A little about you, Kevin

I’ve been living here for the past six years and call it my home now (hopefully mum won’t read this). It’s a vibrant city, super well-connected and rich in diversity; and in the end, my family is only a short flight or train journey away — who said you can’t have it all?

I’m a software engineer by trade, currently working at an international startup, bringing restaurant-quality food into people’s homes. I like a good challenge, but also cycling, running or swimming, reading books, exploring the great outdoors and cooking for friends, among tons of other things.

What do you primarily use PocketSmith for?

How has PocketSmith changed the way you do money?

Ideally, you don’t want to be in that situation; I certainly didn’t want to! PocketSmith helped me identify this problem and manage my money better, allowing me to have full visibility across my different accounts in one place. I gradually managed to bridge that gap over time and now have healthy finances without having to be so strict with myself. Just a tiny amount of monitoring and mindfulness: a piece of cake!

What pages/features do you use most?

Sometimes I look at the bigger picture on the net worth page to review how my assets or liabilities are shared across my accounts.

But what about you?! What are your PocketSmith habits? Feel free to comment below — I’m curious to know how other people use it!

How often do you log in?

Any tips?

What is the best money decision you made for 2017?

Being able to better manage my money helped me spend less and save some as well. To celebrate what I have achieved, I treated myself to a holiday in the picturesque Patagonia earlier this year.

Beautiful Patagonia

It was probably my best holiday to date and I had such a great time that I recently booked another one to go explore California next summer. I can’t wait!
