Wells Fargo

v36_wf_retirementIt’s tempting to tap your retirement savings or reduce the amount you’re investing when faced with conflicting financial priorities. Yet an increasing number of individuals are doing so without understanding the long-term implications.

Even in a strong economy there are large expenses that will tempt you to tap into your retirement accounts, from paying for a child’s education or wedding, to paying off credit card or medical bills. A weak economy makes it even tougher to stay the course. And while taking money from your 401(k), IRA, or another qualified retirement account may seem like a good solution at the time, it can create hardships down the road, forcing difficult lifestyle choices.

The following tips can help you find answers for these questions as you plan for the months ahead, and for many back-to-school days to come.

v31_wells_fargoMy first trip out of the U.S. spawned my passion for travel. At 17, I had the opportunity to study abroad in Finland as part of the Youth for Understanding program. While I’d traveled to Disney World and lots of other road trips growing up, my trip to Finland was not only my first time traveling abroad but also my very first time on an airplane.

In Finland, I was initially out of my comfort zone because there were not many people who looked or talked like me. However, being fully immersed in a culture that was different from anything I’d been exposed to turned out to be a transformative experience. I was among others who shared a common passion: We all wanted to learn more about the world outside of what we knew.

Consider this: Texas farmers and ranchers lead in cattle, cotton, hay, sheep, goats and wool/mohair in the U.S. The fact is agricultural services and products are valuable to our nation and for global consumption and the actual assets of farmers and ranchers – land, equipment, stock and the like – are valuable in their own right.
