In our estimation, education and time are the primary determinants of financial independence.|
A degree or certification marks the first step to gainful employment. The accompanying paycheck not only pays the day to day bills, but also funds dreams. While many Americans struggle to get by, a numbered few carve off the requisite savings for future financial objectives.
While the youth are preoccupied with their wages or lack thereof, mature America laments time. "It goes too fast. If I could go back..." From a financial planning perspective, time is the most important resource just behind money. When time and money are combined, good things happen. The phenomena known as compounding interest was referred to as the 8th wonder of the world by a pretty smart guy by the name of Einstein.
In this instant gratification society, it may seem that temptation is getting the better of discipline. Studies contradict that notion. This generation does plan for the future when given the opportunity. The problem? Student loans, lack of financial literacy and a lack of peers in the financial industry have all been cited as barriers to planning for younger adults.
As part of our commitment to our community and our industry, the Rosselot Financial Group would like to announce the first annual Ron Rosselot, Plan for Life Scholarship.
Ron Rosselot grew up in a blue collar, lower middle-class home. He joined the Army to fund his education. He dreamt of owning a business. In 1986 he made that dream a reality. That business, the Rosselot Financial Group, has helped countless others realize their dreams of home ownership, paying for college, starting businesses and ultimately retirement. We hope this award will promote education, enable dreams and have a lasting impact on our community.
