Welcome to the Seriously Fam! Where modern professionals get serious about creating the life of their dreams and the wealth to go with it. Michael and Alisa are siblings who rarely fought as children, lived together for a short stint, and once even worked at the same office. They’re close. Now with Michael living in Fresno and Alisa living in LA, they use this podcast to chat about what they’re up to in work and life. 

Seriously though, Michael is a Wealth Adviser and Alisa is a Vision Producer. You can expect Michael to reveal tips to save, manage, and invest your money. Alisa will share best practices on getting clarity on your vision, creating a strategy, and making it happen!

And being yourself! When you focus on your natural gifts instead of what you think you should be doing, you’ll run into a wall every time. Alisa and Michael talk about strengths and weaknesses and financial assets and liabilities to help you find balance in your life and in your pocketbook.

Serious Talking Points:

  • PSA: Vermouth is only good for three months
  • Focus on working from your strengths, not your weaknesses
  • Keep a balance sheet! Know your Net Worth
  • Total Assets (own) - Total Liabilities (owe) = Net Worth
  • Review your balance sheet regularly to know where you stand (pulse check)
  • Ask yourself the tough questions. What areas of your balance sheet need your attention? Do some research, retrace your steps
  • Your balance sheet, spending plan, and financial goals should all be in alignment
  • Self-reflection will help you understand your strengths/assets and deficits/liabilities
  • Be your awesome self by living in your strengths/assets
