Rocco Carriero - Understanding the Three Cords to Wealth and Life




Do you have perfect balance in your life when it comes to running your business, taking care of your family, and taking care of yourself? Perfect balance is hard to achieve. If we are aware of what we are doing and where we are going, it’s possible to combine these three areas of our lives to make each stronger. Rocco Carriero is the author of Three Cords Approach: To Life And Wealth Management For Business Owners. A book about striking the perfect balance of these aspects of life and finances.


Rocco A. Carriero is a comprehensive Wealth Advisor specializing in working with Business Owners, CEOs, and Entrepreneurs. He is a Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor, Accredited Portfolio Manager Advisor, and holds an MBA in Banking & Finance with over 20 years of experience. He’s been featured in major financial publications like Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Fortune. He’s appeared on Fox and NBC.


We talk about how a cord will snap if it’s not given attention. All three aspects of our lives need to be maintained, just not all at the same time. Rocco shares the importance of being aware of the important things you need to work on and scheduling them. Big picture thinking is one of the most important things an entrepreneur can do. We talk about the difference between vision and mission and how our decisions align with our values. Rocco shares insights on how we can use the three cord concept to keep our finances, businesses, and lives moving in the right direction.
