Everyone from glossy magazines to financial institutions harp on about the concept of ‘financial freedom’. So much so that it has actually become a bit of a cliché – something that feels like an unattainable goal in today’s tough economic climate. How will I ever stop worrying about money, you might ask. Or, I have plenty of time to worry about one day when I’m old. I’m sure I can make a plan in 10 years or so.
With any new regime – whether it’s a fitness, diet or financial boot camp you are undertaking – it pays to keep your eye on the end goal. Let’s talk about that for a minute. What does financial freedom look like to you? It’s different things to different people. For some, it might be as simple as getting off the grid – the debt grid that is. Freeing themselves from the vicious cycle of credit cards, loans and other obligations, and getting to that powerful peace of mind of feeling ‘sorted’.
For others, it might mean the choice of quitting a job to spend more time with their kids, to pursue a lifelong passion full-time, to start a business, or achieve a dream of travelling abroad every year. The great thing is - there are no right or wrong answers here. Your bucket list is yours to own. My job is making it a reality.
So where do we start? It’s simple, really. Just like a personal trainer will work out a tailor-made plan of the exercises to do to lose weight or firm up, we’ll share some of our wealth coaching tips to cut the fat from your budget and stretch your financial know-how. Like a nutritionist zones in on unhealthy habits, we’ll give your our advice for leaner living. Every R50, R100 or R500 you save will very quickly add up to a handsome amount to invest each month. An easy way to kick-start an investment portfolio.
Over the next few months, join us on an financial boot camp as we help you transform you spending without dramatically altering your lifestyle or giving up on creature comforts. Some changes will take a bit of effort – just like you might not feel like meeting your trainer some days or getting up for a run at 6am! Some ideas will be so easy you’d kick yourself for not thinking of it sooner.
Then book your free wealth coaching session with us today. Come enjoy a coffee and we’ll chat through your goals, take a closer look at the investments and savings you already have, and create a tailor-made plan just for you. Just call 021 434 8065 and we’ll set it up.
