Financial Planning Financial Planning When It Matters Learn Money. Live Better
Who our customers are: You’ve finished school or college and have gone out to the working world but there’s something missing. You feel like you’re meant to have it all figured out, and yet, you don’t know where you are going, and sometimes even where you stand. Although you’ve been working and get paid more than the past you still end up with little or nothing left at the end of the month. Then when you do have some savings you don’t know what you should be doing with it.
You’re trying to navigate improving your career, travelling the world, getting married, buying a home, paying off debt, pensions, investing, starting a family, trying to save, and more.
You are not sure where to start. We can help.

What Our Clients Say:
What makes us different: The standard financial planning model is based around helping older established people, who are already quite wealthy. They often have a high income, lots of assets and need to focus on getting the right financial products.
We work with younger people that are often not yet wealthy, but are interested in improving their personal finances. We take people in their 20s, 30s and 40s; and focus on setting goals and building wealth. We don’t sell financial products to you, but focus on giving you the skills and knowledge needed for your current stage of life. This is a fee-only financial planning process so you will only be encouraged towards a financial product if it is necessary and appropriate considering your situation.
We want to get you there.
We use a collaborative model where we work with you and develop the approach as you improve. We work on giving you a self-reinforcing model that compounds results and requires less effort with time.
Learn the skills and habits you need to be financially successful

10 Things We Deliver to Our Clients 1. A Vision of the Future – We get you passed the “next week, next month, next year” thinking. We make you dream of what your future could look like, set lofty goals, and then follow up with the actions to move towards them. 2. A Target to Aim For – In school you are trained to aim for the clear targets in front of you with tests, exams, and one step neatly leading to the next. As an adult you need to set your own targets. We push you to do this for multiple areas of your life. 3. Timelines – Without timelines a goal has no structure. We help you set timelines that will work and honestly discuss what trade-offs might be needed to make your goals a reality. 4. Confidence – Wins compound. We get you to celebrate and acknowledge early wins to give you the confidence to continue when it gets hard, and progress seems slow on the longer-term goals. 5. Dreams – Progress allows you to upgrade your ambitions. Once you see more and more things are actually achievable, you can make bigger goals. 6. Respect – By respecting yourself, your time and effort, and your money, you can stop wasting time and really progress towards your goals. Once you realise the effort required to get what you want you will also gain more respect for the people that got you to where you are now – your parents, friends & family, partners and supportive colleagues. 7. Accountability – We hold you to what you say. If you say you want something but continually don’t put in the effort required, we will be there to call you out and hold you accountable. 8. A Story of Success – We will show you how the narrative of money as an emotional drain is not true for you. We guide you to your personal version of success where we can remove money as an issue. 9. Emotional Comfort – Financial stress causes and exacerbates most other problems in life. By removing this, we let you relax and focus on other areas of your life. 10. A Model of Success – Financial empowerment changes lives. Most people can never be financially successful because they don’t know what good looks like and can never get to this intangible idea. We show you a working model of success and fit this into your personal situation and dreams.
Cost: €2,000 for the 12-month comprehensive planning process. A deposit will be required at the start of the process. The rest of the fee can be paid up front or in instalments throughout the process.
