Navigating the Life Transitions Road Map

The Life Transitions Road Map guides you to identify your automatic, emotional reactions and prepare you to take action. Once you go through this course and use the map a few times, these steps might become part of your internal processing of any life-changing event.

You are encouraged to print out the Life Transitions Road Map and put it on your refrigerator, tack it to your office bulletin board or walk through it with a loved one who is facing a challenge of their own.

If you have taken other Smart About Money courses, you will notice that the map closely aligns to the typical SAM process:

  • Size up your situation
  • Analyze your circumstances
  • Make a plan
