <Speech_Female> So <Speech_Female> as with all very <Speech_Female> old fairytales, <Speech_Female> there are hundreds <Speech_Female> of different versions of <Speech_Female> Cinderella. And <Speech_Female> in some of them, <Speech_Female> the protagonist <Speech_Female> is actually male. <Speech_Female> But <Speech_Female> although they were <Speech_Female> around and collected <Speech_Female> by the grimms and <Speech_Female> everybody else, they've <Speech_Female> largely been omitted <Speech_Female> from modern day <Speech_Female> modern day fairytale <Speech_Female> books. So <Speech_Female> do you think <Speech_Female> that the story of Cinderella <Speech_Female> is <Speech_Female> an inherently <Speech_Female> female tale or <Speech_Female> one that <Speech_Female> naturally appeals <Speech_Female> to women? <Speech_Female> And do you <Speech_Female> think there is a place out <Speech_Female> there for a gender swapped <Speech_Female> Cinderella? <Speech_Female> Would people <Speech_Female> like it? <Speech_Music_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Music_Female> <Speech_Female> Well, <Speech_Female> I mean, I don't think <Speech_Female> that Cinderella is an <Speech_Female> inherently <Speech_Female> gendered <Speech_Female> story. I <Speech_Music_Female> think <Speech_Female> the bare <Speech_Female> bones of it mean <Speech_Female> that it's easy <Speech_Female> to apply a <Speech_Female> retelling of it to <Speech_Female> a protagonist of any <Speech_Female> gender. <Speech_Female> It's <SpeakerChange> certainly <Silence> been <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> tied up with <Speech_Female> ideas of <Speech_Female> demureness and <Speech_Female> domesticity <Speech_Female> which have been <Speech_Female> coded <Speech_Female> as <Speech_Female> female <Speech_Female> concerns for quite a long <Speech_Female> time, <Speech_Female> but I don't <Speech_Female> think that's really <Speech_Female> what's at the heart of the <Speech_Female> story. <Speech_Female> When you <Speech_Female> get right down to <Speech_Female> the bare <Speech_Female> bones of it, <Speech_Female> it's a rags <Speech_Female> to riches story <Speech_Female> about breaking out of <Speech_Female> a power structure. <Speech_Female> And <Speech_Female> you can, <Speech_Female> if you remove the <Speech_Female> question of <Speech_Female> gender entirely, <Speech_Female> it's about somebody <Speech_Female> who <Speech_Female> feels <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> trapped in a situation <Speech_Female> due to <Speech_Female> societal familial <Speech_Female> pressure. <Speech_Female> And <Speech_Female> eventually manages to <Speech_Female> escape that. <Speech_Female> And I don't think that's <Speech_Female> necessarily an <Speech_Female> inherently <Speech_Female> feminine experience. <Speech_Female> It would certainly <Speech_Female> look different for <Speech_Female> protagonist <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> of a different gender, <Speech_Female> but personally, <Speech_Female> that's something <Speech_Female> I'm really <Speech_Music_Female> excited to see. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Once <Speech_Female> I finish my TBR <Speech_Female> because I have to <Speech_Female> get through the pile, that's my <Speech_Female> rule. <Speech_Female> I really want to read <Speech_Female> cinder the fireplace <Speech_Female> boy <Speech_Female> by Anna model <Speech_Female> because that's a Cinderella <Speech_Female> retelling with a <Speech_Female> trans masculine protagonist <Speech_Female> and I'm really <Speech_Female> excited to see how that would <Speech_Female> play out because <Speech_Female> I think that would <Speech_Female> bring a really <Speech_Female> fresh perspective, <Speech_Female> which I'm <Speech_Female> not personally familiar <Speech_Female> with, but I really want to know <Speech_Female> more about and <Speech_Female> yeah, I just think that's a <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> really interesting take <Speech_Female> <Advertisement> and I definitely <SpeakerChange> want to see <Silence> more of that kind of thing. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Well, there you <Speech_Female> are.

