The stock market is up double digits. It has been now for years.
We've seen a jump of more than 300% since 2009! It's insane. But, are you seeing similar numbers of growth in your account?
If you haven't seen the growth you think is possible in the second longest bull market in history -- maybe you should be more aggressive with your finances.

It's Important To Track The Right Growth - Here's Where It Matters Most
Go jump on your employer benefits website and see how the growth in your 401k for the year to date measurement. The S&P went up 14%. What did you do?
If it's not 14% -- that's okay, because if you are only tracking against the SMP, you're measuring the wrong thing.
To make the full 14% the S&P experienced, you have to be willing to accept 100% of the risk. What does that mean? From the high in 2007 to the low of 2008 there were over 50% in losses.
You can earn 14% returns... if you're okay with the risks.
If You're Under 40 You Can Afford To Be Aggressive - You'll Be Better In The Long Run.
If you have at least two decades until retirement a big loss would allow you to buy more and maximize your growth.
We love to encourage young people to be aggressive (With the right plan in place).
If you are over 40 you need to grow as much as possible while not hurting your long-term plan. The short term growth is not worth the long-term risk.

Don't accept growth apart from strategy. You have to think BIGGER.
