When it comes to sustaining and growing wealth, it can be hard to trust the random financial advice bandied about around the watercooler. Ideally, we’d want tips to come from credible sources with a legacy of giving sound guidance. Enter founder and CEO of Highland Wealth Management, a boutique wealth advisory firm, John Christianson. As an Eastsider and a wealth strategist for the past 25 years, Christianson has made it his business to provide financial life coaching to some of the area’s wealthiest residents. In his book, The Wealth Creator’s Playbook: A Guide to Maximizing Your Return on Life and Money, Christianson outlines how to accomplish what he calls “living fully” and encourages readers to answer that question with the most elusive of answers: “What is my life for?”