"The action. That makes sense. No, totally. And when you think about some of the Cinderella versions we've read, it's almost like the wishes just drop in her lap. She sits there crying and then the fairy godmother appears. But obviously in some of the older ones, you have her washing the nut tree every day with her tears. Her dead mother's soul resides and things like that. And asking for stuff and being a little bit more proactive, but we seem to have lost that. Whereas like you say, posters has always been a very agency fueled character. So hopefully, we'll be seeing a bit more of more to Cinderella's in the future. When you were talking about that, Joe, I was kind of sitting here seething and just what have I done? No, because I was agreeing with you because it really irritates like more than your title. It pisses me off that Cinderella is rewarded for just sitting there and taking. Taking shit, basically, because if she were a bloke and you know, he was just put upon or whatever. He would not be rewarded for that. He would be ridiculed. He would be, you know, it would be like, why haven't you taken the bull by the balls and just gone for it? Why haven't you done something about your situation? And that really gets rubs me the wrong way. I think I also really like that you said take the ball by I was going to go the horns and then she was like, no, the book was all by balls, but Megan's version of the famous phase. I do totally agree actually. I think that's a really, really interesting point. And just another double standard to heap on our rather enormous stinky mountain of double standards in narratives. I mean, it's just terrible, because it just means that when you have a female protagonist in a situation like Cinderella is in..

"As squeaky clean, I guess. If she just came from absolute poverty and made good on something, well, yes, you can obviously be treated appallingly and obviously people in her position were treated badly. But it might not have enough bitterness to drive them or maybe make the maybe it's because of that sort of having lost something. Something she had, and it was taken away, made her more inclined to deal with the devil as such. Oh, absolutely, yes. I really wanted something that would make it personal for her. I wanted her to feel as though not just that something that she just didn't have something. But it had been taken away from her specifically and maliciously. And that formed a huge part of her motivation as she went through the book. And I think, as you say, if she was just somebody who came from abject poverty and just sort of slowly worked her way up, I'm not sure if she would have had quite that same edge of bitterness to her. Talking about bitterness and satisfaction and what role that plays within a novel. I was thinking about how you've drawn Cinderella and faustus together. And while I was reading the book and thinking up some questions, I was thinking about the different types of protagonists that they are. Whether or not she has riches in the first place. Cinderella at the point in the novel starts has nothing and is granted riches as a ways to elevate her social standing and secure her future. In contrast, we have faustus who already has everything and is still satisfied and in one reading I found of it just that they said, well, fastest is bored, so he makes a deal with the devil, which is very different to Cinderella. So how did you feel approaching that in your novel? And what do you think this tells us about gender inequality and archetypal stories such as these? When it comes down to gender inequality in archetypal stories, the key area that satisfaction and dissatisfaction comes into play with you look at male and female characters is how that reflects on their agency. If you ask me, so if you look at the very traditional types of stories, male characters are kind of expected to have a bit more drive about them a bit more of a get up and go to seek their fortune and all of that sort of nonsense whereas female characters are generally portrayed as much more passive, usually the events of these various stories would just kind of happen to them rather than to be things that they go in, get for themselves. So Cinderella, for example. She's rewarded because she's good and kind, of course, but she has nothing and is lifted out of it. Because, you know, it's somebody else doing the lifting. Her goodness and kindness are things to be noticed rather than things which drive her forward as a character. And in some ways, her being satisfied with her lot in the very traditional tellings of the story is almost like a demonstration of how good and kind she is, which is kind of, that doesn't sit right with me. It really doesn't. When you can trust that with faustus, he starts to play having everything and still being dissatisfied, but you in some ways are kind of primed to expect that from a character like him because the language that he uses to talk about him casually summoning the devil in the play is the same kind of language that you.

"Somebody who does have a certain amount of belief in wishes and things like that and hope that things are all going to turn out to be okay, but absolutely isn't afraid to get our hands dirty if they don't. Well, I think we got the sappy Cinderella. I mean, Disney obviously, but the grimms as well, putting their more moral and patriarchal spin on it. And he's like, oh, we can't possibly have a heroine he's going out and sorting herself out of being smart and clever. She has to be good and she gets her riches through kindness and goodness and little mice. You know. So I think it's really interesting that, you know, in those days the morals were girls are kind and good and nice and we're coming back around to the time when actually girls are the ones that slam their stepmother's heads in the chest and go out and do it for themselves. It's interesting take on society. I mean, going back to what you originally said Charlotte about whether coming to riches kind of fresh versus losing them and then getting them back again. I think kind of links into this because a lot of, you know, as we mentioned before, the Cinderella that most people know, she kind of she gets these wishes and good things happening because she somehow deserves it after all her good behavior and all the things that she's basically put up with. And I wonder about stories where someone has lost the riches and then gets them back if it has kind of more of an entitlement vibe because someone who's had riches presumably in a lot of these stories again, it'd be because their parents or their father or whatever was a gentleman or had acquired wealth, rarely it would be because they were an entrepreneur and self made person. And then if they lose it, it's.

