Investment Philosophies

  • Life is a series of trade-offs – more of one thing usually means less of another
  • Our financial decisions move us either toward or away from our ideal selves
  • People are happiest when their financial decisions are in alignment with their personal values – not when they have more things
  • Working and spending decisions are more important than saving and investing ones”
