Well it’s the cars we drive, the home we live in, and the vacations we take.
It’s the education we provide and it’s the retirement we save for…
it’s living today while planning for tomorrow.
And guess what… your income supports it all!
But what if you were unable to work tomorrow due to an injury or illness? Would you and your family be protected?
Your income supports your lifestyle so consider this; If you could not work tomorrow, how long could you continue your current lifestyle?… days, weeks, months or years?
Accidents and sicknesses happen every day! […]
I don’t know about you…but I feel like someone flicked the switch from summer to fall … overnight!
Holy cow we needed the rain, but I had to light the pilot on the fireplace and turn on the furnace!
For me, this is a signal to start planning my annual trip to Mexico!
(My view in a couple of months!)
Now sometimes people say to me; “It must be nice to go away every winter…”
To which I reply… “It is … and you can too […]
Do you believe it or was your first reaction… “Yeah right, I don’t think so!”
For so many it can be hard, stressful, and depressing. It can be embarrassing which leaves you feeling shameful, guilty, stupid and hopeless. I know, I’ve had my own struggles.
Here are some of my clients’ biggest financial struggles that they’ve shared with me…
- “My biggest financial struggle is being overwhelmed.”
- “My biggest issue is saving! Lord knows I try my best to put away as much money as I can. I am a saver & my husband is a […]
Letting go of the edge…
Ever hear that inner voice telling you there’s more to what you have?
Do you listen to it? …The one that tells you to go for it…and believe.
You should listen, its chatter that matters!
Time to examine the truth about where you are.
Take this little self-assessment quiz to get an idea of what’s true for you:
:: Do you procrastinate on doing things that you know will move you forward?
:: Do you have fear and concerns that prevent you from getting ahead?
:: Do you exist in a fantasy bubble playing mind games with yourself and […]
Talking money of course!
A big reason why many couples argue about money involves differing values and conflicting goals which leads into a battle of; “I’m right … your wrong!”
Here’s why this happens: most couples do not have “Money Talks”. Sure they talk about money in varying degrees – but they don’t get into the ‘nitty gritty’ of their numbers and how the other person feels.
Let’s face it, when cashflow is good, money arguments usually are few – if any.
But when cashflow changes (usually due to less money coming in or expenses going up) […]
Better with age, yes, just like a fine wine! But all those years ago, (if you are over 50) when you were watching Happy Days, did you imagine you’d be stressing about retirement? We grew up on Barbie and Ken, the Beatles and wearing bell bottoms – and now some of us are grandparents! Is it a transition you’re ready for?
Baby boomers (those of us born 1946-1964) have been the most marketed to generation in history. After the WWII there was a huge growth and boom in electronics, gadgets, and an exciting appeal […]
My guess is you don’t want to hide from money you want it to flow and attract it…right? Well the reality is that in order to do that, you have to be willing to open your eyes and know in detail where you stand financially.
We all have to take responsibility; for not only our present behaviours, but past ones too. It’s important that we understand how we have created our current financial reality and why. This is where the proverbial ‘rubber meets the road’ because when we unveil the truths and dig through our money beliefs, the truth is revealed. […]
Aahhh taxes…love them or hate them, they are inevitable. If you have to pay more tax this year, that may mean that you made more money…which is always a good thing! I have found that when you are organized and have a plan, there really should be no stress at this time of year…yet there is! I highly recommend (especially if you are a business!) that you have a bookkeeper and an accountant to help you plan so there are no surprises.
Now if you are getting a […]
