I’m Chris. To earn a buck I work from home providing outsource solutions for financial planners, which gives me a flexible schedule, so I can spend quality time with my family and friends.
I successfully achieved my Diploma of Financial Planning in 2004. Upon completion I spent a year living and working in Canada. Then, on my return in 2006, I got my first job in the financial planning industry, working as a financial planner up until 2012. Wanting a more flexible lifestyle, I began my own business providing outsource solutions for financial planners.
The majority of my time in the industry focused around superannuation and Self Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSFs). I completed a SMSF short course in 2007 with Kaplan, received the SMSF Specialist Advisor (SSA) Accreditation from SMSF Professionals’ Association of Australia (SPAA) in 2008 and attained a Master Degree in Taxation with distinction at Curtin University in 2015.
How did Super Guy come about?
The creation of superguy.com.au allows me to share my knowledge and my passion with people who can benefit. I truly hope that you get some value from my site.
Continuing to provide services to financial planners and SMSF specialists allows me to remain abreast of current superannuation strategies and the industry as a whole.
Smart Family Budget
More recently, I have founded Smart Family Budget – Goals Based Budgeting for Young Families. I have spent years perfecting the art of budgeting and savings plans and have developed a system (and mindset) that makes managing money and achieving goals simple and satisfying. I have applied financial planning strategies into everyday money management. Forget about traditional budgeting and saving methods, this is the new way.
