Rebecca Pritchard, Gladiator and Financial Coach at Wealth Enhancers and 2018 AFA Rising Star shares why health and money are the ultimate blend, her most recent high-five moment and her big hairy audacious goal for 2019.
1. Why financial advice?
I’m a health fanatic and I find money fascinating. Financial advice seemed like the ultimate blend of the two, kind of like being a money doctor.
2. Your most recent ‘high-five’ moment?
I managed to kit-out the kitchen in our new house without buying anything except a fridge. Picking up left-over crockery, pots and pans (and using Christmas gifts) from family garages and friend’s laundries was incredibly satisfying. I saved a fortune and cut down on putting any more ‘stuff’ into the world!
- What are you most proud of?
It might sound an odd one, but my energy levels. I invest a lot into looking after my body and my mind so I’ve got lots of energy to do things that I’m excited for, and learning as I’m getting older that’s not something to take for granted.4. The one word you wish everyone would stop using!
‘Busy’. I worry that it separates us from owning our time and our energy.
5. Early or late new technology adopter?
Surprisingly early, given that I’m not a big tech-head. But I love to try new apps and programs when they pop up. I think it’s years of FOMO (fear of missing out) when I never got into MySpace and Piczo coming back to drive me.
6. What advice would you give to your younger self?
Your drumbeat is different from others, and that’s ok. Keep dancing to that.
7. Your big hairy audacious goal for 2019?
Growing Wealth Enhancers to a community of 1,000 members. It’s a terrifying and an exhilarating prospect!
