Financial Advice is Helpful. Financial Planning is Magic!

At Yeske Buie, we believe that financial advice is helpful, but financial planning is magic. As Financial Planning Evangelists, we believe this distinction matters and the reality is that a lot of financial advice is masqueraded as financial planning. For example, financial planning is contextual, and it’s comprehensive, and it’s integrated, and it’s strategic. Financial advice, on the other hand, is more transactional, ask and answer. We’ll explore this distinction and more during our dynamic discussion. Feel free to come prepared with questions or examples of ways that you feel financial planning is magic.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
