Curious what it’s like to be married to a financial planner? In this episode, Dr. Taylor Inman (my better half) reveals the good and bad that apparently comes with marrying someone who loves to geek out over numbers.
Taylor and I also discuss a bit of our backstory, how we ended up creating our own financial life plan and how we have been living out our ideal life for the past few years.
Having an open dialogue with each other as well as time to self-reflect allows us to hone in on our “why”. What is important to us, separately as individuals, as collectively as a married couple. What is our ideal life and what would provide meaning to our lives? This is the foundation of a life plan and we start off the life planning process by asking 3 questions. These questions, pioneered by George Kinder’s Life Planning Institute, are so important that an entire show was dedicated to them.
I strongly encourage you to write out your answers to these questions. Is your current life aligned with what you really want? If not, what changes can you make to get you closer to living out your ideal life?
