Why We Believe Athletes Can Help You

Category: Financial Freedom
I’ve been running a media business in finance for a very long time. 20 years in fact. And this is not my first show. But I’m particularly excited about it for one very good reason. This season in our program Secrets of The Money Masters, we take five professional athletes on a journey to reach their financial goals.

What’s this got to do with you, you may ask? Lots. Because we all know Australians love sport. Athletes are amongst the most revered in our society. But the interesting thing about this is, when it comes to money, athletes are not any different from you and me. They don’t have all the answers, and they need good advice to make the right financial decisions.

For some reason, many people assume that those who are champions on the sporting field are also winners with money. In reality, this is rarely the case. You only have to watch the HBO series Ballers to see that on a grand scale – professional footballers blowing money like water and ending up with nothing.

Our athletes in Australia of course are a little different. They don’t earn as much as US sports stars, but they also don’t tend it blow it on wild purchases. However, they do need financial advice and knowledge around investing to make their money work for them.

By watching this series you will learn how to identify your most important goals for the short medium, and long term, and to make an assessment on what may be holding you back with money. (In fact, you can take the free quiz on my website, here.) You will also see what a high-quality financial planner can do you for you – how they can be your money coach and help you make the right plan to set you up for the future you want.

Learn more about professional investing and how to think about investing your money for the long term. While most of us know a thing or two about property, investing globally in shares is something many of us know little about. This program shares knowledge from some of the most successful investors around the world and breaks it down into key messages that anybody can grasp.

While the athletes in the show are more than worthy of help to get their financial lives in order, our bigger aim is for all Aussies to see how much they too can benefit through planning and investing if they are willing to open up and be vulnerable about their finances the way the athletes in our show were willing to be. Even better, the organisation that made this program possible, OneVue, has even created starter investment portfolios for those who want to grab the opportunity to start investing today.

Our athletes are all at very different stages of their life – and I’m sure you will relate to some more than others. But take careful note of their financial goals and what it will cost to get there. Because you will need to do your numbers too. While I believe in the power of good financial planning, whether you choose an adviser or not, now is the time for you to think about your financial goals – your future self will thank you!

Enjoy the program including our panel talk show every Saturday 12noon on Channel 9, starting 29th June. My panel guests will be the ‘who’s who’ of the finance industry, and we are all there with one purpose in mind – to help YOU.

Until next time,

    And once again the regulator finds a way to stop ordinary people from getting advice by placing high costs on people who do the right thing. If a finfluencer is actually trying to scam someone, it would not be hard to operate outside Australian jurisdiction.
