Over 4,000 hikers have completed the Pacific Crest Trail between Mexico and Canada. For those on this great journey, the motivation of completing the 2,650 mile trail is what drives them to walk an average of 20 miles every day, manage difficult challenges including low water supply or injury, and withstand over 489,000 feet of elevation gain over the course of the trail.
Between difficult climbs, scary descents, strong winds, snow-covered trails, and challenging white-water river crossings, these PCT hikers have planned for months in advance – spending the time, energy and effort necessary to prepare themselves for these unexpected challenges. They understand the road will be long and the journey may be difficult, but that’s okay –because they’re planning for it.
Much like that of the PCT, the path of your financial future involves climbs, descents, unforeseen changes, and unexpected challenges. It is a journey that is alive and changing everyday. Creating a plan to conquer these challenges is essential, and understanding what is driving you to your destination will help shape the path you are on. No matter where you start, navigating the unknown is the most critical part of any journey, and this is where we can help.
