They say that money doesn’t make you happy. Maybe that’s true, maybe it isn’t. Today I’m talking to a good friend about financial wellbeing, what it is, and how we can get some!
This podcast is brought to you with the help of Seven Investment Management, a firm of investment managers based in London. They specialise in multi-asset investing, bringing institutional investing techniques to ordinary people like you and me. 7IM put their name to my show and to my site because they believe in what I’m doing, trying to get decent, easy-to-understand financial information out to the world. I’m very grateful to them for their support.

I’ve said before that money is not an inert force. It has incredible power to inspire the best and worst in people. It can be used to build up or to tear down, for good purposes or evil. It has the power to affect how we feel, and our financial wealth, or the lack thereof, can lead to great anxiety.
Today I chat to my good buddy Chris Budd, who is a financial planner of many years’ experience. He’s also a qualified life and business coach and is well placed to get into the nitty gritty of how money works and how we interact with it. I’ll let him do the talking.
In this session, you'll discover:
- The five areas of our life which impact our sense of wellbeing
- The five elements of financial wellbeing
- How to put things in place to maximise your adoption of those five elements
- The role of an adviser in it all
- Why simplicity in financial affairs is a key factor
- Chris' own story of achieving a sense of wellbeing in his life and work
There is so much to be gained from adopting the principles Chris has talked about, and digs deeper into in the book. Having a healthy relationship with money has so many knock-ons to the rest of our lives, that financial wellbeing must surely be a priority for all of us.
