Let’s think about what kind of vision and mission we want for our money - Don’t miss this extremely important conversation! #esg #investing #values #valuesalignment #financialwellness #financialempowerment

Statistics tell us that money is the #1 stressor and also a leading cause of divorce. However, in my interview with Adam Kol, the Couples Financial Coach, he sees a couple’s finances very differently. Money does not need to stress us out or break us up, it can actually bring us together and help foster closeness and intimacy. What if we used money, not just as a means of exchange or to support our lifestyle, but as a way to get to know our spouse better and as a way to bond and build a stronger relationship? You’re not going to want to miss this conversation!
The pandemic shined a spotlight on a myriad of issues relating to affinity and member benefit programs, the most significant of which is, “what you are offering to your members MUST be unique.” The concept of exclusivity is of paramount importance for associations to see maximum value for program offerings as the digital economy continues to disrupt and shape the way members pursue benefits and offerings that may no longer flow through a membership channel. Great listen!!
