Courageous Currency Conversations

Reflecting of my journey with money, I recognise that it’s not how I want my children’s story to go. And it’s not just my story – it’s the stories of hundreds of clients I spend time with in Life Planning meetings. Yes, the plot and storyline may be different, but the results are the same…

The BRAVE new You

I have personally walked a long and arduous journey with money. I have spent more than half of my life devoted to transforming my money story. And it was not easy. I often wonder if I knew more about the psychology of money twenty years ago, if my life would have been any easier. In…

LIVE your NEW money story?

Living your new money story is the challenging part. Knowing the information is not enough to drive a behavioural change.

Celebrating Living and Learning

Can you believe that the Month of May is already upon us? April marked my 50th birthday and I certainly took the time to celebrate the Chapter preceding my 50th year.
