Did you know that we are biologically wired to give? Oxytocin (the happy hormone) suppresses the stress hormone cortisol. The more you give, the more oxytocin is released. Not only is the hormone released in you, it is released in the recipient and anyone witnessing the generosity exchange. Wendy Steele is the Founder of Impact 100, which brings transformational grants to local communities that focus on culture, education, environment, family, and health. This organization started in Cincinnati, Ohio, and now has an international reach giving significant grants of $100,000 or more. In this episode Shea Petaja will be asking Wendy to share her journey into generosity and why it has mattered so much to her. She will also share practical advice for business owners who want to go from successful to significant in their giving.

Your quality of life and your quality of finances is controlling what you can control. Psychology is what controls all of your financial decisions, said Tony Robbins in a recent interview with Fortune. Besides our medical information, what is more revealing than our finances? Not much. When Dennis sits across from a client, he is well aware of the vulnerability it takes to meet with an Advisor. It's not only vulnerable, it's brave. Our money is tied to our careers, the places we live, and the relationships that have succeeded and failed. As neutral as we try to make that dollar, it's a hotbed for a plethora of other discussions. The first step is to find a good advisor. We have questions for you to ask during your search. The second step is to determine where you're actually at. Are you accumulating? Preserving? Or distributing? For each phase of financial planning there are appropriate strategies. Join Dennis Prout and Shea Petaja as they acknowledge the emotional structure of money and the strategies we use to disarm the conversation.

Have you heard the story of the twin brothers who ended up in two extremely different places in life? One was wildly successful and the other couldn’t stay out of jail. When the successful brother was asked, How did you become so successful? he replied, With a father like mine, what would you expect? When the troubled brother was asked the same question he replied, With a father like mine, what would you expect? Their father was an abusive alcoholic whose behavior had a lasting impact on the decisions his sons made. What was the difference between the two? What type of person are you? What does this have to do with financial planning? Everything. The ability to persevere in the face of adversity is what makes or breaks us. We live in the tension of having the big-picture dream in one hand while managing the constraints of day-to-day living in the other. Our upbringing influences our beliefs about money and what we deserve in this life. Join Dennis Prout and Shea Petaja as they dig deep into the 7 Qualities that lead to perseverance as written by Forbes contributor Megan Bruneau and how this can help you with financial success and setbacks.

Is Social Security a BIG DEAL in retirement? YOU BET! Bob Simpson has been with the local Social Security office for 31 years. During his career, the resounding theme has been PLAN! PLAN! PLAN!

According to U.S. Census data, the majority of 18-34 year olds are living with their parents (31.5% to be exact).  Pew Research discovered that of those aged 25-34 living with parents, a "large majority say they're satisfied with their living arrangement (78%) and upbeat about their finances (77%)". Longevity, shifting job markets and delay in marriage have contributed to these statistics, and they aren't all bad, they're just different.  Somewhat unsettling is the dependence of adult children on their aging parents for financial support and housing.  Dennis Prout and Shea Petaja discuss an advisor's fiduciary responsibility in caring for clients and their long-term desires.  As clients age into retirement, they may face difficult challenges and be forced to face the relationships they have with their children.
