Think of all the money you'll save on hair cuts, and you'll finally get to grow out those Elvis-like sideburns you've always secretly wanted.
You'll be completely oblivious to the fact that you don't have the latest iPhone.
No more waiting in Starbucks lineups, (or more specifically behind the first-timer trying to order a “Double Ristretto, Venti, Non-fat Organic, Chocolate Brownie Frappuccino, Extra Hot, with Foam and Whipped Cream Upside Down Double Blended).
You will never again have to build ANYTHING from Ikea. I mean seriously what the heck is a Farfenloogan anyway? And why does my 18-year-old daughter have to have one?
and the final advantage to leaving your head buried in the sand when it comes to your family's financial plan is...
It will be much easier to avoid the fact that you're one of the more than 73% of Canadians who do not have a written financial plan yet. Which of course is ludicrous considering almost everyone prints out an itinerary to go on a 2-week vacation, yet when it comes to our biggest itinerary of all time, for the longest vacation of your life [RETIREMENT] most don't have one.
Now, I'm obviously having a little fun with this, but after 28 years in the industry, I've heard all the excuses. But the internal optimist in me would tell you when you finally do pull your head out of the sand, the bad news is, I can’t help much with the first 4 on the list, however, #5, well that just happens to be one of my favourite things to do, so give me a call.
PS. Keep the sideburns, you look fantastic, don't let anyone tell you differently.
