- Stephen M. Hughes and Tiffany discussed the four components of financial wellness: Awareness, Education, Action, and Mindfulness.
- Awareness is being in the right frame of mind to make conscious decisions about money.
- Education is a greater understanding of financial concepts beyond the basics, such as budgeting and savings. It includes more complex topics like insurance, estate planning, investment strategies, etc.
- Action involves taking steps to improve one’s own financial situation through research or professional guidance; it is considered the most critical step in financial wellness by the speaker.
- Mindfulness is an understanding that our emotions are intertwined with money matters; it contributes to overall well-being and should be considered when making decisions about finances.
