Full Show Notes:

What is Financial Confidence?

We already know that confidence counts for a lot in life. It helps people get their dream jobs, tackle challenges, and overcome obstacles others consider impossible. Financial confidence is the same thing - and a very important part of your financial well-being. When you are financially confident, you have control of your financial situation and have a much stronger chance of fulfilling your goals.

According to Adrian, financial confidence all starts with having the right insurance coverage, diversifying your investments, and knowing how to handle unexpected events. However, this trait isn't just about knowledge and skills—it's also about having the guts to take action. You need to take consistent action, develop the resilience to bounce back from setbacks, and have a positive mindset to stay on track. It's also about feeling empowered, in charge, and ready to take control of your financial future.
