Meet Betty-Anne Howard - She wants to Make Your Dreams A Reality
I know it can sound unrealistic, or even downright naïve, to say “I’m going to make your dreams a reality”. But here’s the thing – it isn’t!
Before becoming a financial planner, I worked for almost two decades in social work, teaching, and counseling. One of the most important parts of that work is asking questions, and learning as much as you can about a person’s unique needs, strengths, challenges, and dreams for the future. I’ve always felt driven to bring that same holistic and respectful approach to the financial services sector.
I believe too much of financial planning has to do purely with money, while ignoring what I call “the meaning behind the money”. After all, the point of financial planning isn’t to make money, it’s to make lives. It’s to help people do what they want to do.
Once we discover what really matters to you, we work together to create strategies, and utilise tools that can absolutely make your dreams a reality. Whether you want to improve your financial literacy, plan for the future while enjoying the present, or be more philanthropic while paying less tax, I can get you there.
Financial planning shouldn’t be a chore, or an order, it should be an invitation. So, what would you like to do?Betty-Anne Howard

That early experience of motherhood increased her resolve to never let anything come between herself and her daughter (that would be me). When I was older she would sometimes share how difficult those first years were for her.read more
