Learning can be a painful yet meaningful experience. Growing up as a rebellious adolescent, gave me an opportunity to be a wiser person. I met with an accident not long after I turned 19. I had just received my motorcycle licence then and was aggressive on the road. The total bills for my motorcycle repairs and hospital bills were enormous! Luckily, my parents were able to assist me financially during that difficult moment.
Years went by after the accident and it was like a dejavu when one of my friends got into a similar situation when a car crashed into his motorcycle. He was shocked and petrified that he could not digest what had happened. I offered my assistance by doing the administrative portion of reporting and claiming against the car while he focused on his recovery.
The two incidents made me realise how important to have an insurance coverage and to have a wise person to assist you during that difficult point of time.
Today, I am that wise person and I call myself a Financial Consultant. The past experience has equipped me with the understanding on how to handle such a situation. Choosing a career as a Financial Consultant enables me to help those in need. In addition, it also allows me to plan for my client financial needs during the different stages of their lives through different tools such as insurance, savings and investments.
Most Singaporeans today do not have a proper financial planning and require assistance to do so. A well prepared financial planning coupled by a wise Financial Consultant will reduce the burden when there is an unforeseen event. A professional Financial Consultant will plan and stay with you for all those special and important events of your live such as your wedding day, the birth of your child and even when you retire!
It’s not how much money you make but how much money you keep, how hard it works for you and how many generations you keep it for. (Quote by Robert Kiyosaki)
