The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

Create and Grow your wealth

If you are like most people, one of your goals in life is probably some level of financial success.

But you know, few people actually achieve it. They live from week to week, have little to show for their hard work, and often end up receiving government pensions in retirement. 

They don't have direction. They don't have a plan. And they don't have the expertise.

It's hard to hit a target you can't see.

Don't be one of those people.

The solution is to have someone wise, experienced and reliable to coach and guide you, and help keep you accountable. Someone who will help you achieve your financial goals for you and your family.

My Story

My parents earned good incomes and were successful throughout their working lives. Unfortunately they now have almost nothing to show for their years of hard work. Truth be told, they are struggling financially.

Not thinking about their future when they were younger - not investing, making the common financial mistakes of under-insuring, lack of planning, being over confident in their financial ability and taking unnecessary risks with their money (without realising it) has resulted in a future that looks uncertain and bleak.

They had very few options but to go back to work and get assistance via a government pension. 

I see this trend being repeated time and time again throughout different age groups in Australia. I know what money can do and what lack of money will do.

Helping people avoid the common mistakes, assisting them with the right strategies and knowledge, and seeing them on the path to financial success, gives me tremendous satisfaction.

That's why this is more than just a career choice to me. It's a mission.

Wealth is not about having a lot of money. It is about having a lot of options.

How I work

I'm not interested in selling financial products, like insurance and investment schemes. I'm interested in providing practical advice that gets you results.

I always start by understanding your situation, your dreams, objectives and values. Only then can I develop strategies to help you get the outcomes you desire. 

I genuinely care about people making the right decisions with their money. I've seen too many people suffer financially due to making the wrong financial decisions.
