Life expectancy for males and females in the western world is 79 & 84 respectively (Reference © Statista 2018) *. The question that has to be asked in both instances is 'is this going to be a gift or a burden'?
Health affects the mind, body, spirit and emotions. It impacts on our relationships, our environment and practical issues such as work and finances. Creating the right environment for physical health and wellbeing is in the main, our own responsibility. If health is an issue, we take advice and with that, the appropriate action.
Stress has the ability to inhibit us and acts as a drain on the body's resources. Worrying about money is, or can be, a major cause of stress so achieving financial (peace of mind) wellbeing is an important part of our health.
With our approach to clients' financial wellbeing covering every aspect of financial planning, it is our goal when working with you as a client, to structure your finances in a way that's appropriate and relevant to you. We must therefore have an understanding of you and what you want from your future.
YOUR FINANCIAL WELLBEING IS BASED ON A COMPLEX PLAN THAT FOLLOWS A SIMPLE PROCESS:
- Understand what motivates you as well as your objectives
- Create a realistic plan that will help you achieve those objectives
- Monitor, manage and review regularly
Financial wellbeing is not always about being wealthy - it's about having enough for the life you want - you have to be able to visualise it. What would you like your future to look like? Who else will it affect? The next steps are to define your objectives - write them down - get to know your 'money personality'. This is all about what you were taught, what you heard and more importantly, what you experienced - evolving into your financial DNA.
