Super Confidence provides educational, compliance advice and audit services to the self-managed super fund industry. Audrey is a CPA with over 25 years experience with the last few years in the self-managed super fund industry and in particular auditing funds. What she found was a very complex and complicated area and could see first hand the issues that represent hurdles to people having the confidence to proactively manage their own super fund. There is so much technical jargon and the government keeps changing the rules being a couple of those hurdles.

Craig Richards

CraIGI was born in Japan and lived there till I was 7 years old. My father is Australian an my mother is Japanese, but since my early days were spent in Japan, I came to know and understand the traditions of the Japanese culture – honesty, integrity, persistence, commitment, dedication. Like the kamikaze’s who devoted their life to one cause until the last dying breath, I too feel much the same way with regards to the cause I have selected to pursue. To me, this is nothing special, as there are many other Japanese who feel the same way, although I have been told on more than one occasion that this is not normal... regardless of whether this commitment level to life is normal or eccentric, I believe it is important to understand other people’s traits, as the journey to succeed in life is founded on these traits. I have been blessed to be able to do the work I do and the chance to get to know so many people on so many levels, so naturally I want to share something about me in retu...
