If you’re looking for general guidance on how to invest, we’ve got you covered on this episode. First we begin with a few different financial laws that you should follow to always stay on the right track with your plan. Then we’ll move to financial statements people have made that came back to haunt them.

Are you following the basic laws of finance? That’s what you need to ask yourself as you build a financial plan for retirement.

You won’t find these laws in any courtrooms, but they exist in investing and provide you with the guidance you need to make decisions. Ryan and Bob Payne will run through a few of these financial laws and explain what you can do with your own portfolio to follow them on this episode of No Payne, No Gain. They’ll also share some personal client examples that tie into these laws to give you an example of ways they’ve helped people stay on track.

From there we’ll move to financial regrets. The guys will look back on statements made that have come back to haunt investors. Pay attention because you don’t want to make these same mistakes.

We’ll finish out the show by bringing on Emily De Valente for our spotlight segment. She’s a financial advisor on our team and recently worked with a couple to bring both spouses up to speed on the finances and the planning. This is something that all couples should be doing around retirement so that you both know how to access your accounts and understand where your money is going.
