Early adulthood:

At this stage you want to make sure you are putting your income to good use.

Bad debt
The temptation to spend more than you earn is easy. Avoid a “quick fix” solution like getting a credit card that charges interest rates at around 20 per cent. Instead do what the financially savvy do: budget. Set yourself a goal and contribute regular amounts each month. It doesn’t have to be complicated, try an app like ASIC’s Money Smart app.

1.  Take control of your finances

If you want to secure a comfortable retirement you need to get real about how you manage your finances.

Yes life is short and it is important to live a balanced life. But the key word is “balanced”. Odds are you might live until age 90. Has it occurred to you that you could be retired for longer than you were working?

Last week I attended the National Community Foundation Forum*, a gathering of community foundations from around Australia.

Firstly, what is a community foundation? Community foundations are independent, localised community focussed philanthropic organisations. In a nutshell they are local people giving time, skills and money for the benefit of their own community.

Our firm, Hewison Private Wealth, is a generous company – supporting Sacred Heart Mission through its charitable arm, the Hewison Foundation, but also allowing all staff days of leave to volunteer at the Mission itself. And that is how the seven of us found ourselves leaving the suits at home and stepping into gear fitting for the preparation of the lunch at the Sacred Heart Mission.  Hair nets and all!

None of us had commercial kitchen experience, except for Simon, one of our Directors/Financial Advisors who worked through his youth at McDonalds…not quite the same thing!

As an AFL tragic, to see the Richmond FC (and the Western Bulldogs last year) break a 37 year premiership drought to become 2017 Premiers brought a tear to my eye. Never before has a team come from so low on the ladder the previous year (13th) to claim the holy grail of Australian sport (apologies Rugby fans but it’s a fact).

So how did it happen?

Richmond are by no means starved of talent but the AFL educated will tell you that their opponents, Adelaide, were more deserving and had more star players on the ground.
