Born almost 2,000 years ago as a slave in present day Turkey, Epictetus obtained his freedom and became one of the most influential philosophers of all time. Here is one of my favorite teachings of him: “If your choices are beautiful, so too will you be”.
You are what your choices make you. Throughout life you are constantly presented with countless choices every day, big and little. Those choices mold you over time.
You can say the same thing with your financial decisions. Your financial choices, big and little, will make or break your goals over time. Financial success and achieving your goals are not about correctly making one or two big decisions. It is about making sound decisions day in and day out, year by year.
Our #1 goal with every client is to help them make better financial decisions. Yes, it is important to have the right investment strategy. It is also important to save money in taxes and other areas. However, consistently making sound financial decisions is the most important factor to achieving your goals.
That is easier said than done. Sometimes it takes time. The best way to make better financial decisions is to increase your financial education and understanding. That is why we incorporate financial education with every client we work with. We help our clients to understand the choices they are making and allow them to see how each option affects their finances, now and in the future.
