The Old and the New 7 Rules of Financial Security

Rule No. 1: Risk

Old Rule: If you can stomach the ups and downs that come with risk, you'll be rewarded.

New Rule: Risk isn't about your stomach. It's about making or missing an important goal.

Old Rule: Keep enough money in ultra safe accounts to cover life's emergencies, but no more.

New Rule: Relying more on cash can rescue you in an "asset emergency."

Rule No. 3: Human Capital
