Highlights of today's show:
- Good to be back doing a normal show
- Busy month for the blog and podcast in June
- 2012 is halfway over, but you still have six months to reach your goals
- This podcast is not about saving the money only to hoard it
- Money is a way to do what is most important to you
After having guests on the last five shows, today I fly solo. June was a busy month for the podcast and blog. We had "Author Month" on the podcast, introduced a new coaching package for recent college graduates, and released our first eBook The Major Components of a Healthy Financial Plan. Thanks to all of you who visited the site in June!
Today I discuss for all of the new listeners why I do the podcast and why I am so passionate about handling your money well. It's not to accumulate the most money or see who can buy the nicest things. Rather, it is a part of a well-balanced life that includes faith, family, and career, among other attributes. Unfortunately, I have seen how not having control of your money can have a negative impact on the areas of your life that are most important to you.
Overall, money is important but not the most important thing in my life. For myself, my faith, family, and career all come above money. But handling our money well allows us to enjoy those areas of life without having the stress of money added to it.
