You know what they say about the word assume … (there’s an old joke in there somewhere).

Of course, what we mean is, when you believe something without question, you can end up misreading the situation and even bypassing opportunity. Whether you’re talking jobs, relationships, or even that old thing called money.

By basing your views on assumptions, you’re simply drawing on past experiences or hearsay without taking each scenario on its own merit. This may position you in a place of perceived comfort and security – but rarely in a place of change.

So, let’s consider this in terms of your finances.

Perhaps you’ll only let your financial advisor make all the decisions for you.  That way, you can be sure your money is invested “safely”.  Or maybe you took a risk once before, got burned by some bad advice, and now you baulk at anything outside the box.  Either way, you’re letting assumptions predict what is true of any new experience – without considering all the facts.

And we all do it.  It’s human nature to look to the past or what’s familiar for guidance.  We seek out the signs and crossroads of what’s come before – to help us navigate our way forward.  But if your finances are not performing as well as you’d hoped, then perhaps your assumptions have let you down.  Just maybe there’s a better way to get what you want.  After all, the classic definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

What if you simply approached things from a slightly varied angle?

Rather than dismissing an idea altogether, you could still let your past insights guide you, while staying open to new alternatives.  Imagine what might be possible if only you would allow yourself to look beyond your preconceived ideas.

So, let’s get back to the concept of change.  If you really want to shake things up and create a life of absolute financial freedom, something has to give.  Just maybe that unfamiliar territory is the thing that could transform your life.

That’s where we come in.  Our financial strategy is certainly a little unorthodox compared to the usual investment methods.  But an unconventional approach is bound to give you an out of the ordinary result.  And isn’t that essentially what you’re looking for?

It’s time to push your assumptions aside and find out what you could be missing out on.  So, give us a call and we’ll gladly open you up to possibilities you could only dream of.
