There’s a Lot to Look Forward to

As it gets closer to the last quarter of the year, it feels like finally, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. With the vaccination plan rolling out, people are starting to make plans again, and look forward to all the wonderful things in life we have been missing out on in various stages of lockdown.

For me, this year has been about a reinvention – of my work, and how I want to be spending my time. Launching this new website, and the Let’s Get Real about Money framework for inspiring people to take control of their money, has been a labour of love. I feel privileged to be able to invest in a vision that is a true passion for me to work on.

So what can you expect in the future? We are developing a game changing learning experience, which will help you find your path to financial freedom. We are also telling stories about people getting it right, and sometimes wrong, with all the gritty bits. You can sign up to my Breakfast Club newsletter to be inspired to have the right conversations about money and stop putting off getting your financial future sorted. And we will be launching a new podcast, which will give you some laughs and learnings for 2022.

I will be hitting the road more, talking to people across Australia about how to unlearn money habits that are holding them back, and challenging them to think about the life they really want and how they can get on track to get it. I will also be running webinars on kids and money to help parents learn the best ways to set you kids up for their own financial freedom and independence.

With $3.5 trillion set to be handed over in the next decade from baby boomers, we have an incredible opportunity to open up a valuable conversation around inheritance, and the best ways to make the most of what is going to be handed on. We have free checklists to start that conversation in the resources section of the site.

I would love to hear from you on social if you would like to share your money story. The more we talk openly about money, the faster we will kill the stigma of not mentioning finances. With only 45% of Australians considered financially literate, there’s a lot of work to do helping people light the spark of financial learning and take the path to financial freedom.

Finally, congratulations on making it this far in what has been an incredibly challenging couple of years. I have no doubt there is a lot to look forward to, and I cannot wait to share many courageous conversations with you in 2022 and beyond.

Until next time,

Each day I wake up excited to inspire everyday people to open up and take control of their money, regardless of their history, goals, or savings amount. About Vanessa >>
