Financial wellness and personal wellness have more than a few parallels. For both, advisors must build strong personal relationships with clients. Not only do both crafts require building a trusting, empathetic relationship between two people; both crafts also share similar concerns. Both fields of advising ask similar questions. How does a client want to live, and what do they want to change about their life? What are their goals and priorities for themselves?
Following a hike in the woods, VettaFi’s financial futurist Dave Nadig sat down with Dr. Phil Pearlman to talk Health, Wealth, and Simplicity. Pearlman, founder of the Pearl Institute, combines long term experience in the world of finance with a psychology background. In his work, and through his newsletter, Pearlman addresses topics including building a healthy lifestyle and mindset as well as developing resilience.
