Ask yourself, what went wrong?  Did you:

  • Could you afford those gifts?

  • Did you pay off debts and loans and left yourself short this Christmas?
  • Is your credit card debt getting out of control?

It’s difficult to talk through money with a partner, but once you talk to our team of advisers, we will have you talking about joint life goals before you know it.  Once you have these in place, it’s easier to work towards them and aligning your income and savings to meet those goals.  It may not be a new car or home, it may simply be having the money to have a great holiday together next year.  Simply talking about your goals takes away the difficult things around money.
