Whether you’ve started a new job, are an experienced professional, or are a business owner, you must have heard the classic wealth management advice from your peers/mentors/family: “Invest to grow your wealth.” While I agree with this school of thought, I’m also aware that the words ‘investment planning are horrifying to many.

And as a parent, it’s natural to provide the best for your child.
