The Fruitful perspective on  everyday finances.



Amidst life’s obligations, how can you figure out what you really want? Imagine you just received $5 million dollars, that’s how!

What do you really want?

Life is full of obligations.

It can be difficult to know what we really want when we’re so busy trying to meet the expectations our culture has placed on us.

So how do you take back your power and decide what your best financial life is?

First ask yourself some imaginary questions

A fictional scenario can help clarify your true goals and values. It gives you permission to dream big.

So — imagine you just inherited $5 million dollars. What would you do?

Get as specific as you can:

  • What would your daily routine be?
  • Where would you live?
  • What would you buy?
  • Would you live off the interest and never work again?
  • Would you keep working — and if so, what would you do?
  • What hobbies would you pursue?
  • What gifts would you give, and to what people?
  • What charities would you support?

It’s easier to figure out what’s really important to you when you imagine having fewer obligations.

Now translate your values into actions

Once you know what you’d do if you weren’t so concerned about money, ask yourself how you can make that knowledge part of your real life.

Figuring out how to find the time and the money to do the things you love — either right now or 5 years from now — is something you can talk to your Fruitful Financial Guide about.
