Freedom, mobility – who doesn’t love the single life?
You’re free to take risks without worrying about family obligations. You’re mobile so taking a promising career in a new city is no big deal. There is a world of opportunity and the only person you have to ask permission is yourself. Awesome right? Of course! But there’s still a need for a financial plan if you want to have a prosperous future and strong retirement fund.
For example, couples tend to have shared expenses, or have their partners income should they be laid off. Single people don’t usually have that kind of luxury. Maintaining lifestyle and building wealth for singles just means that there are different goals and strategies that need to be put in place.
If you’re single, your priorities and timelines are your own. But you still need a plan and it helps to have someone to talk to. Whatever dreams you have or places you’d like to go, we’re here to make sure you get there.
Some of your top priorities probably include:

Coaching (fee-only service) – Your friends and family are great sounding boards, but you may not always want them to know how much you make, have to invest or want to spend on certain areas of your life. Sometimes you may just want a second opinion. Whatever situation you’re in, a financial coach can help you overcome obstacles and make confident decisions that align with your goals. You’ll be held accountable for your actions and spending keeping you on a clear path to the financial future you’ve been dreaming of.
It’s important to plan for the good and bad in life.
Since you’re the master of your domain, you need to be realistic with your vulnerabilities. That includes making sure that loss of work, illness or any other kind of life event that takes you away from any income producing activity will greatly affect your ability to live – let alone comfortably. The rule of thumb is to have three months worth of expenses saved. But as a single, you’ll probably want to consider some insurance. For you, we recommend disability or critical illness.
