Sinking

We get it! Things are often very difficult financially and can overflow into other aspects of your life … relationships, your health and your work performance. Essentials may get sacrificed and being caught in debt is often a problem. This leads to stress and worry.

This is a tough position to be in and can apply to people and families at almost every income level. The good news is that you can make changes by focusing on the right things.

Make a start by using the My Budget Journey. Work on a budget and then customise your bank account structure to make the budget work. Feel better about money by making a start in the right direction.

Swimming

You have a good wealth base so are in a healthy position for the future, but you often struggle to have enough money to meet your daily needs and significant expenses. This may start to jeopardise your wealth base or desired lifestyle … and that’s a worry for you.

Cruising

Life is great. You have plenty of money for all expenses, and plenty of wealth so are well set up for the future. However, you sometimes take your current financial position for granted and this could put your comfortable position at risk. Now is not the time to take your eye off the ball!

This is where we all aspire to be … but be aware plenty of people in this position get carried away and end up jeopardising their and their family’s future.
