“Horses, magic, unicorns, phoenix rising! What, you may ask, does this have to do with financial planning? Read on my friend as Betty-Anne Howard has managed to tap into the heart and soul of our industry with the help of her co-creators. This book is a rare gift: motivating, inspiring, while educating you a bout the true nature and what is at the core, for many of us, working within financial services.”

Chris Reynolds

“This book is warm, heartfelt, and most of all inspiring. It captures the true essence and importance of financial planning in a fun, thought-provoking way. Grab a cup of tea, sit down, and enjoy! Betty-Anne’s candour is refreshing and will leave you wanting more.”

“What I love and appreciate about Betty-Anne’s book is each chapter is joyfully serious. A scene is painted and a provocative question asked. I was left both thoughtful and inspired. And I should also add, I was left seriously joyful!”

“Similar to how Susan Cain’s Quiet revolutionized the way the world views introversion, this deeply insightful book promises to revolutionize the way we all view another frequently misunderstood subject: the field of financial planning. Howard offers an examination of a topic that takes up much of our time—money—and somehow manages to do so in such a fresh, charming, and inviting manner that even the most finance-phobic out there will find themselves won over. Overflowing with inspiring quotes and illuminating anecdotes, this is a book for anyone seeking clarity regarding their personal finances—that is to say, everyone.”

Betty-Anne Howard, Maggie Ashton, and Marlene Armstrong spent an entire weekend, between meals and riding horses, and gathering with friends, discussing the meaning behind these quotes, going deeper both personally and professionally. Before becoming a Certified Financial Planner®, Betty-Anne spent 17 years in the social and emotional health services field as a counsellor and teacher. This experience, in addition to her Master’s Degree in Social Work and Honours Degree in Psychology, informed her more holistic approach to Financial Planning. For her, Financial Planning isn’t just about the money; it’s about “the meaning behind the money.” Betty-Anne is passionate about making information accessible to all and is driven to connect and educate.
