Does your spending align with your values?

 

"The reason I ask my clients this question is because it helps us understand their values. Often, the process of asking ‘Why?’... uncovers deep desires and fears that we are often too busy or too scared to think about. While the process can be uncomfortable, recognizing what really matters to you is the first step toward making financial decisions that are in sync with your values."

- Carl Richards, One Page Financial Plan
