Well, we have made it to May of 2021 and this month is a bit of a soapbox topic for me. I recently wrote an article for the Contra Costa Lawyer on wellness, specifically financial wellness for lawyers. However, the topic applies to everyone. The biggest issue I have with the terms financial wellness and financial literacy is that there often has to be some problem-solving before the education that goes along with financial wellness and financial literacy. Educating someone on something they “should” have done is not helpful and actually makes the situation more overwhelming.
Besides the article in Contra Costa Lawyer, our featured podcast this month is about famous people who had financial stress. We also have an article on financial wellness in the workplace.