"And then she because she's such a good person and keeps herself in her place. She gets these wishes and it kind of always annoyed me that she wasn't angrier. Yeah. Honestly, same here that was part of the reason why I decided to portray this character in the way that I did because personally speaking, I would find it very hard to be in that kind of situation and not feel angry about it. Because as you say, she was treated abominably. And it would be a normal human reaction for her to have negative feelings about that. What really bothered me about the original fairytale was that her goodness and kindness as a protagonist seemed to be demonstrated in the fact that she didn't have those feelings or at least that in the bare bones fairytale we didn't get to hear about those feelings and that really bothered me because you can still be a good and kind person and be angry and be sad and want people to treat you better. I'm glad you said that because I'm very angry and bitter and sad. But we all think you're a perfect princess Megan. So it all balances out. Oh, well. Talking about rags to riches..

"Bug and we're back with Mike about a lotta of the hardwood financial group. I am bill seller. And I know you're most means of financial show and probably not a song you expect to hear. Okay, we won't go into the meaning of the lyrics for obvious reasons. But Nikki, six, who wanted to be one of the more famous people of Motley Crue recently told the L A Times and They definitely. Eppard actually reached out to David Lee Roth, Van Halen guy, Mike. Yeah, I am actually. And they reached out to him opening, uh, asking him to be the opening guy on their tour back in the day and and he said, I don't open for bands that I influenced Not knowing for playing well with others that that could have been a doomsday kind of thing for him. But I guess David Lee is doing okay. Listen, I love that Dave is still his same arrogant self at 70 or 71. Or, however old, he is right. I would be disappointed if he stopped being Diamond Dave lutely, and you've got to be true to yourself, Man. That's that's the bottom line. Speaking of that we mentioned the doomsday thing and Market Watch says Social Security's doomsday has been moved up a full year from 2035 to 2034. And that means that a lot of retirees could face as much as a 22% cut in benefits. Now, 2034 doesn't sound all that far away. It's what 15 years. So how do we plan ahead now so that our portfolio can generate more of what we're going to need to live on? In retirement, Mike Well again it goes back to establishing your goals, right? Allocating your investments to meet those goals in a way that you know doesn't cause you to lose sleep at night. You know, And quite honestly, Bill these scary stories. You know, I hear these things all the time, right? I got into this business. I hate that this out loud because I realize my age, but I got into this business 1981. And the news story in 1981 was social Security is going to be dead broken like 2000 and two Okay, That was 20 some odd years ago, and here we are, And you know again, it's the You know, you gotta get listeners and you got to scare people and I think the part of those stories that people tend to gloss over is you know if nothing is done, let me do We really think nothing is going to happen between now and 2000 and 34. Then all of a sudden, Social Security's going to go away. It's pretty unlikely. You're right. I mean, I'm uh, been working as long as you have. I'll just leave it there. Yeah, I've been hearing the same thing. You know, my parents used to talk about it now there's not going to be Social Security for me. You know when I'm retired, and I hit a certain we've been hearing that story for years, so it's not to say that there's not going to be changes, right? Of course, there has to be changed. There's a lot more people. You know, drawing and social security there are contributing, and that in and of itself is a problem. But they but they make these little tweaks along the way. You know, they raised I think you know for you and I are are full retirement age is now 66 9 months or whatever it is where for, you know our parents would have been 65 so they may make those little tweaks, but the reality is people. Do live longer, and they do live active lives longer. It's not just get older, but they stay active much longer. It's I don't think it's that big a deal to work until you know 65 or 66, or 67. You know, God, I'm approaching that now, and I can't even imagine slowing down anytime soon. I feel the exact same way And I think it's more healthy to keep working and stay busy. But I do love the government's, uh, their timelines on things, Right? 