Martin Luther King Jr. Day

I grew up during the civil rights movement and remember seeing Martin Luther King Jr. give his speeches on the television. He showed a nation what inspiration and passion for a common goal could do. This movement and equal rights in general remain important events in my life. I may be a financial planner who wants to make finances easier to understand, but I also know it is important to share important dates during the year.

Knowing about important events broadens your knowledge and outlook. Having a broadened outlook and knowledge are great Financial Strategies For Life.
