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 for Kinder Institute, chats with Sidney Divine CFP®, ChFC®, RLP®, RICP®, CDFA®, Founder at Divine Wealth Strategies in Atlanta, GA. Sidney is one of over 600 professionals globally who have earned the prestigious Registered Life Planner® (RLP®) designation.

Sidney’s journey into financial services began with a college class that sparked his interest in the stock market. After an internship at AFLAC, he landed a job in the industry, driven by a desire to help clients navigate their financial futures. However, it wasn’t until he encountered a mentor who emphasized the importance of life planning that Sidney’s approach to financial planning truly transformed.

Through the mentorship of Stephen Brody and subsequent training at Kinder Institute of Life Planning, Sidney learned that financial planning is about more than just numbers—it’s about understanding clients’ values, aspirations, and fears. This holistic approach resonated with Sidney, leading him to integrate life planning seamlessly into his practice.

Sidney’s integration of life planning into his financial planning process has had a profound impact on his clients. By helping them uncover their deepest desires and align their finances with their values, Sidney has witnessed clients achieve their dreams, from traveling to Greece to starting new businesses.

But perhaps the most significant transformation has been in Sidney himself. Through the life planning process, he realized the importance of work-life balance and pursued passions outside of his career, such as golfing and starting his own firm. This personal transformation has not only made Sidney a better planner but has also inspired his clients to live more fulfilling lives.

Sidney’s advice to aspiring life planners is simple: start with yourself. By living your life plan and embodying the principles of life planning, you can better serve your clients and lead them on a path to a more meaningful life.

Sidney Divine’s journey exemplifies the transformative power of life planning. By integrating life planning into his practice, Sidney has not only helped his clients achieve their financial goals but has also inspired them to live more fulfilling lives. His story is a testament to the profound impact that life planning can have, both professionally and personally.

Thank you, Sidney, for sharing your story with us. Your passion for life planning is truly inspiring, and we wish you continued success in your journey.
