Making A Difference In The World With Our Founder

Know That This Too Shall Pass
Ana always references the phrase that “This Too Shall Pass.” What she means is that when we enter into financial situations whether they are good (a new opportunity, job, wedding, etc) or bad (debt, credit cards, car breaks down, etc) our physiology takes a jolt. We begin to build stress in our body, affecting everything from our health, relationships, to the way we see ourselves. During these situations, Ana believes that the most important part is to just take a breath and figure out what the emotional component to the situation is. She highly encourages all of her clients to understand what and why they are feeling the way that you do.
Ana often references the two aspects of Money – First, the science of it, we can call it IQ. Second, is the emotional component of it, what creates the most stress (positive, euphoric, negative), we call this the EQ of money. In sum, she reveals to all of her clients that once they become aware of these two aspects of money, they can figure out how to navigate both sides of money.
Money Is Energy
Ana believes that money is energy. As a result, she encourages all of her clients to practice gratitude. She says that “The gratitude we give to money, adds to our flow with it.” What does she mean by this? Well, in order for us to receive money or even a gift, someone has to do work. They get paid, and in turn, they give us money for something we did for them or as a gift. Either way, it is being given to us and we need to learn to accept it in gratitude. At the same time, when we give or pay for something, something physical or for a service, we should thank the money that is going out. Ana says that we should all “Wish that money is received with good intention.” As you continue to work with Amida Wealth, the flow of money becomes more apparent– this is what Ana refers to as the energy of Money.
Have A Vision
Ana tells all of her clients to have a vision. She recommends for everyone to create a plan, action on it, and then follow it up! She wishes she could give exact pointers but the truth is that each piece of advice varies based on personal goals, financial situations, timelines and the priority individuals give it. Ultimately, her biggest piece of advice for this is to work with someone who understands. Someone that can be by your side to guide you through it all. Someone that is also strategic in their approach. They can lead you, educate you, and if need be– hug you! Perhaps, someone to give you a little pat saying – what were you thinking! Remember that Amida Wealth is always by your side.
Ana’s Concrete Basic Money Guidance:
- Have a cash reserve.
- Protect your ability to earn an income, those you love (or owe money to), and yourself in your later years.
- Know where your money is going and allocate towards your today and future goals.
- Work smart from a tax perspective.
- Have a written estate plan that takes you under consideration but that also alleviates those you love in the event something happens. Don’t let them have to do the dirty work for you when you are no longer here.
But this is just the basics and something you can find in any financial book. The best Ana can do for you is merge the intellectual and the emotional part of money and help you create a strategy that is specially designed for you.
