Love is in the air…but quite commonly, not with your finances. And is there really any wonder?
In daily life, and in the news, numbers and statistics are thrown around in our newspapers and magazines, and across our screens. A billion here, a billion there…
And yes, some people love this stuff. Others- probably the majority- couldn’t give two hoots. For many, it just adds to the confusion in this complicated world where you either get it, or you don’t.
And that’s what makes it easy to neglect your own finances. Like a lot of long term relationships, it’s not going to be a total breeze.
You need to know what you love, and only then can you start to organise your finances based on this. If you plan to live adventurously, chances are your financial planning will differ from your neighbour who plans to live a quiet life. You can’t plan for an aspiration that doesn’t exist.
Once you know what you want, you can take the first step towards achieving these goals. Whether it be through the form of a phone call, or a face-to-face meeting with a financial adviser, they will not only take the hassle out of financial planning, but will teach you to love what you’ve got, and how far it can get you.
