The 7 Common Mistakes in Building Wealth
One of the key objectives of Money and Wealth Planning (Money Management) is to help people identify how much wealth they will need to build over the course of their working lives, in order to create a passive income to provide them with the lifestyle they desire once they are no longer working for a living. The Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) benchmarks the annual budget needed by Australians to fund either a comfortable or modest standard of living in their post-work years. The figures are updated quarterly and provide detailed budgets of what singles and couples would need to spend to support their chosen lifestyle.
For example, the ASFA Retirement Standard shows that a couple who own their own home and are looking to achieve a comfortable standard of living in retirement will need to spend $55,080 a year at today’s prices. To put that in perspective, it would require a retirement “nest egg” of between $500,000 and $1,200,000 in a Superannuation Fund delivering a 6% Return on Investment (after all fees and charges) to provide this level of income, depending on how long the income stream was required to last. ($500,000 would last about 11 years, while $1,200,000 would last about 36 years.) So, how much people want to be able to spend on their lifestyle in Retirement, and for how long, are two key factors in determining the amount of wealth required.
How to Buy An Investment Property without Impacting the Family Budget
It was back in 1999 and I still remember the look on my friend Mark’s face when he told me “there just seems to be too much month left at the end of the money.” Considering he and his wife have four kids that seemed fair enough but you don’t have to have four kids to know that cash flow is tight in a lot of households irrespective of what their income is. The thought of putting extra strain on the family budget of buying an investment property is enough to put it off the agenda indefinitely for most.
In fact, according to the ATO, there are 1,637,872 tax returns lodged in Australia claiming one or more rental properties which, in isolation, sounds like a lot of investors. But given the population of Australia is about 22,660,631 at the moment this means that only 7 out of every 100 people (7.23%) are actually property investors. But how did they do it? How can they juggle their all the household cost AND still have money left to build a Property Portfolio?

Top 10 Reasons to Set up a Self Managed Superfund
In just five years, from 2005 to 2010, the number of Self Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF) grew by 47%* (compared to the growth in superannuation assets within industry and retail funds of 23%* and 21%* respectively).
