This recent post is worth the 60-second read to help you think about what money means to you. Seth says, “before there’s money, there’s a story,” which is precisely the reason that the first thing we want to know when meeting a future client is “what’s your story?”
Our personal stories often have a huge impact on how we feel about money. How we feel about money can have an enormous impact on our outlook on the future.
We want to understand your story so that we can build a long term investment plan that gives you confidence in your future—A plan that can stop you from worrying about the money and help create a better story for the future.
It’s not just at the beginning that we want to know your story; we know they evolve and take new paths. We strive to get regular updates. If you have lots to share, we’d love to hear it (314-448-4023)!
We’re looking forward to hearing your latest update!
I often find inspiration in charities that demonstrate an entrepreneurial spirit and make a real difference early on in their lifespan; imagine my pride when I witnessed that first-hand in a charity started by my own nephew, Newell Hill.
I was fortunate to participate in a local event last month hosted by his charity: Keys 4/4 Kids. They are founded on the principle that music inspires kids to believe in themselves, so they set out to promote arts education and mentorship through various efforts that connect kids with music. Newell founded the charity in 2000, working out of his parents’ basement. They’ve since grown to four retail locations where they sell donated pianos to fund their work with kids. In the picture above, you see me with Newell at St. Louis’ renowned Ranken Jordan Pediatric Hospital where children painted a Keys 4/4 Kids piano as part of The Ellen Project.
