How did you celebrate Earth Day, April 22, 2007?

Here is an excerpt from Midnight Oil’s, Beds Are Burning;

The time has come
To say fair’s fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share
The time has come
A fact’s a fact
It belongs to them
Let’s give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning
How can we dance when our earth is turning
How do we sleep while our beds are burning

The time has come to say fairs fair
to pay the rent, now to pay our share

Fulfillment Planner™

Sequaying from Friday’s Blog Article that I wrote relating to a Fulfillment Planner™, it seems that I am not the only one with thoughts that Financial Advisors may integrate Life Coaching or Life Planning both for themselves and for their clients into their Financial Advisor Practice.

Here is a link to an article entitled Taking a “Life First” approach: The emerging trend in wealth management by Barry LaValley
