Episode 16: Take the First Step
Every long journey starts with a small step but in what direction? This can be a daunting thought. How about breaking this down and making the direction you want to head in easier to work out and understand.
Join Chris and David as they talk about how you can start thinking about this in small bitesize chunks. This includes some tips on making this a simpler and less daunting task so the journey does at least start. Remember as you go along the financial planning process you start to get more clarity over what you want from life so don’t worry about not having all the answers now, just take a step!!
We also talk about how Chris has been schooling his ‘lucky’ children in the art of budgeting and how the Next Generation of Financial Planners are embracing Financial Planning and Financial Wellbeing.
