Accumulating wealth is simple really, but like losing weight, we all know what to do, the hard part is the doing.
We think that wealth accumulation can be achieved in the following easy steps
- Spend Less than you earn
- Invest the difference appropriately
- Set aside a buffer for emergencies
- Use borrowings wisely
- Take advantage of government incentives and minimise tax
- Be Systematic
- Protect yourself your assets and your family
So if its that easy, why isn’t everybody doing it?
Mostly because they don’t know where to start. Financial overwhelm is something we see often. It’s a bit like a kid’s untidy bedroom – it’s going to stay untidy until someone points out the starting point and outlines the steps needed (preferably without raised voices). Having a friend, mentor, study buddy, or dare we say it, a financial adviser will help to keep you on track.
Another reason is that many people don’t know what they want to achieve in life. Setting goals is really hard ,and requires you to think about issues you’d maybe rather not think about, like “Am I going to have to work till I die”? or “What happens to my family if something happens to me?” We’re not afraid to ask you the hard questions, because we want to help you work out the answers. Very often the most difficult question we will ask you is “Why?”
