Take the Fear out of Your Finances Amidst the challenging times we're facing in our world right now, it's easy to get caught up in the fear of the unknown. Instead of focusing on how out of control things may feel, let's lean into the ways you can reduce fear and gain control of your personal finances.1) Talk About It. Share your money concerns with another person (not one trying to sell you a product or viewpoint). Especially in these times of 24/7 media and social media feeds, what we need most is another healthy human being to talk with. We at BridgeQuest promise to listen and seek to understand before making any judgment or recommendation if you bring concerns to us.2) Be strategically diversified with your investments and don't try to time the market.

A silver lining in a highly volatile year such as this is to consider tax harvesting (essentially selling depreciated after-tax investments at a loss and reinvesting in different investments to trigger a loss that can be used to lower 2022 taxes). We are already evaluating this if you have after-tax investments with us, but if you have any questions on how this could work in your situation, reach out to us and/or your CPA.
