A Wealthy Life

Apr 7, 2022

Spreadsheets are a bit like marmite – you either love them or hate them. But in the episode I want to show you why spreadsheets can really help you manage your money and put your goals into perspective. 

This is not about being realistic, because who wants realistic goals?! This is about grounding those goals in realism, and often a spreadsheet can paint a picture with numbers. Do you want to be a millionaire by the time you’re 30? Well, a good spreadsheet will help you see how that is possible and, maybe, if you should re-evaluate those goals to avoid future disappointment. 

Spreadsheets are a wonderful thing, so don’t get past trauma of maths homework put you off!
