Howard Column: Six Steps to Better Financial Decisions
Money is easier to spend than ever. Unintended consequences of financial decisions have more impact than ever. Financial conversations are more complex than ever. Creating a Statement of Financial Purpose will provide you with a framework for conversations and commitments. What do you value and what is meaningful to you and how do you align them with your credit card purchase or what comes out of your wallet?
The benefits of re-connecting with or clarifying your values and using money as a reflection of what is important in life include releasing FOMO and what the outside world tells us we “should” look like or be., You will create better physical, mental and relational health as you leave financial stress behind. It provides clarity and connection, continuity and confidence as we use our money intentionally instead of haphazardly.
