Financial Tip

Invest on purpose. Successful people don't invest with an index in mind, but with their core values and goals in mind. There is a purposeful destination to their work, saving, protecting and investing. This is first grounded and then articulated in their financial plan. The portfolio is then conscripted to serve that plan. Being a partner with clients in that life affirming work is deeply meaningful for all involved if we approach it in this manner."
