Baobab is a species of tree that is native to Madagascar, Africa, Arabia and Australia but also lives in other warm tropical places like Hawaii.
The Baobab tree is also known as the ‘Tree of Life’ and its silhouette is well known globally thanks to its prominent role in Disney’s Lion King. Its fruit is a 100% natural superfood that releases energy, strengthens the immunes system and improves digestive health. The Baobab Tree can live for up to 3000 years.
The analogy with this outstanding tree resonates with Baobab Wealth Management’s approach towards financial planning. A mentor of mine in the financial planing business once described investing to be like planting a tree…
“You plant it in the earth, and a wonderful force of nature causes it to take root, and to grow. You don’t dig it up every 90 days to check on its progress. You don’t uproot the tree and store it in your garage over the winter, to protect it from what you regard as bad weather. Though its leaves fall and it stops growing for a season, the tree itself does not die. And even leafless, the tree is still producing oxygen, without which you and I could not live.
Give the tree enough room, enough light, and enough time. It will give you back air and shade and beauty as it grows – and will go on doing so for your children after you’re gone.” (N. Murry)
