Hi, I'm Michael.
My top four most-importantest things are:
1. My family
3. My work
I'm a proud husband and dad to three amazing kids. Of course our family wouldn't be complete without our two cattle dogs, Adelaide and Bentley, and our turtle Ralph. We are a blended family, so we don't get to spend every day together. This means we cherish the quality time we do have together and put as much effort into making it as special as we can.
This means lots of adventuring. We live in a B-E-A-utiful part of the world and it'd be a great shame to miss it. If we aren't at home you can find us camping, fishing, hiking or exploring somewhere out there. My wife and I are all about experiences and we take time to enjoy the little things.
It's my love of family and adventure that inspires me to be the best adviser for my clients that I can. Whether it is building or managing our wealth to ensure we can afford to live the life we want, or protecting the assets and people that matter the most, I am passionate about my work because I live and breathe it myself.
And yes in the background of it all, amongst my many other hobbies, is my love of beer. I'm a huge craft beer fan. I buy it and drink it myself, and I'm pretty good at it! Brewing is a new art to me - give me time - but for now I simply enjoy exploring the different flavours, ingredients and combinations the beer world has to offer. Beer not your thing? Talk to me about any of my other passions, including but not limited to golf, cars, motorcycles, cooking (particularly BBQ) and what my wife has labelled an "unhealthy" relationship with my lawn.
All in all I am a real person who loves dealing with real people. Reach out for a chat if you are the same.
I work on a fee-for-service model. I believe fees should be transparent and represent value for money.
My initial consultations are absolutely complimentary. Generally speaking, any follow up meetings are also complimentary. You won't be charged a fee until you are presented with advice and you are confident that advice is the right solution for you.
Michael was welcoming, easy to understand, happy to answer any questions we had. Michael was genuinely interested in us as clients and in understanding and supporting our situation, referring us to suitable associates.
It was a revelation to discover the anxiety of facing retirement, pensions and survival can be removed. Michael has taken a load from me and has made the transition smooth and stress-free. Every query and concern has been explained in language that I, with no accounting ability, am comfortable with. Now I’m able to get on and explore new interests, not driven by survival needs. Thank you Michael and My Fortress.
