Measuring What Matters Most

My recent trip to see my newest grandson, his twin brothers, and his parents reminded me once again that my true wealth continues compounding at an amazing rate. When people say children are expensive they often forget to consider how much off-setting compensation comes from the value of experiencing children grow into wonderful human beings (and friends) and the treasure of having grandchildren. Considering all that, rather than being expensive, my children have proven to be the best investments My Beloved and I ever made (and I’m a wealth advisor who knows a thing or two about valuing investments.)

With Love,

  2. Yes my daughters and grandchildren give me so much they make me feel so rich even though I have very little money

      I’ve learned that money means little to me once I have enough to take care of the basic needs of my family. I know that’s perhaps an odd thing for a wealth advisor to say but it’s my truth.
