Thinking about your financial future can be stressful. The holidays are definitely stressful when it comes to finances. You may feel like you are making a big mistake when you spend money during the holidays, or vacations, or just having a fun family day when you should be saving and planning for the future. Why not have both? Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to live a full, fun life right and also be secure in your future, as well? With Vanguard, you can feel like a part of a community. You can also feel like investing for your future doesn’t have to be a sacrifice right now! You CAN have it both ways. You can feel the security of planning ahead AND the satisfaction of living a fuller life today.
So that is exactly what I did over the weekend. My husband, my daughter, and I had some fun this weekend. We visited a local mall, we checked out all of the beautiful decorations, played in the arcade, had a lovely dinner and saw a fun, family movie together. We also bought some Christmas gifts for our family members, rode the little Christmas train, and played in the play area. It was such a lovely weekend.
Usually, when I am out with my family, it can be hard to enjoy the time because I am always worried that we are spending too much money. It was very nice to have a weekend without the stress and worries on my mind. That is what people who involve themselves in a community such as Vanguard can feel like. They feel like they can just live and enjoy life without too much of the worry. It is a community of people that think long-term, tune out the noise and keep investment costs low. Money is such a huge part of life and where people choose to invest matters. When the family weekend is over and the kids are in bed, you should feel good about what investments you are choosing.
In a recent study, it was revealed that Vanguard clients are different compared to investors at other firms. It was found that while Vanguard clients stay informed of their progress, they do not obsess over fluctuations in the market! Why? Because they believe in their long-term plan! Vanguard clients also spend 6 more hours per week, on average, with their kids compared with clients of other investment firms. Vanguard clients are also 24% more likely to feel involved with their kids compared with clients of other investment firms.
Are you sacrificing your life’s enjoyment because of the fear of your future financial security? Share with me in the comments!!
The Where Investors Belong survey was conducted by market research firm Kelton Global in 2016. It polled 1,000 Vanguard clients and compared them with 1,000 clients of other investment firms. All differences between Vanguard clients and clients of other investment firms are statistically significant at the 95% confidence level. The parental stat refers to clients with children of any age who provided the number of hours per week they typically spend with their children or who, compared to other people they may know, believe to be more involved in their child’s life. The experiences of these Vanguard clients may not be representative of the experience of other Vanguard clients and aren’t a guarantee of future investment performance or success.
