"We have to self-develop and we have to take control" -CEO Rosalind Brewer


It looks like the CEO of Walgreens Boots Alliance, Rosalind Brewer is stepping down after 3 years from one of the most, if not the most, recognized pharmacy chains in the country, according to an article by CNN.


Why?


In her words...to advance her career.


Many years ago, I would think this was a cop-out but I may be softening up on my position.


When we think of financial planning, you, the client, are always at the center of that plan. Your best interest should always be served, first.


In the midst of financial turmoil caused by declining sales and an increase in shoplifting. This seems like a great time to jump ship for Rosalind.


As an investor, knowing when to mitigate your risk is going to be one of your greatest superpowers.


I know we have our favorite company stocks. But sometimes, we have to let go if we are going to move forward.


One of the biggest risks, an investor can take is having a high concentration of company stock.


It is estimated that Walgreens shares are down roughly (-32%).


Meaning, if you had $1,000,000 in company stock, in your retirement account, right now, you would only have a little more than $666,666!


So to combat this, you need to diversify your investor holdings.


Take a close look at your investments and make sure you are rebalancing your holding to match your risk tolerance.


Rosalind is right.


You have to self-develop and take control.


As it says in 2 Timothy 1:7- For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.


Today, I want you to lean on that power and take action. If you are struggling with your finances, reach out and get some relief.
