Summary:How to plan for your pension ? How to build-up assets for the future to work for you ? How to be aware that unless you plan, none has the incentive to plan this for you
Description
This course is a 'How to' in teaching freelancers the art, science and commerce of building assets that are not perishable.

The assets are those that appreciate over time, provide a revenue stream in far future [ pension / annuity ] when a freelancer may not be working or may not be able to work [ health / circumstances ]

The advisory is not purely financial although financial aspects are included. The webinar discusses 'investments' under the Coconut Tree metaphor that will provide revenue stream in future with intelligent investment now - mostly non-financial and do-able
