Future Authoring Letter

Letter Date: 7th March 2024

Hey Kate,

Let me just start by saying thankyou for what you’ve done, because of you I’m now able too…
Enjoy our life with family both nuclear and our broader families. We can travel overseas once a year without having to think about the financial impacts of these holidays. We have the option to send the girls to Ivanhoe Girls should it be the best option for them. We have renovated our home to be more user friendly and lux for the 4 of us. We have learnt to enjoy the money we have while still being smart with it. Work is more for enjoyment than it is a grind or necessity.
The wisdom and discipline you showed has helped me to achieve…
Yearly overseas holidays and regular trips in the van exploring our own backyard.
Home renovations to provide us with more space, a better flowing family home and a place our kids will make core memories.
Life is enjoyable and flows without financial resistance.
We have both managed to retire early at 55.
Because of what you learned and how I gained, I’ve been able to increase my impact. Here’s just some of what you’ve made possible:
Yearly overseas holidays and regular trips in the van exploring our own backyard.
Home renovations to provide us with more space, a better flowing family home and a place our kids will make core memories.
Life is enjoyable and flows without financial resistance.
We have both managed to retire early at 55.

In case you were wondering if it’s all worth it, let me assure you that… 

It’s all you have ever dreamed and more. Fulfilling, easy and full of adventure and laughter.
You will get to see the girls eyes light up like its their first Christmas time and time again because of what you did and built.
I know you worked hard and made sacrifices to make the lifestyle I now live possible, so let me walk you through a typical day so that you know what’s head of you…
Most days we have the flexibility to have a slow morning, walk to the girls to school and grab a coffee on the way back before we get started on some work. Work is more of a joy than a chore. We both have time in the week to do things for ourselves – whether that be exercise, a massage or something else that shows our bodies and brain gratitude. One or both of us meet the girls at the school gate, we wander home and spend the afternoon playing in the backyard or going for a bike ride to explore and smell the roses. Home for dinner around the table, lots of conversation and learnings from our day, no chat is off the table. Our girls can confide in us and we openly share our experiences and advice when it is welcome. The girls cruise to bed to read and we spend some 1 on 1 time on the couch having a wine and a laugh before heading to bed ourselves and being grateful for another amazing day!
Lastly, I need you to know that…
I know as much as you resisted this change and were worried it was going to limit your life and lifestyle – you were so wrong! You have helped set us and our family up for success beyond your original expectations. You did good guys!