72 a half 66 9 months. I'm like, Can we just round stuff? Yeah. I don't know where those things come from. You know, it's It's weird, right? Yeah. I agree with you. I don't think anybody's going to care if it's 66 9 months or 67. I've never understood that like when you buy gas, it's 1 29 9. Why? Why isn't it just that's how old I am. I'm back to a dollar 29 a gallon? Yeah should be just a dollar 30 for crying out loud. Oh, man. So when you do talk to people about this kind of thing, and you're talking with them about looking ahead at the future, it is important to make sure that they are properly allocated like you said, and some other questions you want to ask when you call the good folks at Harwood Financial Group. Let me give you the number. It's 813 to 1297 to seven. Do you actually have a true retirement plan? I say that all the time. It's like a lot of us think we do and then we sit down and we talked with somebody like Mike or somebody on my team. Kind of realized not so much We're not set up as well as we thought we should be, You know, do are properly allocated is the risk versus return where we are good for us in life right now, because that actually changes, doesn't it? Might that risk versus return depending on where you are? On where you are and what the market's doing with the economy is doing. I mean, there are a lot of factors that that are going to affect your retirement plan. You know in the retirement plan itself is not, you know, you don't put it in place and just throw in a in a shoebox and forget about until you retire. I mean, it's a living breathing thing. You know you you've got to tweak it every single year or sometimes more frequently than that, to make sure that you're on target. With what you want to do. It's much easier to make, you know, small, incremental adjustments as you go then to, you know, sort of put it away, and I think about it for five years and then and then realize that you know, something has changed in whatever that is had a compound effect over a period of time. So how often do you do You like to get together with your clients as it once a year? Is it twice a year? Or does that get back to your famous answer of? It depends. It does depend a lot of it as the with what people want to do. What we try to do is stay in touch with people Quarterly. In that may or may not take the form of like a full meeting. You know, I think it's important to get together at least once a year for a substantial period of time and have what we would call strategy session. Let's really sit down and dissect what we're doing where we've been where we're going. You know, we still on track, but a lot can happen. You know, from one year to the next, so we try to check in quota to call him quarterly check in calls. And it literally is just a phone call to say. Hey, we're here. You know, Here's something maybe you should be aware of. Is anything changed for you Do we need to get together? That sort of thing? So frequent contact, But it doesn't need to be. You know this big, cumbersome meeting that sometimes people sort of dread Absolutely So again, the number four Harwood Financial group. Is 813 to 129727813 to 1 to 97 27 give him a call and set up your own meeting. No matter how long you want it to be. So there's a phrase out there called the Sunday scare ease. And apparently, that's a new thing. That means if you're already dreading Monday, that's the term for it.

Everyone in my house gets bummed out about Monday's that Sunday anxiety is known as the Sunday scary and a new report from LinkedIn reveals the scare ease are at an all time high.

That's pearl. You know, she was treated very horribly in death. And you slept a story, saying that people feel like they just want to lie down. That's probably what she was feeling as the sleeping pills took effect. Yeah. And she just happened before that. Yeah. Just a process ad. Yeah, I could see family still lives around here. Their house is gone. Her family still is right here and this is a contentious point with a lot of people. Well, I see a lot of handful of people. Members of her family come here every year every year to go up to a room and pay their respects to her where she died. They're wonderful human beings. They're the sweetest kindest people. They really are wonderful. There are a handful of descendants that say, oh, you know, mental strength hotel profits up a pearl's death. That's such a crock of shed.

