Carl Richards, a Certified Financial Planner, has a knack for using sketches to break down money concepts into the fundamentals.
They have helped readers gain a better understanding on how to not let their emotions cloud their investing decisions, figuring out their financial needs, and how to weigh the value of time and money.

Numbers Vs Emotions
With his sketches Carl bypasses long posts about what people should be doing with their money and instead shines a light on the fears and questions we have about money.
When we were talking about his new book The One Page Financial Plan, I asked him where he got his sketch ideas and how long it takes to go from idea to being posted in the NY Times.
Some of my favorite sketches Carl has done are included with his money column in the NY Times.
- The Trap of Too Many Choices
- Talking Numbers With Your Children
- Tracking Your Finances, One Number at a Time
