Happy Friday everyone –

A momentous week with the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.  As I told my wife last night, she may not have been my queen, but I have an imminent amount of respect and admiration for her dedicated service to her country.   

I thought the Tweet below from a friend well stated my sentiments. “When a sovereign is virtuous & rules as a servant of the people, a source of comfort & hope, there is no greater system of government & no greater witness to the true King who lives & reigns forever. For this reason, I love Queen Elizabeth II. Well done. Rest in peace & glory” (Pastor @Derekradney)

When Anything is Possible – Wealth and the Art of Strategic Living

  • Does how you handle your wealth actually align with what you care most about in the world?
  • Do you feel like you are pro-active and intentional with your financial affairs or entirely reactive to a busy world?

Growing financial wealth is a natural occurrence on the path to success. While this should make life easier, that is not always the case. With greater wealth, comes great opportunity and an overwhelming number of choices to make.

When Anything is Possible is the guidebook about how to engage strategically with wealth. It will help you change your wealth from something overwhelming and all-consuming towards a resource to be deployed to help you positively impact the things that you value most.
