The Life Maximizer with Shari Greco Reiches

On today’s show, Liz talks with Shari Greco Reiches – The Life Maximizer. Shari’s adoptive father gave her a great piece of advice early in her life: “You can have anything you want, but you can’t have everything you want.”
Shari has taken that advice and used it as the foundation for how she advises her clients as the founder of Rappaport Reiches Capital Management. Her firm’s motto: “How can we help you maximize your return on life?”, builds on that early advice by helping clients figure out their core values and then balancing their wants against those values and their financial portfolio.
While Shari is still actively involved in running her firm, she is creating her own third act within the firm, distilling all the valuable lessons she’s learned and giving them back through a blog, book, and podcast.
