ABOUT THE ADVISER.
Co-Founder of XY Adviser | Author of Fund Your Ideal Lifestyle
Clayton is a personal expert specialising in cognitive minimalism – the belief that outsourcing the greatest stresses in life such as money to technology and automation, result in better performance across every other area of life.
With the passion to simplify money, and the ability to implement unique service offerings in his own business, Clayton created a unique financial planning service to take on the salary of clients, pay their bills, and ensure there was money to go travelling with each year – while simultaneously building an asset base for later in life. What he didn’t expect to find was the less interaction people had with their money, the better they were doing in every other part of their personal and professional lives.
Clients began getting promotions, doing better in their personal lives, winning industry-wide awards, going on more vacations, and still building a larger asset base. In many ways, over the course of twelve months, these clients began living a far more ideal version of their life.
With these results, Clayton directed his research to decision fatigue and the cumulative effect incessant choices can have. This light bulb moment was the catalyst for the FYIL book, as Clayton realised through taking away his client’s burden of having to think about money, he had stumbled upon not just a better way to manage a regular salary, but to manage modern day life.
