What is a Rich Life for You?: In my experience, most people want balance in their life and I am no different. I love my family, my friends, my profession, sport and travel. If I am dedicating my time, effort and energy to these areas on most days (without neglecting any area) – I am leading a rich life.
In my work life, I am on a little bit of a personal crusade to restore faith in the financial planning profession. People often have a poor relationship with money and essentially want help to achieve their personal rich life goals. I thoroughly enjoy being the trusted financial partner that can provide that guidance with quality, honesty and integrity.

What is a Rich Life for You?: A Rich Life for me is living a balanced life doing the things that I love and doing them passionately. When I think about my Rich Life I remind myself that there is no such thing as a work-life balance, it’s all life. If there were such a thing as a work-life balance, it would mean that I only really ‘live’ two days a week.
For me living my Rich Life means helping people and developing long-lasting relationships. It’s spending quality time with family and friends, enjoying a nice bottle of wine (and of course great food) or going on that holiday I’ve always dreamed of.

What is a Rich Life for You?: A rich life for me means having fulfillment in what it is I am doing with my life professionally and personally. A meaningful life is created by having meaningful work and I’m a true believer in this. I build close and meaningful relationships that I want in my life and invest my time and life in areas that I choose. I don’t make a decision because I have too, I do it because I choose to. One of my favourite quotes is “Life is what you make it, the person in your way is you”. This is exactly how I intend to live my life with fulfillment and gratitude for what I’ve been through, achieving and will achieve in the future.
A rich life for me will mean that I have been able to achieve what I want to achieve in life, build the relationships I want, travel and create memories and experiences with family and friends and have a family one day that I’ll be able to provide for, nurture and be my world.
