Financial self care

2020-10-28T17:11:33-07:00October 21st, 2020|lifestyle|

I was reading a blog the other day from a US based financial planner and the writer was talking about Financial Self-Care and I just love this concept. Self care is something that is so important to both our physical and mental health that I just love the idea of moving it into the financial realm as well. The writer @Ellevest defined financial self [...]

Spring has sprung!

Summer is just around the corner and it’s my favourite time of year. It tells me that new beginnings are here. New opportunities for growth, fresh starts and spring cleaning (and I don’t just mean your home or wardrobe). The mornings are brighter, the days are getting longer and there seems to be more time to just get stuff done. It also signals to [...]

How good are you at making them? How good are you at making sure those decisions are aligned with your goals? If you have a goal to buy a house or an investment property or save for a post COVID holiday or a new car or anything, what decisions are you making today that will impact your ability to reach your goal?

Connections

There’s one thing that’s really being highlighted around the world right now and that’s the importance of connection. It’s a basic human need that so many of us are being deprived of at the moment and it’s having a big impact on us.

Keeping your spirits high: 50 things to do while you’re stuck at home

Everyone is reacting differently to COVID-19 and the way it's changing our lives. Some are going into panic mode - as witnessed by the bare supermarket shelves, some are ignoring the warnings and the threat - as witnessed by people still going to the beach/river/lake/park/wherever they want to go, some are missing loved ones that they've been separated from, some are frightened about what [...]

Now is the right time to keep calm

There's a whole lot of panic talk at the moment and I don't like it. People are talking about recessions, stock market crashes, toilet paper hoarding - all kinds of stuff that makes our minds go into overload. So in the midst of all this craziness, I'm asking you to remain calm. Things are changing, there's no doubt about it. We need to be [...]

Who’s your money cheer squad?

There is something so amazing about watching someone crushing it. Someone doing something so well that it just leaves you in awe and inspired to go out and do something great yourself. It's even better when it's one of your mates who is doing it - and even better again if it's you doing it! So who, in your world, is doing something amazing? [...]

How will we rebuild?

I've started the year with a whole bundle of emotions. Heartbreak over the destruction and loss of homes, lives, livestock and wildlife. Sheer amazement at the effort, dedication and determination of the fire fighters (how they do that every day I have no idea) and the wildlife rescuers. Inspiration over the fundraising efforts of people like Celeste Barber - that's nothing short of amazing, [...]
