Living in the Now with Bonnie Bailey, CFPⓇ

Doing our best to stay in the moment and live in the now is a significant part of feeling content financially and otherwise. On today’s episode, Bonnie Bailey and host Scott Ford will break down the moment necessity of living in the now within the Way2WealthⓇ process.

In the healthy, wealthy, wise, and happy framework, wisdom comes from being present, having experiences, and being a lifelong learner. Both Bonnie and Scott try to embody this philosophy every day.

Bonnie approaches this philosophy by focusing on what she brings to every experience – her best self. She uses these moments to learn and grow as a person. In finances, it means having the option to take advantage of opportunities that come her way.

Our industry is hyper-focused on money and growing money for the future. The industry is almost always future-focused, but all we have is this exact moment. 

Most advisors and financial professionals will tell you to look 10, 20, or even 30 years into the future. While preparing for the future is important, taking the time to enjoy the current moment is just as necessary.

Join us today as we explore what living in the now means to both Scott and Bonnie. What does it mean for you?
