Kinard Wealth Management


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!
