“ONLY 20% OF MONEY SUCCESS IS WHAT YOU KNOW, THE REMAINING 80% IS WHAT YOU DO.” The term rich means different things to different people and my career has been spent teaching individuals, from all walks of life, the right knowledge and behaviour so the actions they take around money, are meaningful and relevant to their lives. I’m a big believer that common sense trumps complexity everyday. At CommonCents we work with motivated families to help them achieve a life free from financial stress. Our proven framework, and practical step-by-step actions, help our clients achieve their goals, with more cash to spend on the things they really value. I became involved in the Financial Services industry with the Suncorp group, before taking on a Senior Planning role with NAB Financial Planning. We established CommonCents, in 2011, so I could focus on what’s really important – a client’s financial success. I enjoy getting to know our clients and take the time to understand their family’s hopes and dreams. If you want to chat, call us on 1300 376 781, or come and see us for coffee.
