I got plenty of feedback in January about my "Ten Ground Rules" for 401(k) success. The focus there was to help people who are working and saving for "someday" to be better off when someday arrives. But of course we have clients at every point on the spectrum and some are a lot nearer to "someday" than others. In an uncertain economy you might be retired before you expect it, and it pays to be prepared. Next week I will have a series of 5 posts, each with an important step to take in reviewing your personal financial landscape to be ready for a long, happy, and secure retirement.

And a little postscript:

I don't know anything about baseball other than attending a Red Wings game once a year. Reading yesterday that Roger Clemens was indicted for perjury didn't ring much of a bell for me. So I read a couple of articles and learned the story: Clemens was indicted for lying to Congress. Ok, if you lie under oath, that's wrong, we have laws about that, let him have his day in court. But what really bugs me is when Congress lies to its constituents.
