Podcast97: The Mexican Fisherman……..

23rd July 2018

Welcome to Ireland’s only dedicated Financial Planning & Personal Finance Blog & Podcast. Last year we won the award of ‘Ireland’s Best Finance Blog’……we have re-entered that same competition again this year, and will hear how we get on over the coming couple of months…..this might just be akin to the ‘difficult second album’!! As we approach our 100th Podcast we have really tried to focus on the areas that our readers and listeners get in touch with us about and who come to us for help on an individual basis…..we are on a mission to help people to achieve what is important to them, and stay authentic and true to our values in the process. If you have any questions or have suggestions on how we can make this site the best possible resource it can be please do drop me a mail directly here.

Speaking of Financial Planning there is one short story which, for me, sums up exactly what Financial Planning is all about, and the part it plays (or not!) in people’s lives. I first read it about 3 years ago and have often thought about sharing it here, but perhaps felt it wasn’t ‘financy’ enough. That view changed when I was working with a really motivated and hard-working person recently, who was really consumed and motivated by growing her business (which she loved in fairness!) and making sure she made the most of the financial situation she finds herself in. I shared this story with her, and it really resonated with her. I am not going to pretend that it changed her life dramatically over-night but she did say that it gave her a little perspective on what is real importance to her both now and into the future….I hope you enjoy it!
