Mind over Money Series

Behavioral financial planning involves the development of practical techniques to overcome human weaknesses in decision making. By identifying these obstacles, our firm can help clients avoid irrational, reactionary behaviors when hearing current news stories or what economists say about the market, ultimately bringing them closer to their goals. 

We invite you to watch the Mind Over Money videos at the right, featuring Kol Chu Birke, managing principal, corporate strategy, at Commonwealth Financial Network®, our Registered Investment Adviser–broker/dealer. Kol provides a personal approach to tackling our financial behaviors and offers guidance for staying on track.
