As market volatility and uncertainty have continued since our post two weeks ago, we wanted to follow up with some additional thoughts on the topic of being prepared for stock price declines. 

Since this conversation was recorded, major market indices have entered official “bear market” territory having fallen more than 20% from recent peaks in February.  Whether stock prices are down 10%, 20% or even more, the points we make remain consistent.  Preparing for an uncertain future is timeless and transcends whatever market conditions we face in any current moment – low stock prices or high. 

Please take a few minutes to listen.  Let us know if you would like to talk more or if there is anything we can do to help. 


Lastly, here is a link to view our previous post on this topic: You are Prepared for This

Best wishes,
