Money to the Masses

Every journey starts with a single step

I receive lots of emails and messages from the listeners and readers of Money to the Masses on a range of topics. One particular email this week was from a podcast listener who was “beyond panic regarding the rest of my life”.

The listener was concerned about their level of debt and how to plan for their future. They were in their forties with some equity in a property but said they “fundamentally don't know where to start”.

Our personal finances frequently seem overwhelming, but the good news is that there is always a solution. The secret is to focus on identifying and taking those first small steps that will get you towards your goal. A single step in the right direction is better than taking no action at all. If you are feeling overwhelmed I recommend you run through my free Money MOT. In two minutes you’ll have a better idea of where to start and feel much more in control.
