I love my job. I love listening to my clients and learning what hopes/dreams they have for their families. I love working closely with them to create a plan that will help them pursue their goals. But the part of my job I love the most is demystifying personal finance for my clients.
Sometimes when people come to me, I can sense how confused and intimidated they are. It’s not surprising that people often feel that way. They have big goals that require a lot of money. How can anyone possibly save enough money to do things like buy a home, start a business, send their children to college, or live a comfortable retirement?
Issues concerning money are often presented in a way that seems determined to make people think it’s in a foreign language. The best part of my job is clarifying money for these folks and helping them create a plan that if adhered to, their dreams could potentially come true. What once seemed impossible is now simple to address. It’s nothing more than a series of steps that when taken, create a larger picture.
However, I’m just one person and have a family of my own. I can’t possibly reach as many people as I would like. Or can I?
That question is how What the Wealth?! was born. While I cannot reach tens of thousands of people in person, I can reach them through a book. Therefore, I decided to write one!
I wrote What the Wealth?! to help people whom I’ll never have the opportunity to work with make intentional money decisions that will allow them to take control of their money and their futures. I wrote this book to break down the barriers around personal finance.
What the Wealth?! A Guide to Financial Clarity for Professionals and Families breaks down the complexities of money. This book makes personal finance easy to understand and provides actionable steps that, when put together, will give you a financial plan that covers every stage of life.
