You’ve worked hard in your career and taken your share of risk to get to where you are. Let’s face it, you feel like you’re in a pretty good spot financially. However, you have things scattered in multiple accounts at various places and consider this diversification. You wonder if you will “have enough” or if your money is working as efficiently as possible. Oh, and everyone is looking for ways to be more efficient with their tax situation. At the end of the day, it’s complicated, and sometimes you may not even realize you have a blind spot in your planning.

Home is where the greatest moments are shared and where the most valuable and meaningful memories are made. But sometimes, life happens. From technology and social media to work-life imbalance to competing schedules, families can struggle to be present and connect on a more personal level at home.

This fall, Northwestern Mutual wants families to find that connection at home again. Parents can submit a video or photo of their kid's ultimate home experience inspiration — the bigger, the more out-of-the-box, and the more imaginative the ideas, the better — and we may just ring your doorbell to make your dream a reality!
