The Road to Financial Independence
Why are some people more successful investors than others? Luck? Probably not. Do they know a “secret?” Definitely not - because there are no real secrets to investing. But there are rules you can follow to work toward your goals. Join us for our Rules of the Road presentation. You'll learn:
• The most common investing mistakes and how to avoid them
• Investing strategies to help reach your long-term goals
• What you can do now to prepare for retirement

 Please call Jennifer at 231-777-3102 or email farrah.starr@edwardjones.com by Friday, February 5 to reserve a seat.
