Description

If you’re like most young professionals, you’re probably earning a good income but are struggling to make real progress growing your savings and investments. When you’re getting started it’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the information available about the best thing to do with your money. It’s also hard to know the best next steps for you to take and how to get started. 

In the session you’ll build your understanding of how to increase your savings while maintaining guilt-free spending. You’ll develop an understanding of investment basics and how to take your savings to the next level, walking away with an action plan of what you need to do next and how to get started. 


About Ben Nash

Ben is a Financial Adviser who founded Pivot Wealth to help young professionals make smart money decisions and strike that balance between loving life now and setting up their ideal future. He believes that while money itself doesn’t make you happy, it will give you options and the freedom to pursue the things that WILL make you happy.

Pivot was born out of Ben’s frustration at seeing far too many people earning good incomes but wasting the opportunities this income could be providing them. Ben has found you can spend money on the things that are most important to you now, AND set yourself up to be able to keep doing that in the future. It just takes a bit of clarity and the confidence to make it happen, which Ben loves helping people achieve. 

Taking action is the most powerful thing you can do when it comes to money, but first you need to know the rules of the game. As a self-confessed finance geek, Ben educates you about how to make the most of your money. In Ben’s workshops he draws on practical experiences from working with hundreds of young professionals to provide simple and tried and tested money strategies that actually work, delivered in an easy to understand way.

11 April 2016 • Mo Money, Less Problems

Firstly, there were a number of positives to the workshop (the cupcakes were Delish and the brief sounded fabulous), but unfortunately I also experienced a few problematic elements. First, the venue (in Pitt st in a very business environment) was, I felt, not in keeping with the culture of Workshop. It was quite a confronting, corporate environment, very sterile and absolutely reflected the traditional notions of 'the man'. I also felt that the event was over catered-a lot of emphasis, time and no doubt my fee was spent on sandwiches, alcohol and fancy soft drinks. I would have much preferred more time spent on financial information and a lesser fee. Finally, and most importantly, the workshop was not overtly informative. It promised to 'cut through the jargon'- yet Ben talked prinarily in profession focussed language. It also promised to help us organise our finances and take control of them so that we could have a plan that reflected our lifestyle. This did not happen. The main take away message from this workshop was to come and see Ben at his firm for further advice at an additional cost. While I understand that everyone's finances are different, I felt that the course promised a generalised plan for the target group of young professionals. I do not feel that this fulfilled my expectations or the brief of the workshop.
