Revealed… How Your Food Choices Effect Your Investing

Did you know your food choices effect your investing? Take the time to think about investing and the importance of knowing what you're getting into.

Whether it's food or stocks, doing the homework is crucial. This week we discuss...

  • The differences in food ingredients in the US, which use artificial dyes and corn syrup, compared to other countries that use natural ingredients.
  • How the brain's pattern recognition and shortcuts can affect investing and emphasizes the importance of doing thorough research.
  • How few people actually do the hard work and most rely on others.
  • The need to understand what you are investing in just like you need to understanding what you are eating.
  • The importance of understanding market trends, particularly in gold and silver.
  • Using caution when investing in gold miners due to their volatility and boom-bust cycles.

Today's Guest:  Kirk Chisholm

Kirk Chisholm is a Wealth Manager and Principal at Innovative Advisory Group, an independent Registered Investment Advisor located in Lexington, MA. He has been providing wealth management services to individuals, executives, entrepreneurs, and their families since 1999. He is an outside the box thinker, risk manager, inflation expert, blogger, podcaster, and all-around interesting guy. Kirk is dedicated to developing lasting relationships with all of his clients and their families. One of the benefits of working with Kirk is his patience, empathy, and his ability to provide clear and easy-to-understand explanations to complex financial topics.

Kirk developed a unique philosophy for the wealth management industry called Risk Management First. The medical field has a similar way of thinking of “first do no harm”. This philosophy focuses on risk management for clients in all aspects of their lives in ways the industry does not address. Risk management does not stop with investments. It also requires working closely with other professionals to address areas of their financial lives not currently being met.

In 2008, Kirk co-founded Innovative Advisory Group to address the needs not being addressed by the wealth management industry. It started with specializing in alternative assets held in retirement accounts (i.e. self directed IRAs/401ks). Then the company expanded into the specialization of college funding (i.e. planning, strategy, and paying the least possible for a high quality education), Risk Management First, exit planning for business owners, advanced planning (estate, tax, etc), and providing practice management and leadership training to other financial advisors, accountants and attorneys.
