So winter is here and we are halfway through the year already. If you are anything like me, you are wondering how it all flew by so fast. Life today is so busy; it can be hard to keep track of our long term goals when we get caught up just navigating the day-to-day.

Mid-year however is the perfect time to give your finances a health check. As the cold creeps in, and you are thinking about comfort food and staying warm, it’s also worth thinking about what you want to achieve for the rest of the year, both financially, and in your life.

Have you given your finances their mid-year checkup?

When I started this journey to help Australians prepare for their financial future, I was motivated by a couple of factors. Firstly, after working for 24 years in the finance industry, I felt I simply knew too many amazing people who could help people to keep them to myself.

I read with much interest the new societal trend taking hold - retirees who start a second career after retiring from their first. Over 60's who decide that they can earn more income as they live longer through exploring the passions that they were not able to in their youth.

Do you know how I can tell if someone is in too much debt? It’s not by looking at their bank account. Rather, it’s by looking at their stress levels.

While some people may actually be in too much debt and not stressing about it, the majority of people find that the more debt they are in the higher their stress levels are.
