If our health and our relationships make up our assets, then money and time are the resources. I help clients make the most of their resources to help leverage and/or fulfill the quality of their assets. I have always been fascinated by economics and the financial markets, but even more in how people interpret them. I'm intrigued by people's decision making processes around money, their emotional intelligence and the field commonly known as behavioral finance. In my experience, this is where quality Financial Planners are able to help people in life.
