Show Notes

Discover what’s possible when financial freedom is in your pocket. 

Have you ever struggled with managing money? Do you sometimes feel ashamed because you find it hard to reach your financial goals?

While this can be a very common challenge among autistic people, today’s guest, Andrew Komarow, encourages his clients to acknowledge themselves for their present financial capabilities and maintain a positive attitude. Small and simple steps can go a long way towards bigger goals.

This episode with Andrew Komarow was originally released in May 2021. We’re re-releasing it today to offer useful financial tips for those who may still need them.

Andrew Komarow is a Certified Financial Planner and Certified Neurodiversity Professional. He’s also the Founder of Planning Across the Spectrum, a company based out of Connecticut that specializes in helping individuals, families, and employers of those with autism and other disabilities to pursue financial independence. 

In this conversation, we discuss:

  • Andrew discovering his own autism as an adult and how it affects his life

  • Common struggles with financial planning that autistic individuals face 

  • Services offered by Andrew’s team at Planning Across the Spectrum

  • Alternatives to guardianship

  • Benefits of hiring neurodiverse staff
