Blair also wants Kiwi’s to talk more openly about money. "Money shouldn't be a taboo subject. It’s important to talk openly about your financial situation in order to get support and make changes so you can achieve your goals and realise the benefits of working hard. It also makes you feel good and gives you peace of mind knowing that you’re making progress and you’ve got all the important things covered."
Video topics are:
- Planning: The one small thing that’s holding you back.
- Money and Relationships: Start talking!
- Budgets: How to spend money and feel good about it.
- Wills: The one thing you must do – but half of New Zealand hasn’t.
- Retirement: Good news – you’re going to live longer.
- Dignity: Protecting your most valuable asset.
With sharing in mind, each video has been designed with mobile users in mind and run between 30-60 seconds. There are links to further information including a financial calendar to help Kiwis keep on top of their financial decisions through the year.
