I have always been a fan of your financial advice. I’ve been paying myself first with automatic savings for years. Your recent family adventure has been something I can especially relate to as my husband and I, New Yorkers, and world travelers, have dreams of living in other parts of the world when we retire in a handful of years. Now during this unreal time – I am framing it as a radical sabbatical- and have been looking for opportunities to grow and decide what parts of that future freedoms we will enjoy in retirement-we can make happen now. Live rich now has more to do with mindset than with the balance sheet. Thank you for sharing your experiences in Florence right now. Truly feels like messages from a smart, realistic, yet always upbeat friend.
