This is the first episode of Money Matters. I want to tell you about myself, this podcast and what you can expect from us.
First, a little bit about me.
I’m a Certified Financial Planner (CFP(R) pro) and investment adviser. I designed my firm — Blue Ocean Global Wealth — to take a more personal approach to financial planning & investment management. My goal is to always put you, as a person, first. I am passionate about education, it’s the foundation of everything I do from working with individuals and families on a financial plan to helping business owners design a retirement plan.
And education is really the foundation of this podcast. To be more specific, I want to use education to do three things:
Help listeners understand the world of financial services and the financial advice profession, so they know who to call for help, what to listen to, who to trust.
Help listeners start to process their own relationship with money. This informs my 1:1 client meetings and it’s important to have a broader conversation!
Help listeners make better choices when it comes to money matters. That’s ultimately what it’s all about, right?!
Marguerita (Rita) Cheng helps educate the public, policy makers, and media about the benefits of competent, ethical financial planning.
