Investing seminar on the horizon

The Rules of the Road seminar will cover the keys to successful investing by addressing important factors to consider, such as taxes, quality investments, price, diversification, long-term investing, losses and careful decision making.

“In about 60 minutes, I will provide those who attend with 10 steps to follow when investing before and during retirement,” Ludgate said.

“Whether your dream is to live comfortably in retirement or to send your kids to college, this seminar can show you that those dreams can become reality if you follow the rules of the road.”

The seminar is free, but space is limited. Call Lisa at 824-8033 to reserve your space.
