Workshop Part 2: Building Better Money Habits! REGISTER HERE! Thursday, May 6th @ 1:00 pm PST Ginger Ames Financial Planning Support Specialist – Terra Blue Wealth Management I practice financial life planning, which is an approach that builds on the traditional financial planning method, tying it in with one’s intrinsic motivations. It is more than just plug and play with financial numbers; it is an introspective process to define a rich life. On a personal level, I value authenticity, balance, play, and integrity. Nothing revives me more than a few nights in the Sierras.
