If you have children, you may be familiar with the 529 savings plan.

Several years ago, a friend and an owner of a professional practice asked me to help him run his firm like a "real business." As it turned out (and to my surprise), I had the temperament and skills to think strategically, lead a team with fortitude, and relentlessly execute a plan with laser focus.
My success in that role led me to a project with another firm, and then another, and so on. Thus began my life as an accidental executive and business consultant.

If you ask me, getting your finances organized doesn't need to be on par with getting a root canal done. But still, there’s a lot involved for sure.
