Episode 17 – Your Financial House

For today’s episode, we talk about the importance of creating a financial plan for your retirement. Rather than using industry terms, let’s build a financial home from the ground up. Every home needs a blueprint, foundation, walls, and a roof, and so do financial plans. Tune in to learn about the strategy phase, how to plan your financial home to suit your needs, and what to do if you have to remodel. It’s time to start talking about finances because your future depends on it.
