I meet many special women clients who feel stuck in jobs that don’t fulfil them; who feel trapped in uncomfortable separation agreements rather than divorce, who feel so burdened by all their family responsibilities that they have no time to think about what their lives in flow could look like. Women who hold no power over their money and women who feel undeserving, shame and not living their lives to the fullest.
I want you to be inspired to take control of your life and your money. Because the more you focus on your money, and pay attention to your relationship with money, the more your money will do for you.
I have written this book for all the special women in the world. Women who feel inspired to make change, to be change and to lead change. The money mistakes we make are real, but they are not unique – we all make them. I hope that the 31 action steps inspire you to put money where it belongs – as an enabler of your life plans.
“Be inspired to pause. Reflect on your life and your money, and transition into a whole new chapter where money aligns with meaning” – Kim
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the world to its knees. It has forced us to pause and to rethink our way forward. When it comes to your retirement, I want you to make informed, objective decisions. Amidst the uncertainty, many of us feel anxious and overwhelmed about the future of our retirement plans and our money. This is a time of change, a time for reflection and learning, and also a time of unlearning old habits that will not serve you in your life going forward.
The actions that Kim recommends in this eBook, will guide you to transition from where you are now, to where you want to be. It contains a mix of practical financial and retirement planning advice, as well as the harder transition work on your money beliefs and habits.
This eBook will guide you to recalibrate your life, your time, and your money to start a new journey.
While most books on retirement focus on money and making sure there is enough of it, Kim believes that your finances are inextricably entwined with the dreams you have for your life.
This eBook is about inspiring you to believe in a life that goes beyond the day you retire. The Ten Retiremeant™ Truths is a back-to-basics reminder of the solid foundation on which we can forge our futures in retirement. In this eBook, you will find an amended excerpt from Retiremeant: Get More Meaning from your Money, available in hard copy. Kim’s approach brings a unique and inspirational perspective to preparing for retirement: all the money you have spent your life earning should now be working for you and giving you the life you want.
Kim looks holistically at all aspects of the person retiring – not just their money. Keeping work, money, play, purpose, health, giving back, relationships and learning in delicate balance during the second half of life is a top-of-mind – and heart matter for Kim, whose message is that creating your best life cannot be left to chance. You have to play an active role in getting ready for retirement, to enable you to live without regrets.
