Joanna Burish joins the show today to share her expertise as a licensed holistic financial planner with Northwestern Mutual. Her family office focuses on three ways her clients can have more power and control over their finances.
In today’s Thought Talk podcast we discuss the importance of partnering with your financial planning advisor, the difference between good and bad debt, the three financial items you must handle as a result of the COVID pandemic, and how to work with a “financial quarterback” to keep you on track.

Tips for Financial Planning

  • Holistic VS Siloed planning. 
  • Finding the right holistic financial planner. Striking a balance between  comfortable and challenging. 
  • Short- and long-term plans — in times of COVID, make sure your fight-or-flight response is mitigated and you keep making decisions that align with your long term plan.
  • The three things you need to have a handle on right now — 1. Keyman insurance, 2. tax-free, tax-deferred, and whole life insurance and 3. portfolio allocation and diversification.
