Kinder Institute of Life Planning’s Money and Meaning Blog presents the “I’m a Registered Life Planner®” series. Host Lora Woodward, Chief Operating Officer, chats with Eleanor Brownn, Owner of Brownn Consulting based in Los Angeles, CA. Eleanor is one of over 600 professionals globally that have earned the prestigious Registered Life Planner® (RLP®) designation.
In their conversation, Eleanor, a gerontologist, shares that a speech by George Kinder stuck with her for 10 years and how the pandemic pushed her to focus on her own life. She tells us what’s in her own life plan and how she uses the methodology to work with “women in the middle.” Eleanor reflects on her own torch being lit and how a health scare motivated her to write her first book. The interview is full of wisdom, compassion, and encouragement. Her advice to fellow life planners is to “practice, practice” and “to let go of doing it perfectly.” It’s a must watch for professionals that are interested in learning the process who may not have a financial planning background.
Eleanor Brownn is the owner of Brownn Consulting, a Registered Life Planner®, and author of The Other Serenity Prayer: Meditations on Self-Kindness.
