Robert Gignac wants you to know that you are capable of creating the financial future you desire.
But you can’t create a financial future if you don’t know anything about your financial present.
17 years ago, Robert lost his job in IT and realized he was actually doing ok financially. Sure, the money he had accumulated wouldn’t last forever, but as long as he generated some income to fill in the gaps along the way, he would be fine.
Robert only knew this because he had a financial plan in place.
If you are laid off and don’t have a financial plan, the only thing you can do is wonder if you’re going to be ok. You might get stressed out looking for a new job and panic if you don’t find one right away.
With a long-term financial plan, you don’t have to wonder. You’ll know if you’re ok or not.
But this personal finance stuff is really dull so Robert decided to write a book called Rich Is a State of Mind, to try to convince Canadians that taking control of your money is easier than they might think.
A highly sought-after speaker, Robert delivers dynamic keynote speeches and interactive workshop programs to International organizations, financial industry conferences and private clients.
