bill-schultheis“From a financial planning perspective, the goal isn’t to try to avoid bear markets; it is to choose an allocation between stocks and bonds in such a way that you never have to sell your stocks in a bear market to pay your monthly bills.” – Bill Schultheis

He encourages us to participate in life’s events, not only in our careers, but also in our financial practices.
