New perspectives on risk and trust #Risk #FinancialPlanning

By June 27, 2012 October 4th, 2016 No Comments

Well, this Financial Planner has new perspectives on risk and the idea of trust after this morning.

First, I was at the chiropractor’s office this morning and he adjusted my neck.  So while I was lying down, my head completely in his hands, he made a quick motion to adjust my neck, which means he took my head and turned it very quickly.  It’s quite a feeling, and probably not a whole lot different than the motion needed to break my neck.

I told him that my clients take a leap of faith when I make investments for them or plan their estates, but that I had just literally put my head in his hands.  Apparently, I must trust him a lot to take that risk!  That risk has already paid off, as I feel much better.

The second thing that gave me a new perspective was that I got a call a little later from my oldest daughter, who just turned 16.  Today she passed the test for her driver’s permit.  The risks and trust issues involved in that are only beginning..
