Retirement Resources President, Dave Boike Invites Readers To Envision A Future That’s Bright, Healthy And Prosperous For All, For The Coming New Year And Beyond.
Auburn Hills, MI — December 30, 2020— Dave Boike, President of Retirement Resources and co-author of The Ultimate Success Guide with Brian Tracy, published a new article on the company website entitled, “The Future Is Ours To See And Visions Are Forming.” Mr. Boike shares some interesting statistics and his vision for the future.
Boike writes, “The song we all learned as children, “The future’s not ours to see, que sera, sera,” has been spinning around in my mind like, well, like a broken record.” He continues, “While the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic sent the whole world reeling, everyone is trying to regain equilibrium while simultaneously attempting to imagine what the future might look like. Unlike the lyrics to that childhood song, the future actually is ours to see and to bring to fruition. It may not turn out to be exactly the way we see it, but it might be many times better.”
“I’ve been scouring around the Internet and industry publications,” says Boike, “to discover what some of the predictions and visions for the future are. Honestly,” he admits, “my own ideas are fairly limited to the financial industry and how my personal business is affected. It seems we here at Retirement Resources may be working remotely from our home offices for the near future and meeting with our clients virtually instead of in person.” He goes on to add, “We are discovering and utilizing technology as a tool to enhance the client experience and to make our own internal workflows as seamless and secure as possible.”
Boike states, “Despite the devastation to some individuals, families, businesses and entire industries, on the bright side, it seems as though savings are at a historical high. It seems odd since millions have lost their jobs, small businesses have closed in record numbers and the entertainment industry, in which I include organized sports events, has been decimated.” He goes on to say, “Yet statistics show that total income has increased, according to an article in The Atlantic. They also report that “the stock market is setting records, home-buying is on fire, and that national savings rate is at a 45-year high.”
Boike shares, “What I imagine as we move forward is a world in which we all feel safe again to hug our family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances, to shake hands and to sit side by side in theaters and arenas. To give a complete stranger a high-five as we collectively cheer and rejoice enthusiastically at our children’s special events. I imagine greater opportunities emerging out of the seeming chaos of this pandemic. I imagine those who are barely making it now thriving in the not-too-distant future.” He adds, “I hope you’ll join me in imagining the best as we continue to move forward. Let’s keep our eyes and our thoughts on the future and let’s not hang on to the past. The future is only ours to see.”
