To ‘have someone in your corner’ is a common saying that originated in boxing, where the coach or trainer is in the competitor’s corner offering advice and letting the fighter know how they are going.
There is a bit of a misconception that people in their 60s aren’t employable. But we actually disagree with this.
We see a lot of clients in their 60s who don’t want to fully retire yet. Instead, they want to work part-time, and sometimes this can mean having to look for a new job. Many are put off because they believe they are not very ‘employable’.
We continue with our frequently asked questions today, and this is a fairly timely question as we recently got a new name as part of our rebranding last year; Lighthouse Financial Advisers became Money Over 50 Financial Advisers.
We’ve thoroughly enjoyed recording the podcasts each week and we want to take this opportunity to thank all our listeners for joining us. We’ve always said that we would do the podcast even if we had just one listener, but we’re glad to see so many of you out there! Thank you!
What do all of our clients have in common? They all want the best outcome for their retirement. Everyone does - they want their money to ‘work for them’ in the best possible way. Unfortunately, like everything in life, the desired outcome is not always achieved.
Another great frequently asked question – who exactly are our clients?
Some think that we look after people with a high net worth. And while in some cases that’s true, most of our clients would describe themselves as being ‘everyday people’ – they earn a wage in an average income job. We look after teachers, nurses, engineers, as well as people running their own business.
We are celebrating 10 years in business with a new name; Money Over 50!
That title got your attention, didn’t it?
You’re either pessimistic, or keen to learn how. Well, it’s actually not that difficult. We assume that most, if not all of our listeners have a small amount of money that they could put aside each week. For this particular scenario, we’re going to use $100 as an example.
