"When your values are clear
your financial decisions
I hope your year is off to a strong start. I’m actually writing to you today from Alta Badia, Italy on a ski break with my son, Jack.
The reason I’m in my hotel writing this quick email for you is that the Coronavirus is spreading worldwide – and faster than expected. It’s now even hitting over here in Italy where I am living.
I have just returned from Venice. My incredible mom, Bobbi, came to visit me and I showed her around Italy for ten days.
It was truly the ultimate blessing to have my mom here and to celebrate and share my love of Italy with her. People ask me what makes Italy so special? There are so many things I can say – it’s the beauty of everywhere you go, the incredible people, the food (OMG the food), the history, the art – and then, more and more, it is seeing the way Italians live.
The only problem is I promised myself I’d prioritize paying off my $43,000 in student loans.
Our Dream Almost Died This Summer
I’m writing this from Florence, Italy where we have now moved ( a dream come true). It’s been 44 days since we arrived.
There’s so much for me to share. But first I want to tell you about “how the dream almost died” and what we did about it.
And one book, in particular, that changed our entire outlook on life and dealing with all the anxiety and challenges of moving to Italy.
When starting out, there's only one answer - YOURSELF.
I'm asked this question quite often and I truly love answering it. As a first-time investor, there are countless routes you can choose; but truthfully, the most important investment you can make is to invest in YOU.
It starts by deciding to do a little thing I call “PAYING YOURSELF FIRST." This is the most important decision you will ever make when it comes to your money.
