Everyone has a unique vision of a prosperous and secure future. Whatand#8217;s yours?
If someone asked you to describe prosperity and security, what would you see in your mindand#8217;s eye? Is it finally taking that trip to Paris? A beautiful beach house? Or maybe making that last mortgage payment and staying right where you are? In your vision are you captaining a sailboat? Hiking through a redwood forest? Or simply enjoying a precious moment of peace and contentment?
When it comes to financial planning, itand#8217;s easy to jump right into the minutiae of investments, skipping over the deeper questions of what you really want from your money, both now and in the future. But in Picture Your Prosperity, Ellen Rogin and Lisa Kueng do the opposite. First theyand#8217;ll help you figure out exactly what you need and want. Only then will they show you how to make the smart money decisions that can help turn your vision into reality.

Many of us avoid the process because it feels too stressful, boring, or difficult.

Youand#8217;ll learn how to handle your money with more joy and less stress, even during turbulent times.and#160;And youand#8217;ll explore ways your financial moves can have a huge positive impact on other people.
As Rogin and Kueng write, and#147;Your money is important, but money is meaningless if it canand#8217;t be connected to the rest of your life. Who cares what the totals on your balance sheet or in your bank account are if you canand#8217;t use them to build the kind of future you want? What good is having a brilliant investment strategy if you worry incessantly about losing it, constantly fight with your partner about money, or come home and kick your dog on days the market drops?
