Have you ever wondered why financial freedom seems out of your reach? Well, you’ll be pleased to know that it has nothing to do with interest rates and investment properties. And everything to do with your behaviour.

Sometimes we get so far down the track with life, that it becomes harder to see what’s right in front of us, until it’s too late. Having financial success is one thing, but being happy and fulfilled is another. Having one does not necessarily lead to the other. Health scares, family deaths, and unresolved conflict often lead to life long regrets. So how do you make sure you don’t look back on your life with regret?

In the final episode of a five-part series, financial educator and author Vanessa Stoykov details the way ACTION contributes to how financially comfortable we are - both now and later in life. Vanessa is joined by CEO Bryce Doherty to dive deep into the lessons learned from fictional characters pulled from Vanessa’s finance novel ‘The Breakfast Club for 40-somethings.’

Meet Brad

Meet Brad

Brad Malone is the star of his high school friends. The one who left Australia to work in Silicon Valley, and created his own tech start up, which has been wildly successful around the globe. His wealth is in the billions, and while based in the US, Brad regularly travels to his offices around the globe. With no kids, and his family in Australia kept at a distance, Brad dates but never commits. Until of course, he sees his high school sweetheart Josie at the reunion.

Will Brad make it work with Josie? Can he mend his relationship with his parents? Can he have success and a personal life that is happy and meaningful?

Key takeaways:

By nature, the future is never certain so we can’t wait to have all the answers to begin.

A future with financial success at the expense of relationships is no success at all.

How making the future we want only comes when we take action.

The direction and insight a financial planner can offer.

It’s about giving yourself permission to change.’

People can become so focused on what they’re trying to achieve, they can become more and more narrow.’

And what a shame that people sound busy - not I’m happy or I’m going really well.’
