Common Super Mistakes


More than 80% of people in your age group make up to 4 critical mistakes in the first 20 years of their career, consequently reducing their projected annual income in retirement by more than 20% (in today’s dollars). 

Now you are informed, you can take action to stop making these mistakes.


What is the difference between a sales and service model? Sales models focus on the margin earned by selling a product or service, and service models focus on the cost of said product or service compared to the value delivered.   

Based upon the frequency and volume of reregulation over the past 30 years, it would appear there are some conflicts within the super industry between making a profit and delivering optimised value.
