There are many people out there who are perfectly capable of handling their own financial planning. By and large, though, the average person shouldn’t be doing their financial planning themselves. Here are three reasons you should consider hiring a professional:

  • You are too close to your own situation. Sometimes it’s hard for us to see the bigger picture for our own lives. Having an unbiased opinion from a professional financial planner can help lead you to make smarter choices for your financial future.
  • It’s hard to make the tough decisions. For the most part, humans are pretty bad about self-discipline. If you are the kind of person who has difficulty saying not to dessert, you might need help with your financial planning.  A professional financial planner can help you make the tough decisions and keep you accountable to your plan.
  • They know the reality of your situation. You might think you know how much you need to retire, but most people vastly underestimate their post-retirement expenses which leaves them coming up short later in life. A professional financial planner can help you make plans that will actually suit your needs after retirement.
