Setting Your Life Goals
The words “financial planning” may not sound very exciting but here at TAG we will tell you otherwise. Whilst money and finances often gets thrown in the “too hard basket” for many families, the reality is that when it comes to your finances, effective and strategic planning is the key to living a happy and fulfilling life.
“But money doesn’t buy happiness” you might say!
We agree that money alone doesn’t equal happiness and we certainly don’t believe that you need to be a millionaire to enjoy life. What we do believe in, however, is that effective money management will give you the freedom to “say yes” to the good things in life.
Proper financial planning means that you are free to say yes to that overseas holiday, yes to buying your own home and yes to a financially secure and enjoyable retirement.
So what does financial planning involve?
In order to put together an effective financial plan it’s important for us to understand your own personal life goals. Like anything in life, if you have a clear idea of where you want to get to you can identify the steps needed to get there. Some of the common goals our clients identify in our initial meetings include:
