This might be a controversial topic to be discussed between two women in their 20s and 30s, who are nowhere near retirement and would consider themselves fairly financially literate. However we're here to tackle the uncomfortable conversations as well the as the fun ones. Welcome to episode 29!
For those of us in adulthood that have a decent relationship with our parents, there comes a time where you suddenly realise your parents don't actually know everything and chances are, there are things you may know more about than them. This of course could be anything, our parents might know more about the specific field they work in, but if we're more literate in finance (i.e. we work in the industry), how are you to approach that conversation with them?
When you realise that perhaps you have more knowledge in this area and you start to go down your own financial-improvement journey, it's natural to think how those around you are doing.
So then what happens if you start to realise that perhaps your whanau aren't in the best position for retirement? Perhaps they're showing signs of spending beyond their means, they're struggling with debt or they haven't thought about.
