When we meet with our clients we spend most of our time talking about what has happened in the last year, and how clients are going in terms of reaching their goals. One of the main goals for our clients is having a financially comfortable retirement.
As a consequence, we worked out that we do is - 'Help get you to and through retirement'.
While we arrange the financial solutions for people to achieve those goals, we also spend a lot of time discussing health and wellbeing with our clients and how those factors will impact on achieving their goals.
Carey and Peter have worked with Sally Mellor as a Fitness Coach for 5 1/2 and 2 1/2 years respectively, where Sally has worked one on one with each of them with their fitness twice a week.
While the practical impact of the sessions was strength, flexibility, balance and fitness, the outcome of the sessions with Sally also covered our nutrition and mental well-being.
When the opportunity arose to ask Sally to join our team as a Wellness Coach to all our team and their family in August, we jumped at the opportunity.
Sally and her husband Andrew are also long term Moneyworks clients, and when we developed the role of Wellness Coach, it neatly fitted in with our goal of 'helping you get to and through retirement'.
In addition to working half time with the Moneyworks team and their family, Sally is also making her services available through Moneyworks to personal clients. As a special offer to Moneyworks clients in the Waikato/Raglan areas, Sally is available to work with you at subsidised rates on your Wellness and Fitness. If you would like to know more, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or discuss how it could work with your adviser.
Sally will also be writing a Wellness Newsletter every three months that we will send to you - please don't hesitate to let us know if you don't want a copy.
