How Evolving Financially Can Lead To New Meaning In Life - Daniele Beasley

“I think that focusing on the behavioral aspects, is the most important thing and matching the math not with the investment side of things, but with the math of ‘how is this going to fund my lifestyle for the next 25, 50 years, and how am I going to leave a legacy for my family?’"



Our host Ed Coambs of Healthy Love and Money sits down with Certified Financial Planner Daniele Beasley. Daniele's journey to financial intimacy is nothing short of inspiring as she shares her experiences from shifting investment outlooks to navigating the delicate tension between contrasting investment philosophies. Ed and Daniele explore the evolution of the financial industry and the increasingly necessary role of financial planning and therapy in navigating our money matters.


They venture into the challenging terrain of financial literacy and planning, focusing on the need to create a balance between our present and future selves.

Daniele imparts her wisdom on recognizing stages in cycles of change and guiding clients through them, using the trans-theoretical model of change as a constructive tool.

They stress the importance of taking time to assimilate new knowledge and how it can empower us all to make informed financial decisions.
