15:05 “People are emotional [with their investments], and the reason I think they’re so emotional is because they don’t have that well thought-out financial plan or financial strategy”

19:52 “[Have] the right asset allocations; some of you might have a portfolio that is suited for a 40-year old when you are in your 60’s, and some of you might not be taking on enough risk”

24:10 “If you think about where your retirement assets are located, probably most of them are located in IRAs, 401(k)s and 403(b)s. Guess what? When you take the money out of those plans, you have to pay income taxes on it. Some people don’t realize this.
