How does money make you feel? Stressed, ashamed, anxious, fearful, peaceful, ambivalent, worried, uncertain?
The truth is, dealing with our finances should be simple. The trouble is there's so much information, it's like being handed a menu item with 10,000 items and being told to hurry up and choose. But most of us don't understand the menu, we're overwhelmed by choice or we're scared we're not going to be able to afford anything. We're too ashamed or embarrassed to ask questions because we don't want to look stupid and we feel uncomfortable talking about it.
That's where I step in. My job is to help you reduce your financial overwhelm , develop financial confidence & financial literacy. And help you design a life you're excited about. Keep reading to find out more.
Hi, I’m Mel
I'm an ex-accountant, ex-financial advisor & ex-working till I drop.
Today, I own multi-million-dollar businesses and am financially independent, but it wasn’t always that way: I certainly didn’t always used to be good at money, or business and have had to claw my way back from less than zero. I’ve learned the hard way that until I understood my own money story and money identity, I would continue to financially stumble and self-sabotage.
The problem is, for so long I stumbled on my own. There really wasn’t anyone to talk to about it.
That’s because, for women particularly, there is an almighty ick factor when it comes to money and finances. Nice girls don’t talk about it and they certainly don’t say they want more of it. The problem is, if we want to become financially empowered, to have choice, to make societal change, to raise funds for great causes, to reduce the wage gap and look after ourselves in our old age – we kind of need to start financially adulting.
