Key Quotes:

  • “Sometimes change is thrust upon us. But we are empowered to a certain degree to dictate how we respond to that change. And it’s that intentionality in the purpose in which we move forward. So I love this idea of…I want to do things on purpose.” – Erik Garcia, CFP®
  • “I think that for me in 2021, I’m just thinking about the ways that I can continue to contribute to my overall health knowing that maybe one day when I’m not expecting it, I might take a withdrawal. And so I want to make sure that I’m accumulating the health capital to sustain me through whatever difficult time might be on the horizon.” – Dr. Matt Morris, LPC, LMFT
  • “Oftentimes solutions are simple, they’re not easy. But accountability, to help with others, the support of others is going to get us to where we need to go. And that’s why Matt and I are so passionate about this idea of building us, in the idea of investing in relationships.” – Erik Garcia, CFP®
