Life comes at you fast. One minute you’re living your retirement life. The next, you need major surgery. “I’m having major surgery tomorrow,” a client said to me yesterday. “Take care of things for me,” he said. “I will,” I said.

We’ve been working together for over 20 years. He’s been trusting Richard C. Young for many more. He’s financially fit because he invested in himself at an early age and was smart with his savings. He realized a long time ago that saving money and investing are two different things. He needed help with the second one.

I know his family because he tells me about them. They know me because he tells them about Your Survival Guy. He also puts me on speaker every time we talk. “Hang on,” he’ll say. “Did you hear what he said, hon?”

“Can you say that again, Survival Guy?”

And I’m ok being the voice of reason. Taking the slings and arrows. That’s my job. When you work with good people—good families—it’s a calling.

Action Line: Make it a good day. I’ve got your back.
