Making a Difference
To laugh often and much, From "The Pleasure Principle" by Paul Pearsall attributed to Emerson
To win the respect of intelligent people, and the affection of children,
To earn the appreciation of honest critics, and endure the betrayal of false friends,
To appreciate beauty,
To find the best in others,
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social situation,
To know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.’’
From "The Pleasure Principle" by Paul Pearsall attributed to Emerson
You may be surprised to see the quotation from The Pleasure Principle above. I've chosen it to emphasise that getting your philosophy right is fundamental.
Financial Planning is not the end but only the means to the end. It's tragic when some people have spent years climbing up their ladder only to find that it's leaning against the wrong wall! Time must be given to working out what you want out of life and only then can financial planning really help you and give you real value.
For some of our clients, ethical, moral or religious beliefs are the most important; for others social or family matters; many just say they want 'to make a difference' and others simply that they want to get the most out of life.
Whatever your goals are, you should give it some time. Life is not a rehearsal. We discuss your goals and desires, and then help to guide you and construct your financial plan, so that your finances are structured in the best way to achieve what you want.