It pisses me off sometimes because, you know, there is no desire to profit off of anything here. There really isn't. I don't even own the building. I don't get anything. And if there was a desire to do that, it would have happened already. A long time ago. I mean, I don't think anyone wants to repair this building. And I know I certainly have no desire to do it. I get asked all the time. Would you guys ever reopen the pool? And it's like to what end? Why would we do that? I would not swim down here. No, of course not. Even if this were painted white and fabulous like it used to be and there were somebody playing I could not swim in this bowl. 50 chip and Dale dancer lifeguards. 50 Baywatch girl lifeguards, I don't care what you're into, doesn't none of my business. You still wouldn't get in this thing. There's no absolutely not. And I love to be scared. And I love to be forget this I don't know, it's not even I'm not scared. It just feels so heavy here. It does, and it will take a toll on you. I mean, imagine being in this building 1215 18 hours a day. 6 days a week. Now for 7 years. Yeah, I'm sure. I wonder you want to go to California? Well, yeah, it's weird, though. It's funny because and I'm brutally honest. When I get here in the mornings, all I want to do is leave. But then when it's time to leave, all I want to do is stay. I feel like there's a pull of the meaning that it has on you. Oh yeah, yeah, yeah. There's no doubt about it. The building gets a hold of you. I'm not going to say it's a hold of your soul, because that gives the building some power that it doesn't really have. Yeah, exactly. No, it's not like that. You just care about it. I mean, you know, I talk about pearl and the Jasmine ladies and Cassie and clarence and new harwood and all of these ghosts, these spirits, but in my mind, as they speak about them, it is done speaking about a friend. I can see that the rolodex in my mind. There's personalities associated with each of them.

"Time at Harwood Financial group dot Come, Robert. How are you, Heather? I'm doing great. I'm really excited about the topics today. We got some great stuff to talk about. Well, especially with that late breaking news we got at the end of last week. We definitely want to address what came down from Biden's new tax proposal and get your insight on that. Also, inflation is up. But the Fed says it's not worried. So should we be concerned. That's the question. We want to ask. Also, you want to take enough risk to get a good return, but not so much risk that you lose money will ask Robert about finding a balance a little later on this hour, but first If you know someone who's already retired, go ahead and ask them. What's their biggest financial regret? The people at nationwide Financial did just that, and the number one response was people wish they had done more to prepare for their retirement. Taxes. And Robert, This is something that I know is a huge conversation, particularly right now in your office with the folks. You're meeting there for those of us who are nearing retirement. What can we do now? To avoid this tax regret whether this is such a great conversation because we've been told over the years and years and years when I retire, I'll be in a lower tax bracket and people say Okay, good enough. I'm done and Lo and behold, they retire and probably not going to be in a lower tax bracket, at least going forward. But you could actually be in a higher tax bracket because when you hit 72, you have to take these things called required minimum distributions. Rmds or some people say I'm Ardis, but you're going to add that to your income. If you don't do a little planning, you might actually be in the same or higher tax bracket. So there's this little thing that's been in our Heads forever that I don't think it's true is our you'll probably be in a lower tax bracket in retirement. I can tell you that our firm our clients all have financial plans. I mean, written financial plans, not someone saying, Hey, yeah, we know what we're doing. But it's a written plan, and our goal for our clients is to have them maintain their current lifestyle. Maybe even travel little more in retirement, so You want to keep the income healthy and remember what we're paying is income taxes right? So if you want healthy income, then you're going to be paying taxes, and it's kind of a misnomer to say I might be or probably being a lower tax bracket. So what we do with our clients, and it's becoming very, very important with Biden and his new proposals and this budget he wants to put through and all the new taxes and all this stuff going on. Tax planning is so important right now. And today, this minute we're still under the trump tax. Right? Right, right. Not the new one. But the Trump. And so we could say, Hey, taxes on sale right now that sale me and soon What can I do to lock in the price is and that's what we're doing with our clients were Employing along with their financial strategies, risk management things like that tax strategies because tax is just another risk. You know, you've got your money is invested. You're getting a good return. But if Uncle Sam has taken away part of that return And you're not keeping it. You're just not making as much money. It's very practical. But what most people have not done as they haven't sat down and said, I want to do a little tax planning, and it's not just your CPA as with your finances because your finances in retirement Truly affect your taxes they could out of retirement to prior to retirement, but in retirement for sure, because you're living on income and how you derive that income. Affects how your tax so there's so many things you could do now, let's talk about this is real important item because this is just out Biden's tax proposals Okay and remember, he's saying, Hey, don't worry about it. We're only going to tax rich people. And because most Americans aren't rich, we're really going to pick on the people that were really successful and did really well. Really true, Right? Okay, one of things. He wants to change just all over the news right now, as you want to change something called Long term Capital gains tax. Mm hmm. And that's the tax on your non qualified accounts. Not your IRAs. Not your 41 case, not your Ross. But that regular stock account or investment account. And he says, I want to change the taxes on that only for very wealthy people. The 43.4% right now the top bracket would be 23 the 43. Okay, Now that's a very significant increases, the doubling but only applies to people over a million dollars. So most people say, Well, wait a minute. I don't make more than a million dollars, and that's true. But if you're a business owner and you sell your business, I don't care if you make 350,000 year your way under it the year you sold your business. Almost half of the entire value of your business has gone to taxes. 43.4%. That's how you have to think about it. The other thing is, I don't think he thought about this very well. But he says, Okay, I'm going to raise taxes, long term capital gains and people came up and said, Well, wait a minute. That's not a good idea because people will just save their stocks never change them. And my kids can inherit it, and they get what's called a stepped up cost bases. And so Biden the administration goes. Oh, wait a minute. We can fix that will take away the stepped up cost bases. So when you die, and you leave your home, probably one.

