This might be a strange question, but how do you feel about money?
We ask this question when we first meet with people, and often find that it can be challenging to answer! We dedicate time to helping you explore this though, as your answer determines your money mindset and allows us to provide the best strategy to activate your wealth.
The way you think and feel about money, and your behaviour towards it, is often developed through your experiences with money growing up. For some people, they’ve grown up in an environment where money was scarce and had to be rationed accordingly, and for others there was a steady income stream that provided all that the family wanted and needed.
Focusing on this can help explain why you might be risk adverse or alternatively love buying the latest “toys”! Ultimately, it gives you a better understanding of yourself, and in some cases, your partner, who may have had a different experience with money. It then creates a great starting point to make changes that can lead to more choice and opportunity.
The changes we talk to people about implementing don’t have to be “turn-your-life-upside-down” changes. In fact, most of the time it’s really just about awareness.
By being aware of your spending habits, and of the emotions associated with your purchases, you can gain a better understanding of where your money is going and the long term effects of your spending patterns. Small changes can lead to increased savings and being more proactive about identifying additional income streams.
We love having these open and honest discussions to explore how we can help you activate your wealth with the resources and time you have available.

The people we help find that this 30-minute Zoom or phone call allows them to decide if our approach is worth exploring further.
