Well, this JHB-based client, Cornelia, who we met today was certainly one of those special people. But, aside from a gregarious spirit and marvellous hospitality, she also told us her moving story of persistence and determination.
From the get go Cornelia and the FMI team 2000 got along like a house on fire. You see, she’s also in the financial planning industry, so we speak the same language. But, once we got past her professional side and came to appreciate her personal life, we tapped into the real magic of her story.
What we found was, that for nearly two decades, illness has made it difficult for Cornelia to work consistently. Naturally FMI has always been there to help ease the financial burden. But, what really made the difference were the things FMI did above and beyond helping money-wise. It was the emotional support and guidance offered by FMI that she says helped her bounce back, allowing her to be as much a breadwinner as her husband. Boasting a beautiful family and grandchildren who are the apple of her eye I’d say she’s done really well for herself and her family.
What I loved was that, although Cornelia was so thankful for FMI, it was actually her who should be thanked. Our team left that house totally inspired by what can be achieved when determination and a positive outlook are combined.
It’s so hard not to give away all the juicy details so I’ll hold my hooter and end it there. On to the next one!
Yours in life done better
