Steve Forbes on "The Power of a Game Plan”

Northwestern Mutual hosted a speaker series with Steve Forbes, chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media. In conjunction with Northwestern Mutual, Forbes has spoken about the economy to over 22,000 people in more than 30 cities since 2010. Approximately 375 people attended the event in Seattle. Some of the key insights Steve presented at the events were:
 
  • Getting to retirement is no longer the end goal - it is a new starting point. Forbes contends that today’s economy coupled with increased life expectancy means there is an increased risk for individuals to deplete their assets too soon. A well-rounded plan is essential to help maintain financial security for life.
  • It is unlikely that individuals can solely invest their way to prosperity. Rather, he believes in practicing proven financial principles, such as setting a budget, saving in addition to investing, and dollar-cost averaging for the long-term.
  • There are plans that individuals and business owners can put into place now to help ensure long-term security. Forbes encourages Americans to not let debates keep them from addressing their short- and long-term financial needs.
