    Ep.108 HIGHLIGHT I How to find, format, and live out your values

    WANT THE FULL EPISODE? Check out Ep.108 I Sanger D. Smith I Deciding with the Decision Lab Process: Make the Most of Your Wealth Using These 5 Key Decisions, or download it directly using this link.

    This week, Sanger shares the 5 Key Decisions everyone must make to achieve significance in life and business.

    As a private wealth advisor and the founder of a wealth management firm, Sanger has spent his career helping people transform their wealth to significance. And over the years, he has developed a proprietary approach we call the Decision Lab process.

    We designed this process to help clients build the right financial plan, one that is customized and truly transforms their wealth to significance. The fundamental principle of this process is to take clients through the “5 Key Decisions,” each of which will create opportunities for other decisions that all help clients make the most of their wealth.

    Foundationally, the five most important decisions one can make in life and business are:

    1. Decide who you are.
    2. Decide where you are.
    3. Decide where you are going.
    4. Decide how to get there.
    5. Decide who matters.

G’Uncle Todd ,

Failure is Data!

After listening to each podcast, I pick up useful bits of helpful information and add to my mental toolbox. I already embrace and welcome change. I KNOW change is immanent. Change will propel you one perspective shift to the next perspective evolution. I often listen while at work. Sharpens my acuity. I wrote “Failure is just data.” Wish I could attach a pic! It’s in a notepad at work. A reminder. Also, Taco Bell knows it’s client base and is laser focused. I still ain’t eating it! Ha!

The guests are impeccable! Part, accessible with their knowledge and information. Part, relatable. Thank you!

Worth the listen

The hosts take on serious topics, while keeping the discussion light hearted and easy to follow. I love hearing the guests provide insightful info about their experiences and listening to the hosts dig into how it relates to decision making.

Funny and informative!

I absolutely cannot recommend this podcast enough! This podcast dives into situations where the host had to make difficult or crucial decisions and the lessons from these experiences are applicable to one’s personal or professional life!

The hosts are simply fantastic! They have an innate ability to keep the conversation moving and funny all while digging deep into the guest’s decision making experiences. They are able to ask thought provoking questions that educate the listeners on the different aspects of decision making.

Overall, if you are looking for a podcast that is funny and can help improve your decision making, look not further than Decidedly. The podcast is a must listen!
