Money can be one of those touchy subjects to discuss, much like politics or religion, but it doesn’t need to be. Money is obviously a part of our lives and it’s something that we need to feel comfortable discussing. Not just here on the show, but in our relationships. Most importantly, with our spouses, and if you’re going through divorce, then your soon-to-be ex-spouse.
The more you lean into learning about money, the more confident and comfortable you will be. Gaining knowledge and wisdom about your finances will help put your mind at ease about your future. Since most of us here are in the second half of our lives, it’s imperative that we prepare our finances, so we can enjoy the second half to the fullest.
I thoroughly enjoyed my conversation with our guest today and I love the mission of her company, which is, “Our mission is to improve the lives of our clients through financial and personal empowerment. We guarantee to do everything in our power to make sure you’re financially secure and on track, and we promise to be with you every step of the way.”
