How I live the Four Capitals

I make an effort to spend my money strategically and efficiently, while saving appropriately to accomplish my future goals.

The most important part of my Physical Capital approach is finding joy in doing what we all know we should do – eat a well-balanced diet, engage in exercise, get 7-8 hours of sleep, and so on. In doing so, I strive to find fun recipes that I can cook with my family and activities that I look forward to doing, such as boxing or running. This helps me stay active and healthy, both physically and mentally.

The health sciences field is constantly evolving. Advancements in medicine and science allow us to continuously discover new approaches to staying healthy and enhancing our quality of life. Strengthening my Intellectual Capital involves reading books, articles, and research, and listening to podcasts and lectures.

Remaining mindful and calm in a world of hustle and growing expectations requires practice. I strengthen my Psychological Capital by going on walks without a phone, meditating, setting goals and creating opportunities to achieve them, and most importantly, taking time weekly to practice gratitude and remember what is truly important in life.

Why I enjoy working at SFG

I’d be remiss if I didn’t say working with my parents is what I like most. However, aside from working with family, I enjoy the client-centered and Four Capitals approach. I am not a financial advisor, yet I get to bring my area of expertise to the table and support clients in a unique way for this type of firm.
