Episode 22 - preparing your COVID-19 financial forecast is a little like a swim training program & entirely necessary!
Hey there listeners,
Hope you're managing to navigate the mess that we're in right now with COVID-19. It's certainly a very bizarre, scary and somewhat overwhelming time.
Today's podcast will be a little different - essentially some unfiltered musings from Swim Smooth's Head Coach, Paul Newsome, recorded between a car park and bathroom (no less!) as he attempts to give some strategies that have helped him in the last fortnight with the closures of the local pool, dropping to a zero revenue state for the first time in his coaching career, but how he's trying to apply his coaching, planning and forecasting skills as a swim coach to navigate this financial side of this crisis. We are hoping you can do the same.
As Paul points out, he's far from being a financial advisor and anything stated here is designed purely for rumination and then action on how you can best use your own planning skills as an athlete to work through your own situation. If it prompts nothing more than for you to seek help and advice from a trusted accountant or financial advisor at this time, then please take action.
Given the nature of the "off the cuff" recording, there's a fair bit of repetition within this 57 minute recording, but hopefully the key messages come across well enough for you to take action as suggested and help to sooth at least a morsel of the anxiety you might be feeling right now if you've also lost your job.