We were hoping to have closed the door on a lot of the extra. We can call it that was 2020. But we're watching things continue to unfold in the capital and 2021. And of course, you have to wonder how that will trickle down and affect us personally in the long term, which is what you work to help folks figure out every single day in your office. And before we get into some of the headlines that I wanted to ask you about today, there are a few things happening locally here with the hardwood financial group that we wanted to talk about. First of all Special guest coming calm a special guest star in the studio with us today one of your team members. Why did you introduce Danny to us? While Danny Danny is here with us in the studio, and he's one of the financial advice? Says with our foreman he's a certified financial planner, which is really a pretty big accomplishment. So Danny has been with us for a while. He comes from another firm, a couple other firms. Typically, that's how it works, and he has settled in with us, and he's one of our really, really great assets. And he's a very smart, intelligent and, frankly, just a good guy. You don't Yeah. Yeah. Makes him a great resource for the team. So, Danny, do you want to say hello to everybody? Very kind Words. Appreciate it. Okay. Say it's Ah, long time listener. First time Yes. Yeah, we'll be here. He's one of the people that meets with our clients and helps out with a lot of things. He's just a great guy. And a lot of the topics we're going to talk about today. You know that he's gonna help us with that. Give us his perspective, because we know two heads are better than one, right? Right? Yep. So it's going to give us some new insight, which is really a great thing for today, because there's so much stuff to talk about. We were actually on when we have talked about a reiterated on this program so many times is the team effort there at the hardwood financial group and your focus on education. Pointing out here, Danny being on the program with us today, He is a certified financial planner, one of the highest certifications that you could get in that field. It's such a great thing to know that you've got folks like Danny on your team there at the hardwood financial group. As you continue to help us all figure out everything that we need to know about our financial plans and our retirement savings plans and again putting a focus and a highlight on your effort to continue to educate. You guys have planned a market update, Zoom call slash meeting. We can call it that's coming up this Tuesday. So tell us about the details of what we can expect from this market update. Zoom call what we can learn from it and how we can participate. Heather, this is really important because this communication and I gotta tell you want one of the hallmarks of our company is is we communicate very well with our clients and With the community because communication is really everything, and so most financial advisers, this is really where they don't do. Well, they're not good communicators, and that just isn't a good thing. It's a customer, the firm so we're very good communicators. We do this kind of thing. Often, but this particular one is really, really important. And so we decided to open it up to our radio listeners as well. And so this is a market update. Our chief investment officer were pretty big firm. We manage a lot of assets. And this is ah, good thing for our customers. And in the meantime, our chief investment officer is a gentleman named Michael Sorrentino. Our listeners may know that name from CNBC or other places. He's Ah, I guess a very well known individual in the industry and he's our chief investment officer, and he's going to talk and give a talk about. You know, there's a lot of things going on. It's a new year for us. We've got a new president coming in. We could expect a lot of changes. I mean, he's already announced. The first thing he's going to do is change a whole bunch of stuff. What Biden comes into office and we're gonna talk about how that might affect your portfolios, your investments and what we're doing to protect our clients or maybe Not even protect with take advantage because we do think there's a lot of good things are gonna happen. It's not all bad, You know, change isn't always bad. There's a lot of opportunities with change. But you need to change right now. This is a change in the world. The change in our country is going to affect your investments. So you need to change you need to think about what does this mean? And what can you do to take advantage of it on one side and protect yourself on the other, Take advantage of it in that. I think it's gonna be a good year in the market. That's Robert Harwood's opinion. You're going to get Michael Sorrentino's at this call that you're welcome. To listen to is going to be a webinar. You could listen on the phone. You can attend the webinar. But you want to do this. We're going to talk about the West called the white blue wave in the sea. It wasn't the dark blue, but it was a light blue away..

