2:31 “One of the things that we’ve seen arise during the divorce process is really having clients not know how much money they should offer for settlements and how much money clients should take for settlements.”
5:26 “So when we’re looking at the analysis, let’s take a recent divorcee and say ,what are her goals? She wants to make sure she has enough money to put a down payment on a new house. She wants to make sure her children are able to go to college paid for.”

21:11 “However, successful you may be in the future and for people who’ve only known you as successful, and that would be your children if you have been able to mass that before they were born, it can be hard for them to understand why you look at money and you treat it so differently than they do.”
