Happy Summer! I hope this newsletter finds you well and that you enjoyed Independence Day last week. We closed the office for two days for the team to better enjoy the mid-week holiday. My family spent the day catching up on projects around the house while reminding our younger kids that the 4th of July was not the official holiday of staring at online videos, then convinced our kids into a nice 9 holes of golf and a family dinner. Although not the most stressful or energetic of celebrations, it was still a tad difficult to get back into the swing of things come Friday morning! I suppose that is the downside of having a holiday in the middle of the week. You don’t want the fun to stop.
When approaching retirement, getting your finances organized is one of the first steps you should take.

Getting a clear financial picture can help ease the transition into retirement because, at the very least, you’ll know what accounts you will be drawing from, where they are being managed, how your investments can continue to generate income for you, and what tax liabilities they may impose. It requires discipline and clarity to keep your finances organized before and during retirement.

As the warm weather slowly inches ever closer to our front doors we are grateful for the prospect of outdoor grilling, blooming flowers and some good old Vitamin D. The first quarter of 2018 has flown by at Flourish and we are excited for some wonderful upcoming events that we are participating in.
SAVE THE DATE
This year we are sponsoring two events that we also participated in last year. On May 10th, Kathy Longo will be chairing the annual YWCA Minneapolis’s Circle of Women luncheon. The Circle of Women fundraiser luncheon is an inspirational opportunity to support life-changing programs in the community, empowering women and girls and eliminating racism in profound ways.

An important aspect of the Flourish investment philosophy is to help our clients find the right portfolio for them. We use a variety of tools to help clients identify their risk tolerance, then match that up with their long-term financial goals to build a customized investment solution.
The following article by Dave Goetsch, Executive Producer of “The Big Bang Theory”, provides helpful perspective about the importance of staying focused on long-term goals instead of reacting to short-term market movements. This is an important concept to connect with because big market changes can affect us emotionally and psychologically. Mr. Goetsch does a nice job of summarizing his connection with market performance without using investment jargon.
