Retirement Resources President, Dave Boike Helps Shed Light On The Complex Topic of Investing Using Familiar Gardening Concepts

Retirement Resources President and Investment Advisor, Dave Boike, Cultivates Smart Investors By Teaching Them How To Invest in The Same Manner As They Garden..

Auburn Hills, MI — April 5, 2018— Dave Boike, President of Retirement Resources and co-author of The Ultimate Success Guide with Brian Tracy, published a new article on the company website entitled, “Learning About Investing Through Gardening,” in which Mr. Boike points out the similarities between the two endeavors.

Boike writes, “While investing concepts can be complex and somewhat foreign for many, there is much that can be learned about various aspects of investing from something most people are familiar with: gardening.” He continues posing a few questions, “ If you were to look outside at your garden right now,” he asks, “would you say that it is it well maintained? Is it flourishing with a variety of plants? Is anything missing?”

According to Boike, “Successful investing and successful gardening share many similarities. For both, the process begins with a vision.” He elaborates, “Once the vision is implemented, both your garden and investments require regular care and attention. More importantly, each one requires a long-term approach in order to reap maximum rewards.”
A gardener begins with a unique vision of the desired end result for the garden,” Boike says, adding, “and no two gardeners are alike. Your garden will reflect your unique tastes.” He states, “Once the initial blueprint has been established, you’ll select the specific components. Certain plants are going to be excluded from your garden for various reasons. Some may not be appropriate for the climate, or they may be too expensive for your current budget. In addition, each plant has individual needs for sunlight. Some plants need longer hours of sunlight, while others need less. Plants also have different needs for irrigation”

According to Boike, “Just as you want to create a healthy garden with a variety of easy-to-maintain, low-cost plants that produce great bounty, you also want to build a low-cost, tax-efficient, and well-diversified portfolio that will meet your financial goals over time.”
