How To Have Thanksgiving More Than Once A Year

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on what we cherish most – our family and the precious moments we share.

I’ve been invited out to Thanksgiving dinner so instead of cooking, I’ve decided to write an email about the holiday to you, my Wealth Pack family.

I want to share how focusing on wealth building and financial independence can not only secure your future, but also help to create more opportunities for quality time with family.

​It can also open up more opportunities to contribute meaningfully to our communities.


  • More time for family and community engagement​
  • Long-term investments over short-term gratifications
  • ​Embracing financial education as a family activity

Financial Independence: More Time for Family and Community Engagement
Achieving financial independence means gaining control over your time – one of life’s most precious resources.

By adhering to a thoughtful budget and planning for the future, you can free up time previously spent worrying about finances.

This extra time can be invested in your family, creating lasting memories, and actively participating in community events and volunteer opportunities.

Action Step
Identify one activity each month that combines family time with community service. This could be participating in a neighborhood clean-up, or even a charity run.

One of the most fulfilling things I’ve ever done was go back to my old neighborhood and spend time during the week teaching children how to read.

​By scheduling these activities, you not only foster family bonding but also set an example of community responsibility, all while managing your time effectively as you work towards financial independence.

Prioritizing Long-Term Investments Over Short-Term Gratification
Investing in your future often means making choices between immediate pleasure and long-term benefits.

It's easy to succumb to the lure of instant gratification – whether it's a luxury purchase or a trendy gadget.

However, each time you choose to invest in your future rather than spending on non-essential items, you are taking a step towards a more secure financial future.

This doesn’t mean living without enjoyment, but rather finding a balance where your spending aligns with your long-term goals.

By practicing mindful spending and focusing on building an investment portfolio, you are laying the foundation for a future where financial worries are minimized, and quality time with family is maximized.

Action Step
Every time you're tempted to make an impulsive purchase, pause and ask yourself, "Could this money be better invested towards my future?"

Redirect these funds into a diversified investment portfolio or a retirement account.

​This practice not only builds your wealth over time but also cultivates a mindset of delayed gratification which is crucial for long-term financial success.

Embracing Financial Education as a Family Activity
Financial literacy is an important life skill, and there's no better way to learn than as a family.

Engaging in financial education together not only helps everyone understand the value of money and the importance of saving and investing, but it also strengthens your bond as a family.

You could start by setting family financial goals, such as saving for a vacation and involve everyone in the process. Discuss different ways to save and grow money, and encourage your children to contribute ideas.

This inclusive approach not only educates your children about money management but also shows them the value of working towards common goals.

Action Step
Every month, involve your family in a fun financial learning activity. This could be playing a finance-related board game, attending a workshop, or even discussing investment basics over dinner.

This not only enhances your family's financial literacy but also brings everyone together for a shared learning experience.

It's a great way to bond and instill financial values in your children from a young age.

​One of our favorite board games is The CashFlow Board Game by Robert Kiyosaki. You can find it on Amazon.

We wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and a wonderful holiday season.
