FIRE!

Recently I was reminded of a family experience that occurred when my girls were roughly 14, 12 & 10. Picture a Saturday, early evening, the day winding down in the Nix house.

As I was walking down a long hall in our home, I hear my youngest daughter scream “F I R E!” Without thinking, I begin to run through the house yelling, “FIRE, FIRE!”

 I quickly locate my two oldest daughters and immediately go into “DAD Mode”, hurriedly grabbing both into my arms and racing outside to a place of safety. As I turn to go back inside to retrieve my youngest, I suddenly realize that both daughters were yelling at me…

“DAD! She was screaming S P I D E R not FIRE!”

As I look back on that experience and relate that to how we help our clients, I realize how important it is NOT to panic during a crisis. We have experienced a lot of volatility and uncertainty in the financial markets this year and anticipate the possibility of more. During a crisis it helps to first stop, remain calm then identify the facts and circumstances before taking an action.

Until next time…
Stay Safe and Be Well.
Best-
Jim Nix and the Horizons Financial Family
