As a man, one of your primary responsibilities is to provide.
Now, if you’ve ever tried to create a financial plan or met with someone who did it for you, you understand what a confusing and frustrating process it can be. My guest today is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and author of The Behavior Gap: Simple Ways to Stop Doing Dumb Things with Money and The One-Page Financial Plan: A Simple Way to Be Smart About Your Money.
He’ll share with us how easy it can (and should be) to finally get on track with your money. We’ll also explore why we make the decisions that we do when it goes against everything that we know.
