Why do I believe in advice?

When you receive advice, you are receiving education. This education is relevant to you personally.  I believe good education allows you to make great and informed choices. With no advice people are left without choices. Our industry gives people choices, direction and comfort to every part of the life or the areas that are most important to them. Great advice is powerful it can make positive change at a personal level, family or business level.

When I am not at work, I am...

Taking children to sport, eating out with friends and as soon as the sun is out enjoying the coast.

What did I want to do when I grew up?

I also wanted to be a teacher right up until year 12 then found myself interested in money and banking. I feel like I found a balance between both in the career that evolved.

Why do I believe in advice?

I worked for an Adviser in my early 20s. I saw the difference he made to his client’s lives and the long-term relationships they had. He was with them through the highs and lows and everything in between. It’s why I became an adviser myself, even though it’s been a while since I stopped providing advice. Whilst I couldn’t learn everything he knew in the 4 years we worked together, what he taught me has stayed with me to this day.

When I am not at work, I am...

With my family. Often at a Taekwondo centre.

What did I want to do when I grew up?

I had a long list of things I wanted to be. It changed from year to year. A doctor and a nurse were both on the list – but I’m far too squeamish for either of those occupations!
