Bob Payne has spent nearly a half-century in finance and that’s more than enough time to form his own philosophy on investing. On this episode, we share some of our favorite ‘Bob-isms’ that get said around the office before we discuss some of the common financial concerns we see from clients.

Our fearless co-host, Bob Payne, is celebrating 45 years in the financial industry, and that’s given him plenty of time to accumulate wisdom. He’s shared that knowledge with clients and co-workers through the years in what we like to call ‘Bob-isms.’

We wanted to share some of our favorite sayings because they also provided great financial guidance as well. So we’ll do that on this episode of No Payne, No Gain and Bob will talk about each of them as we go along.

This show will also discuss some common financial concerns that we see and hear from clients. Your retirement plan is a long process and there are changes that happen through the years that give us some anxiety. Let’s face our fears and figure out what we can do to ease those worries.

We’ll close things out with two questions from listeners about leaving a high-paying job and how to tell if your brother-in-law is legitimately a financial advisor.

We’ve laid out the show in the rundown below to make it easier for you to skip to the topics you care about most or to go back and listen to something again.

Today’s rundown:

0:32 – Previewing today’s episode

1:15 – Celebrating 45 years in the retirement business for Bob with some of his best sayings.

1:46 – ‘Invest in the market you have, not the market you want.

19:08 – Mailbag time

19:34 – Mailbag question:  I’m 62 and making more money than I ever have but I hate all the red tape and politics of a Fortune 500 company. Do you think I’d regret walking away from this income?

21:51 – Mailbag question: How can I tell if a financial advisor is qualified or not? My brother-in-law just informed us he’s a financial advisor after last month being a life coach. It makes me skeptical of the profession.

“For the average investor, risks are something that are only recognized in hindsight and that means you’ve already lost your money.”
