The Financial Wellbeing Book

Ignore the advice you find in books

That’s not to say you won’t find good advice in a book, but how do you know which advice is right for you?

The Financial Wellbeing Book is full of advice with a twist. To structure your finances in a way that suits you, you need to understand what you want from your future – and that’s a lot harder than you might think.

To achieve financial wellbeing that is right for you, you need to decide what you want from your future. The Financial Wellbeing Book is all about recognising what you want to achieve, and planning how to get there.

Understand your motivation

Define your goals

See your challenges clearly

Take control of today

Plan for the future

The book takes you through the five aspects of financial wellbeing, liberally sprinkled with tips and anecdotes. It is concise and action driven, even giving space for writing your notes at the end of each section.
