It’s not as easy as advertised. Some traditional financial industry marketing may have you feeling like your retirement will be a failure if you don’t spend it sunning yourself on a beach or sailing around the Caribbean. Possibly your retirement will be spent working part-time in a new and interesting career, taking care of your grandkids, traveling the world, or staying closer to home and pursuing your hobbies. Planning ahead to figure out what you want to do once “9 to 5” is a thing of your past is an exciting undertaking. Once you know what it is you want to do in retirement, we can help you figure out how to make it happen.
Big news for TCM!
Meet our new addition . . .
TCM Mediation Studio is launched! Find us at www.tcmmediation.ca
John Hewson will head up TCM Mediation Studio and we could not be more proud. Over the last 2 years John followed his passion and became a Qualified Mediator. It’s a natural fit for John who is also a registered social worker and has spent years at the helm of TCM Financial Studio counselling many on their financial future.
“I think what I am most excited about is helping others resolve conflict peacefully, outside the courtroom. We all know people who have had difficult divorces or had trouble resolving business disputes and it does not have to be acrimonious. What I have learned in my training is how to develop an empowering process that allows everyone to resolve their challenges while retaining their dignity even in difficult situations.”
John remains involved in our financial planning business, (we couldn’t let him go that easily) and we love the way he is weaving into TCM Mediation Studio the same stellar principles of TCM Financial Studio: stay focused on the people!
Join us in congratulating John on his continued professional evolvement. WTG Papa John!
You can’t manage what you don’t measure. This is true for any metric you have control over: in business, the weight on the scale, and of course in your personal finances. If you don’t know how much those $6 lattes or $9 pints add up to on a monthly basis you have no idea, and no sense of control, over how much of your income is being spent on these small expenditures. Tracking is easy with a budgeting app, and you may find yourself enjoying one of these beverages even more once you know it’s not throwing off your financial plan.
The basis of a strong relationship is trust. This is true personally, and in business. Of course, this is also the case with your financial planner. If you’re honest with us about your spending and saving habits, we can be honest with you on what you need to do to get where you want to go (financially speaking).
We help our clients make financial decisions looking at all aspects of their financial lives.
