My name is Greg Mawer and I believe that financial empowerment has the ability to change the world. I know so many people who earn 'good money' but are still stuck in the 'rat race' because of spending too much on material possessions that don't make them happy. I believe you have to determine what you want to do with your life, make a timeline, quantify it (in MS Excel of course) and achieve it.
I watched a TED talk which summarised my thoughts on the matter perfectly:
“There are thousands and thousands of people out there living lives of quiet screaming desperation who work long hours, at jobs they hate, to enable them to buy things they don’t need to impress people they don’t like” Nigel Marsh.
During the day I am Director of Mawer Consulting, a consulting firm in Western Australia that helps business owners achieve what they desire through strategic business advice, taxation and accounting.
I hope you enjoy my collection of thoughts which will hopefully help guide you on your journey to financial empowerment.
