Labor Day: Make investments work as hard as you do

   It’s almost Labor Day – a good time to recognize the value of work and its importance in achieving your life’s goals.
   But if you’re going to retire comfortably and reach your other financial objectives, you also need to invest – and your investments need to work as hard as you do.
   One way to help ensure your investments are working efficiently is to match them to specific goals.
   And to keep your investments on the job, so to speak, you need to stick with investing, even when the market goes through a steep decline.
   If you’re on the investment sidelines, you might miss out on the next market rally.
   Also, you’ll need a reasonable percentage of investments that can provide growth potential, given your individual risk tolerance.
   Finally, to keep your investments working hard, check up on them periodically.
   If it seems like you’re getting off track, you may need to adjust your strategy or investment mix.
   Keeping your investments working diligently can help boost your chances of achieving your important financial goals.
