With the stock market collapsing and Coronavirus fear spreading like wild fire, I have received a ton of email and website comments asking for an answer to one very specific question:

 “I am still in the stock funds.  I have lost a lot of money!  Can you tell me what I should do?” 

 I answered this question in the Smart Reads post entitled “It Depends“.  Since that post, the market has fallen another 20%, generating more urgency for a personalized answer.  As I explain in the post, the answer to that question depends on your personal circumstances, risk tolerance, proximity to retirement, other investments, time horizon, etc…  Fortunately, my schedule has freed up and I will be available for personalized TSP coaching going forward.  

 If you are interested in a 1 on 1 Coaching Call, here are the ground rules:

  • You understand that I am NOT a Certified Financial Planner
  • This is a “Fee Only” call.  I will NOT sell any financial products or receive a commission from any financial institution we may discuss
  • The call will focus on coaching you thru your current TSP allocations with respect to your personal financial circumstances
  • You are responsible for any and all actions taken as a result of the Coaching Call
  • All calls will be limited to 1 hour

 Coaching Call Fee Structure:

  • $50 per call for Site Members
  • $100 per call for non-Site Members
  • Payment made via PayPal: Jerry@GrowMyThriftSavingsPlan.com
If you are interested in scheduling a Coaching Call, please read the “It Depends” post in Smart Reads and be prepared to discuss each of the bullet points.  Have your computer up and I will walk you thru how to utilize Stockcharts.com to manage your TSP going forward.  By the end of the call, you will have a much better grasp of how to maximize your TSP account while minimizing losses and navigating thru this unprecedented Bear Market.


I have limited availability throughout the week.  Calls will be scheduled on a first come / first served basis.  If you’re interested, shoot me an email ASAP.
