It’s Easter weekend, the weather is great, and spring has begun. It’s time to do some spring cleaning, look over our old investments, habits, and way of doing things, toss out the bad, and continue on with the good. I personally took care of some paper work and taxes (!) that I had been procrastinating on; now I look forward to enjoying the long weekend with less to worry about ahead.
Although the Easter basket above is pretty, remember, in investments and in life, and as my girlfriend likes to say… don’t put all of your eggs in one basket!
