With my prestigious B-School degree, getting a good job was never too much of a doubt for me. So naturally, money was never going to be a problem. Or at least that’s what I thought. But when I laid my finger in a random part of the world map every once in a while and took a trip to the place where my finger stopped, financing it became a problem after a certain point. It wasn’t like I was going to stop travelling, but after I had to take a personal loan to finance my trip to Peru, I knew something needed to be done.
A financial planner is like a doctor for your finances. The planner wanted to know everything – my income, regular expenses, financial aspirations, liabilities…everything! But with this professional advice, I was able to travel AND meet my daily costs, without any need for loans. I was able to plug unnecessary expenses and put my money into use more smartly. I have also made some investments for a change! And all this without compromising on my fascination for travel… next stop, Timbuktu!
