Retirement Resources President, Dave Boike Finds Several Sources Of Inspiration To Share With Readers During These Challenging Times.
Retirement Resources President and Investment Advisor, Dave Boike shares some good economic news as we are moving into the holiday season, along with some inspiration from Mr. Walt Disney’s life.
Auburn Hills, MI — October 21, 2020— 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, “The Holidays, The Recession, The Record-Setting Stock Market And Mr. Walt Disney,” in which Mr. Boike gives his readers a few more things to be thankful for this holiday season.
Boike writes, “I recently came across a quote attributed to Walt Disney who allegedly said, “I heard there’s going to be a recession. I decided not to participate.” I love the sentiment this quote evokes,” he says, adding, “It speaks to the fact that Mr. Disney had the ability to look challenges in the face as if they didn’t exist!” He asks, “Couldn’t we all use a dose of that kind of thinking right now as we’re heading into the holiday season? I know I sure can.”
“I decided to do a little more digging to see if I could find more inspiration to share with my readers,” Boike writes. He continues, “Here’s another nugget I found. Disney actually established his business during the Great Depression of the 1930’s. He offered people hope, fun and uplifting messages at a time that felt like the world was ending.” Boike states, “This makes me wonder what exciting new businesses will be born out of this pandemic. While many businesses are closing down, you just know there are others that are in the conceptual stage and will flower successfully despite the challenges.”
According to Boike, “Right now, this kind of vision is so inspiring even as millions of people have lost their jobs. It also makes me hopeful because even though the market and retirement accounts took a big nosedive in the first quarter of the year, things have stabilized.” He goes on to say that, “It has also been reported that the number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits dropped below one million for the first time since the shutdown began in the spring. In addition there has been some improvement in consumer spending, a rebound in the housing market and better-than-feared corporate profits. All of this adds up to greater investor optimism.”
Boike goes on to point out, “Many people who have been able to return to work have resumed contributing to their retirement accounts.” He further adds, “While I am keenly aware that many people are dipping into their retirement funds to keep a roof over their heads and food on the table, it is still good news to hear that retirement accounts are bouncing back.”
