Many people believe that earning a high level of income translates into immedaite success. Professionals in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) industries have higher starting salaries than most other fields and being in this industry group often means working in a grinding career, which offers little-to-no-time for proactive, personal financial planning. The truth is, financial success isn’t about how much money you make or how much you have. It’s about what you do with it and how you plan that really matters in the end.
In a study we performed at our office, interviewing influencers in the STEM industries, we found that most people felt that they needed basic planning. A common theme we found was, “We don’t know what we don’t know.” Individuals in the STEM industry also tend to be educated and analytical. They make good, calculated decisions, but find themselves so busy with the constant evolution of their own industry, they don’t have time to keep up with the ever-changing world of retirement planning and tax benefits.
What we do at our office is help keep you educated with all the financial planning benefits that affect you, so that you can focus on staying relevant and stay up-to-speed with the volatility of your industry and workplace.