"Talks a good game. That's not what's important. What's really important is is that it's going to be a challenging couple of years. Good years. But challenging. We're not over this yet. Businesses have to get back on their feet and frankly, the way our government has spent money they've created other problems with this giant, enormous. Deficit and debt out there, and that creates other issues. So this is a different kind of market, but it's going to be a great market for those that know how to navigate it. It's interesting that you talk about this idea of being an active investor at this particular phase. And you were saying months, weeks, even days, because something that you know, we hear a lot of bad It's almost a four letter word in the financial world. This idea of day trading for a lot of you know, I don't like they traded here. No, no, no, no, no, Nobody Here's the key. You know, with stimulus, we might see a weakening dollar in a weakening dollar, right $2 not worth as much creates inflation. So then I need to make adjustments to your portfolio to fix that problem so that your portfolio still thrives. Or it could be a political situation in the world. Or it could be. You know, the effect of people going back to work. Or maybe Amazon won't do as well because we might be will go to the mall someday. If the ball still open, right, you know, and we need to make adjustments as those things happen and what I see what most people have their and this is what I see 85 90% of time and we'll start with She was gonna ask ourselves this, but I bet you it's what's going on with their portfolio. If they have a financial advisor, the adviser spread the money out over all these different things, maybe a little Europe a little merging markets, some big stuff, some small stuff. Some bonds. And then they don't do anything. I mean, every quarter every year every few months. I mean, I've met with people living with their adviser for two or three years and I look back at their statements, and I figure out the last time they had a change was like, four years ago. That's not the way to manage your portfolio. You need a advisor that will communicate with you. We communicate all the time with our clients. We have Webinars. We have seminars. We have phone calls. We have meetings were constantly communicating about how we're managing what we're doing. We're developing strategies like tax strategies. You know, you've got to think about the fact that this gentleman is our government spending our money. And they're going to have to raise taxes right someday to pay that debt down. What are you doing for tax strategy? You've got to be actively involved in your investments that taxes, the income, the growth. The adjustments. Not day trading. That's terrible. You cannot time markets, but what you could do is invest properly on the market. You could invest in the right part of the market. And frankly, if that part of the market isn't doing well, take your money out and put in the right place. Why would you have dead money? Dead money sitting in the bank dead money, maybe in European I don't know Funds. Whatever that is. This is going to take active involvement on the part of your financial advisor, keeping things properly adjusted as we recover from Cove it but then go into the next issue. There's Always something challenging that we have to deal with this. How the world works. Challenges to me are opportunities. I have no issue, you know, had a lot of challenges and wife and you rise to the challenge and you thrive. There's no reason why we can't do that for you with your investments in your portfolio. How to know what might go wrong and what you need to do to structure your portfolio, and you'd like to just get a meeting. Maybe with me or one of the advisors. We could do a webinar phone call and kind of discuss how we are different than what you're doing. What is it that we do? That's better than what you're doing. I think you're gonna find us a lot of stuff. But we take care of our clients. We watch over their portfolios. We make adjustments when necessary, and we're good communicators. All right, And for somebody who's listening to you on the radio, interested in the things that you're saying right now and doesn't want to talk to you, one of the advisers how can we set up that meeting? Oh, it's so easy. Just give us a call at 866. 87183718668718371 or website Harwood financial group dot com and just request your meeting. I'd like to meet with Robert, one of his advisers.

