What do I want financially? What do I need financially? What are my short- and long-term financial goals? What big events (School, weddings, retirement, elder care) do I need to plan for? What "Big Thing!" would I do if I had the money? Finally, you need to ask some "What if" questions. What if Dad needs to go to a nursing home? What if my spouse becomes ill or dies? What if we sell the house, move to Italy and paint frescos for the rest of our lives?DiscoveryInvestments, annuities, life insurance policies, 401k’s , IRA’s, bank accounts, loans, mortgages, trusts, wills, and lists of potential needs and opportunities.
