Most of us are pretty familiar with goal setting. Whether it’s losing a little weight, working towards a promotion or building a new house, the easiest way to reach our goals is to break them down into small, bite-sized pieces that are realistic, achievable and timely.
Reaching financial goals is no different yet most people don’t approach their finances in the same way they might approach other goals in life.
At Hennelly Finance, we understand money and finances can easily scare people, particularly during a cost-of-living crisis. However, fear can cause more damage than good, preventing positive action that can not only help manage your costs now, as well as planning for a comfortable retirement in the future.

• reducing taxes;

• the development of an educational fund for children or grandchildren;
• saving for a holiday or a family wedding;
• passing a business on to next of kin;
• exiting a business;
• taking long term care of a disabled child or sibling; and
• making charitable donations.
How does financial planning work?
Your financial planner will sit down with you and take some time to understanding your current position, as well as your hopes and goals for the future.
They will then review the current state of your finances and give you a set of recommendations to put you on the path towards achieving what’s important to you.
Reviewing your finances should be an annual event.
Life has a way of throwing curve balls at us and changes to our work situations, marital and family status, tax and legislation among other things have the potential to knock us off course.
With proper reviews and monitoring of your financial situation your financial advisor can help you manage change and even identify opportunities that help you reach your goals sooner.
