The past five years have been a ‘golden time’ for entrepreneurs, Perry Littleboy says. ‘Today there’s an awful lot of capital around, and a lot of encouragement from government, a lot of favourable tax incentives for entrepreneurs.’
However, he does see business owners ‘receiving an indigestible chunk of wealth’ and succumbing to rash decisions influenced by friends, family and even strangers. ‘They’ll start tugging at their sleeve, saying, “Invest in my commercial property enterprise, invest in my business; I’ll look after your money.”’
The affable Littleboy aims to help clients ‘craft a vision as to what their wealth is for, and most importantly what it’s not there for’.
