Ep 86: Making Intentional Choices to Find Balance
Updated: Jan 19
More About This Episode:
Sometimes finding balance requires you to shift your goals to prioritize what’s most important, and today’s guest did just that.
Chad Hufford of Veritas Wealth Management in Alaska has a great story about choosing finance because of the balance it offered compared to his original career goals. When he was growing up, many of the people in Alaska at the time felt like staying in the state for your lifetime was settling.
So Chad’s teenage vision was to become a surgeon. He received a degree in biochemistry, but during his last year in college, he read a wealth book and met his future wife and it changed the course of his life. He knew that becoming a surgeon wouldn’t allow him the balance between career and family that he wanted in life.
Now he’s built a successful business with balance, but there are still challenges he constantly has to battle. His experience at home and at work provides some great insight into what’s most important and where we can all improve as professionals.