There's three things that matter most, the most important thing you do to impact your comfort and lower utility bill. Those three things are number one insulation. Number two ventilation and number three air flow, So if you insulate properly, you're now fixing the problem at the source and the way we solve. It is the newest form of installation. That's building code now is put in high performance. Reflective insulation, which was originally invented by NASA announced building code. So once we get that in your home 97% of summer heat stays out 97% of winter heat stays in your 10 12 degrees cooler in the summer warmer and the winner. You run your errand heater 70% last cause you're not wasting any more. That translates to a 44% saving soft utility bill because you're not kicked in your height here. Now because you live in Sacramento Basin and these areas that have a high heat index. Then we recommend improving your second pillar. The ventilation put in a solar attic fan. That's what we do.

If there's too much sediment or a pays says utility workers can turn off the treatment plants intake and switch to water from a large reservoir it became really important for us. To have a heads up for win those changes in water quality were occurring the effects of the burn scar on water quality only lasted a few years but this early warning system is far from obsolete because this year is cameron peak fire has burned another broad sweep of the river's watershed, which means for Collins, again joins the list of western cities learning.

He's the regional director of the Federal Trade Commission for the Northwest Region. Hey there chuck. I'm GONNA so are you. Seeing lots of reports of an increase in scams are the scammers. They're just taking their regular catalogue of Scams and just adding cove in nineteen to it and Is that increasing the answer. To all requested yes That's exactly what's happening. We're seeing lots of reports of scams about liberate. Thousands of reports are scams which in which Cova Nineteen Corona virus being referred to. They are taking their usual catalogue of scams and just tacking on corona virus or Cova nineteen to the for example. The one Sean talked about it they classic grandparent or family. Birds Scam that we've been hearing about for years sometimes traffic accidents or something like that now. They're saying Rovers So Yeah we've seen both. Wow that's That's upsetting to hear so Exactly how okay. Let's talk a little bit more about how this actually works with the grandparent. Scam for example. So you know Sean was saying she was saying she was in the hospital and she needed money if they had continued that conversation. What would happen next chuck? Almost certainly they would have asked for money to be sent They would have said that they need the money immediately. needs to be perfectly overnight faster that the victim can be convinced to get the money in the mail or more likely. Frankly Sent through wire Western Union or these days. They even use know gift cards to send money. like Amazon itunes gift cards That's the way they want to do it. And as soon as the money has sent it disappears and doing impossible to reverse the payment And tumors out the money. It is extraordinarily. You'd think it can't work but extraordinarily common. How often people fall for the scam and my time said one more thing about the scam described in point of an important point important Element in fighting. These scams net is consulting with your friends and neighbors family The example that Sean describe was prevented because the woman who received the call had a family member. She could consult with And that's that's really critical. Find is a lot of people who avoid scams do so because they talk to friends and family members of course in the middle of lockdowns at viruses increasingly hard to do so. They can't further like to fall victim to these games. I had this conversation with my dad. Who's in his late seventies and I told him if somebody calls saying there me and they need money for the emergency room hospital or anything like that or I'm in jail. Just leave. Just tell them now. You can stay there and we'll just go ahead and because that's not gonNA happen. I'M NOT GONNA call you that way. You know our tell them. Oh call your sister and she'll take care of it Which I think is you know I mean I. It seems weird to have a a scam plan. Sean have you talked to folks about that like having conversations with your family members in advance as a preventative measure. Not so much you know like having you know like a plan like a strategy if when whatever and I think because one of the challenges is there are just so many different ways to scam. Somebody and like Chuck mentioned people just continue to Kinda easy same scams. They just always a new twist to them. So you know it's just it's difficult to kind of create a plan because scams can come in so many shapes and sizes and like You know we talked about earlier. Anybody can be a victim of a scam. Anybody can be caught essentially Scam proof impossible. I don't care how much education you have and I don't care how many plans you create can never completely scam proof yourself. And that's because scammers know how to appeal to people's emotions and why again and again when you really effective scam designed to prey on base human emotions. You've got love. Which is those romance scams which are really effective Natural Disaster Death Sickness. Things like that people aren't necessarily thinking clearly they're not thinking straight their emotionally vulnerable and they can be victimized when they're in that setting so yeah. I really encourage people you know. Hang up the phone quickly. Don't engage with a scammer. But not so much of a game plan like which relatives the contractor not to contact although it might be effective for some people to to think like that and come up with you know basic strategy for dealing with some of these issues.
