Episode 57 – Starting a movement with Steve Crawford

Financial advice in some form should be accessible to everyone. Whilst we often associate financial advice with investments and managing cash flow, changing behaviour around money management and measuring progress towards lifestyle goals, does not receive as much attention as it should.

My guest today is Steve Crawford, Advice Leader of The Advice Movement. He sheds light on the importance of financial literacy in today’s constantly shifting economic climate. He discusses his role as the founder of The Advice Movement which is driving change in the way financial advice is provided to the Gen X and Gen Y population. He also shares some of the problems he sees in the financial industry, describes how he and his team seek to solve them and explains how a financial adviser can benefit you regardless of financial status.

Don’t miss this week’s segment of Reuben’s Rant where I share my opinion on Julia Banks defecting from the Liberal Party and why I think it’s not right.

“The fear of making the wrong decision sort of keeps everybody thinking they need to stay inside the system and dependent on it. We’re really just trying to break that right from the outset.” – Steve Crawford
