Are you happy to pay an IFA?

Have you ever thought about the different activities that some people love to do….and others just think of as a complete chore? Examples that spring to mind are gardening, cooking, and DIY. And of course, looking after your investments. If you don’t want to do it then you could just pay an Independent Financial Advisor (IFA) to do the job for you. That’s fine if you are happy to hand over a large percentage of your hard earned cash.

I don’t particularly like cooking but that doesn’t mean I eat out every night. It wouldn’t make sense financially (and I’d get fat!). And neither does paying an IFA. But I know many of you will anyway.

If you have no interest in taking control of your own financial future, then this video — and the FIRE Revolution training programme — are not for you, otherwise please check it out.

Many activities fall into the ‘hobby or chore’ camp and we all avoid the ones that we consider to be chores and embrace the hobbies.  If you do have an interest in investing and securing your own financial future, why not consider investing in some high quality training and get stuck in. You’ll be pleased you did.

Remember that nobody has as much interest in your future as you do. So it makes sense to stop paying an IFA, fund managers and investment platforms and start to invest in yourself instead.
