Author Profile: Audrey Dawson
Audrey Dawson is passionate about empowering people to have confidence to take responsibility and have control in their lives. Audrey is a CPA with over 25 years’ in the audit industry including most recently in the sphere of self- managed super funds and is not your average auditor. She runs an accounting practice, Super confidence, which specialises in providing compliance, educational and audit services to those with a self-managed super Fund or those thinking about investing in one. Audrey does not see audit as a tick and flick process so that trustees of self-managed super funds can tick the box to say they have met a legislative requirement. Audrey wants to educate trustees as to the importance of proactively managing their own superfund so that they will be able to enjoy retirement to the fullest.
Working with accountants and trustees of SMSF’s Audrey can empathise with people with SMSF’s as to the frustration with the complexities of having a super fund – the jargon, the red tape and of course the ever changing rules. How do I keep up? How can I understand? Where do I get the time? She wants to answer all those questions.
Audrey has built up a wealth of practical knowledge. She has seen firsthand these issues and the barriers they create for anyone even attempting to manage their own super fund. She is also aware of the risks of people not being proactively involved in their own SMSF, including the heavy fees and fines and in some cases, people completely losing their super funds. Audrey is passionate about empowering people to want to manage their super fund through building their knowledge base and their confidence base to do just that.
So, being a frustrated teacher she wrote Holy Crap! Where’s My Super Gone? Self-Managed Super Made Simple. It provides the reader with the basics that enable them to ask the right questions and learn more about their super fund or what it means to manage a super fund so that they will never have to utter those words.
Book Synopsis: Holy Crap! Where’s My Super Gone? Self-Managed Super Made Simple.
Are you considering the minefield of opening your own self-managed super fund? Do you have an existing self-managed super fund and want an element of control over your investments? Do you like knowing what’s happening with your money? Then this book is for you – a comprehensive, plain English guide to putting you in charge of your money.
With the ever growing number of SMSF’s, where there a now over 500,000 SMSFs in Australia, there has never been a better time for a book like Holy Crap! Where’s My Super Gone?! Self-Managed Super Made Simple. This is a book intended to provide a practical, no nonsense guide and which provides information that makes sense and is easy to understand. It’s what people should know about SMSFs to help them actually proactively manage their own fund.
The value of this book in empowering people to proactively manage their own super fund is very clear. However there is so much technical jargon and ever changing rules and government red tape associated with superannuation as well as the lack of knowledge as to the risks associated with having an SMSF. To date there has been no guide that explains the basics in simple terms and answers the questions commonly asked by people who have SMSFs. The current books in the market tend to be in the nature of a text book and contain an overwhelming amount of information that is not conducive to demystifying the world of SMSFs at the correct level.
I am an auditor with over 25 years’ experience and I know when I first started doing audits of SMSFs I found the rules, regulations, concepts and the language totally confusing so I understand the pain of not knowing where to start or what to ask. I have seen firsthand the issues that represent hurdles for people having the confidence to proactively manage their fund. As a result, people rely solely on their financial advisors such as financial planners and accountants instead of working with them and as the name suggests self manage their own super fund so that they can enjoy retirement to the fullest.
Holy Crap! Where’s My Super Gone?! Self-Managed Super Made Simple. is the empowering answer for those people who want to proactively manage their own superfund and not to one day have to utter those words. Holy Crap! Where’s My Super Gone?! Self-Managed Super Made Simple is not like other current books in the market on this subject as it does not try to be a text book of everything you need to know about SMSFs but were too afraid to ask . This is a simple to understand guide that explains the important things you need to know about managing a super fund so you can actively manage your own SMSF. So if taking control and enjoying your retirement to the fullest is what you want then this book could be one of the best investments that you ever make!
