Why should you consider Financial Coaching?

No matter where you are in your personal financial life, whether it is that you are struggling to budget and make ends meet, or whether you are looking to buy a home or car, in a confidential one-on-one session, a financial coach can assist you in a co-operative way to ensure that your financial needs are met

  • A financial coach can help you achieve your financial goals and dreams
  • We start by defining your current financial picture
  • Begin with a budget and assets and liabilities
  • Assist you in defining a financial goal
  • Help keep you on track and accountable to your goals
  • On-going Communication and Support

One-on-one personal financial coaching gives you that advantage. With personal financial coaching, you’re mentored over the phone on your schedule at your convenience. You’ll enjoy the support and privacy of an experienced, personal mentor standing by your side as you journey toward financial freedom.

Is a Business Credit Card Helpful?

‘Yes’ –is the answer that’s coming out almost immediately. That is true at least for most businesses (especially small businesses). Before we delve deeper into how business credit cards are helpful, let’s try and understand what a business credit card is.

Put simply, a business credit card is a credit card that is owned by a business and not an individual. To understand this better, you can simply draw an analogy between the business credit cards and business bank accounts, which are in the name of the business as well. Other than that, business credit cards work in pretty much the same fashion as the personal credit cards; with a few exceptions. These exceptions are in the form of flexibility in credit limit, low APRs and some other additional benefits that are available to business credit cards only.

Financial Independence Coach Show Ep2: How do we Naturally create Freedom, Meaning and Wealth?

Daune Elgin has been quoted in saying: “Simplicity of living means meeting life face to face. It means confronting life clearly, without unnecessary distractions. It means being direct and honest in relationships of all kinds. It means taking life as it is …”

Hazel Henderson stated that … don’t wait for anyone to deputize you or authorize you or empower you. You have to just start with yourself … and put one foot in front of the other.

Rupert Sheldrake said that basically morphic fields are fields of habit and they’ve been set up through a habit of thought, through habits of activity and through habits of speech. Most of our culture is habitual… hence the freedom we want is created daily through our daily habitual activities. Should our activities, thoughts, speech constantly be negatively influenced and we ourselves keep repeating this negativity… we will never be able to create the order needed for freedom to exist.

Want to know what this all has to do with budgets, financial literacy and financial independence … watch the in-studio recording, raw sample.

Meaning: Our Judgement of Others

When you meet a man, you judge him by his clothes; when you leave, you judge him by his heart…

This is a Russian Proverb that had me thinking… How many times in life have we looked at others and judge the way they live or even envied their lifestyle?

But … is that which we are seeing really the lifestyle you would want? Is that lifestyle really so glamorous and without care? Or is it a case of abundance in one part of their life and lack in another?

We should rather take the time to investigate and question the individual directly before judging. 99% of the time our perceptions and judgements are completely incorrect. I have met and worked with millionaires, that has not brought themselves a new outfit or vehicle for the past ten years. In the same breath, I have also met and worked with individuals on the verge of bankruptcy that were driving the latest model of their favourite brand vehicle and wore only the latest fashion trends … but in all cases, the story behind the perspective or is not always a story of a true heart, but rather a lost and wounded soul.

Thus – a word to the wise … don’t judge any book by its cover. The pages might be torn and the cover might be tattered … but the story from cover to cover might just stun your mind and make your soul bleed. Whereas the latest release, still on the shelve neatly sealed in the bookstore … is not worth a second read.

For that matter, do we want to be judge on others perspective of us, instead of the true, naturally authentic individual inside … Just think about it

To our continued success,

Financial Independence Coach Show: Testing format and recording

Stepping into a new project can be daunting, especially when it is a completely new arena. Yes, I have been on YFM … but those three sessions was two over the phone and the one in the studio was not even 10min long. Taking these steps into talk radio is a challenging and existing adventure. After episode 1, we decided to record the full session, to be able to post it on our YouTube channel and start getting content follow there as well. For me, it is a way to measure my personal performance for myself.

When you speak to those who know me intimately, they will tell you that I am actually an introvert. Although I have learned … and mastered the skills to be an extrovert, to the extent that almost everyone I meet is convinced of the fact that I am an extrovert, I am an introvert by nature and nurture.

So much so, when I requested a few close friends, clients and family to review the following recording … one of my friends/clients told me that I am being a hypocrite… a hypocrite? … for preaching to him about being your natural self and here I am being … well an introvert, not my lively, bubbly, energetic and all most overbearing self.

Truth be told … sitting in the studio for me is like sitting in my “cave” enclosed in my research, my studies, my creative process and just following the flow of my natural thought process to come to solutions and resolutions. Admittedly, that is not what this show is all about and should we wish to achieve the aim of this show, I will have to change the structure and my presentation. Ultimately this show is for you, the listener, to assist you to move forward. TO enable you to naturally create your own freedom, meaning and wealth!

Michael, thank you for your honesty and brutal feedback. I promise I will adjust the content to reflect the other side of my personality as well…

Without further delay, here is episode 2 of our new show on BrandLive.co.za

With gratitude,

Financial Independence Coach Show Ep1: Test Run …

A journey of a thousand miles starts with (the first step) one step … a Chinese proverb.

I have read this proverb about a million times and every single time I decided to go head-over-heels into something this proverb rings true in my mind.

Who knew when I went to the coffee meeting to discuss education and coaching, I would walk out with a radio show…  In fact, I was even only informed afterwards, who it was that I went to see…

Thank you Samm and BrandLive for this absolutely brilliant opportunity!

The beginning to bigger and greater things … here we go!
