Finding your financial
g-spot can be a lot of fun
Money isn’t everything …
but it ranks right up there with oxygen
An entrepreneur, aspiring author, money enthusiast & eternal optimist. With a mission to help women step into their financial power and become money savvy in both life and in business. And make it fun, sexy and exciting along the way.
I’m passionate about money, investing and the economy. Other things I’m passionate about are travel, dipping my toes into the sea and enjoying a glass of wine!
My background is in accountancy, economics, and pricing, primarily in the corporate world. This includes an MSc in Economics and running my own economics consultancy for the last 10 years.
Born and raised in New Zealand, I arrived in the UK at age 23 with just £30 in my pocket. And never looked back!
I’ve always been curious about money. I learned very quickly that money doesn’t grow on trees. And wanted to understand why some people seem to have a lot whilst others have little or none.
I believe our money beliefs and money habits stem from our childhood. I have a frugal streak in me, which I learned from my frugal parents. But I’m also all about enjoying life NOW. This stems from the sudden death of my mother when I was 11 years old. I learned very quickly that life can be short.
I don’t live a frugal life – I spend money on things I want – that bring me joy (in a Marie Kondo kind of way). As well as saving/investing for the future. I’ve found the balance that works for me –it’s my financial g-spot.
I don’t put all my eggs in one basket. I’ve been investing in property for over 20 years now. But I also invest in stocks and shares, bonds, commodities (like gold and silver) and cryptocurrency. I even like to speculate a little but only with money I can afford to lose.
Money is a tool you can use to live a better quality of life. Manage it well and it can give you the life you want. And it can give you freedom. When not managed well, it can lead to debt and make you feel like shit.
There’s a lack of education around money mindset and money management. We’re not taught these skills in school. That’s why some lottery winners end up broke after a few years. They have a poor money mindset.
I strongly believe that we all have the ability to transform our money mindset, change our money story and become money savvy. This is liberating and can be life-changing. It’s not rocket science but it does take courage and commitment.
I’ll be covering ‘all things’ money and even branch out to woo woo topics like the use of Feng Shui to attract abundance into your life (and have a Certificate in Feng Shui to boot).
So strap yourself in and come along for the ride!
