My Bias is Showing
I'll have to begin this blog by pointing out that if you are looking for a completely unbiased opinion of NavStar, this ain't it. I realize that objectivity is everything these days, and we are constantly told that we should "keep an open mind." After the last election season, I've come to the conclusion (which blows that whole open-mind thing) that some of our minds are so open that the wind blows in one ear and out the other.
NavStar Financial Services is my baby. I have built it from scratch and not every day has been glorious and fulfilling. There has been a lot of blood, sweat, and tears along the way, and I'm grateful for every client that I have today. So don't expect me to be unbiased about it. And so, keeping that in mind...here goes.
When I began to formulate NavStar in my mind, one of my goals was to provide exceptional value and customer service to my clients. If there were no value in what we delivered, why should I expect anyone to do business with us? I also believed that the state of customer service is so bad in our country today, that anyone who could deliver in this area would have to beat customers away. Through the years I have focused my attention on doing just that, delivering great value, along with customer service that really cares, and the results have been gratifying. And so, I began to wonder why anyone would choose not to take a look at us. It wasn't easy-remember I'm biased, but I think I've found four good reasons not to do business with NavStar:
1. The omniscient reason: I'm already good at math and understand everything about the tax-code, and also everything about all the financial products available to me. (My biased answer: see Value )
2. The Ostrich reason: My portfolio is in good enough shape, thank you, and I don't really care how much risk I take with it. A 55% loss every 6-7 years is perfectly OK with me. (My biased answer: see lower risk and volatility)
3. The Procrastinary reason: I don't have the time to meet with a financial professional. I will try to make the time one day to start thinking about making the time. One day. Soon. (My biased answer: see Virtual Services)
4. The I Don't Trust Anyone Else reason: I keep my financial plan in my head, and prefer to bury all of my liquid assets in the back yard. No one needs to know what I'm thinking! (My biased answer....there is absolutely nothing I can do for you. Sorry.)
