October 17, 2018

EP 174 Linden Cornett

When it comes to balancing work and life, Linden Cornett seems to have found a really interesting way to do that. Last time we spoke with her she had promised her family to not work as much by taking on only 5 new clients per year. In this episode we catch up with her to see how this plan has gone and how she is balancing family life, her practice and a part-time job.

Linden gives us some awesome and specific information on who she chooses to work with, what specific things she helps people with and how much the business has grown over 3 years. She discusses the research she has done on the new tax laws that came into effect last year and gives advice on leveraging funds to help her clients donate more efficiently to their favorite causes.
