Marsha shared serveral tips that I thought were powerful:
- Hire a financial planner to help guide you through your life transitions
- Carry a personal leadership notebook to jot down ideas that come to your mind as your day unfolds
- Put yourself on your calendar to dream about and plan your future
- Establish goals (immediate, short term, intermediate, long term and legacy)
As you listen to Marsha’s message, I hope you will find it beneficially to you personally, professionally, and financially.
