Welcome back to Widow, Wisdom & Wealth! In this episode, we tackle the common complaints that arise during the financial planning process. Whether you feel like your advisor is taking too much risk, your account isn’t growing the way you’d like, or you don’t understand your financial plan, we'll discuss which concerns are well-founded, which are based on misconceptions, and offer insight on how retirees can best navigate their financial future.


Here’s some of what we discuss in this episode:

  • If you feel like your advisor is taking too much risk, it’s important to assess your risk tolerance and align your investment portfolio accordingly
