MyMoney Online, The Personal Finance series with Warren Ingram

Want to retire rich? Mind your mind (not only your money)

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Financial Life Planning Institute Certified Financial Planner Kim Potgieter for his weekly personal finance feature.

Potgieter specialises in retirement.

She is fascinated by the link between psychology and money.

Most people who come to plan their retirements with us believe that money, and how it is invested, is the only important segment to consider. Our research and experience has taught us that in order to retire successfully, a holistic retirement plan is essential. This is made up of more than money.
