To your health & wealth
Investing in your health is critical for your current and future health. This can be accomplished through regular exercise, eating a more balanced diet, getting 7-8 hours sleep per night, cutting back on the booze, quitting smoking, and learning to relax (to name a few).
Investing, as in investing in your financial future, is also critical for current and future health. Poorly managed debts, accounts, etc. can lead to physical and emotional stress.
This form of stress may not be recognized at first and may be attributed to other facets of life – family, job, health, etc. Yet, eventually the etiology of your stress will hopefully come to light – you receive a hefty credit bard bill, are unable to meet your car payment deadline, or simply cannot purchase the yummy cheese you love – you get the picture. If you get to this point (or if you have already reached it), it is important to take a serious and honest look at your overall financial profile.
Once you are honest about your current financial state, you can start making amends and planning for the future. It’s hard and often anxiety-inducing, but push through the pain. The reward is worth it (much like exercise)!
If you are interested in learning more about health & wealth, I may have the answer. Starting this March, I will be participating in a health & wealth investment group for women (perhaps we will begin a co-ed evening if we get enough interest!). Myself, along with a local and trusted financial planner will share tips and tricks for improving both your financial and physical/mental health. I am extremely excited about this initiative and hope to learn quite a bit on how to successfully manage my finances and plan for the future.
If you’re interested in attending, please be in touch. You do not need to commit to monthly meetings and can attend when it works for you. More importantly, the meetings promise to very informal with only about 20 minutes of speech time. The majority of the evening will be spent in discussion and answering questions.
The day following the meeting, I will post a short synopsis of what was discussed, however, it will be brief as I want you to attend the evening!
