My Financial Adulting Plan: Michelle's StoryDec 01, 2022
On a Friday in early December 21, 15 extraordinary women showed up to tell their money stories about how their finances have been financially transformed as a result of completing the 8 week My Financial Adulting Plan.
Michelle is one of those incredible women.
I think when you see the word Adulting in a course title, you think it's only for people who need a lot of help with their finances. When you take a look at Michelle's story, you'll realise we truly do meet everyone where they're at. If you have debt, we'll help you create a plan for that. If you're feeling lost, we can help you gain clarity. And if you feel like you're doing OK, but think you could do better - we help you turbo charge your wins and give you confidence.
In Michelle's words, it was "life-changing".
Personally, I don't think we're telling our money stories, we're not celebrating our wins, talking about the things we're struggling with or sharing our hardships. Maybe it's because we're ashamed or fearful or that we think it's not polite.
Here, we want to change that.

I'm a company director. I sit on four boards, have a candle company, have a podcast. I write books. I do speaking. I've been a CEO of a billion-dollar company, so I'm like, I'm not sure I need to do a financial adulting course.
I have a really interesting story with money cause I worked out in a very young age that money would change my life. I came from a very working class family. My parents both had two jobs. It was four kids. They didn't have enough money to do stuff. And anything I ever wanted, whether it was a new pair of, you know, Levi Jeans, I knew that my parents couldn't afford it. So I started doing the paper round at 11 and then babysitting. And I knew that money was gonna change my life, but I don't define myself through money. It just gives me options.
I was very good at accounting or I guess maths back in the day. But I didn't learn about money at school. I don't think it was something that was really talked about or that people were comfortable with. You never talk about money. Talking about money is uncouth.
It's not uncouth and it's not degrading or a bad thing to talk about or embarrassing. It's actually, I don't think that you're too young, too old ever to learn about money. You can always learn elements from experts and Mel and Lawsie are experts at what they do. So, and they have a very unusual style is what I would say <laugh>. They are very cheeky and the banter between the two of them is just fabulous. But it's a wonderful environment to learn from and their personality and uniqueness and authenticity that they bring to this space is refreshing. You know, they're not like stiff old school accountants that are gonna say, you need to do it this way and you need to follow these kind of patterns. They give you a framework of which to work around, but also an ability to tweak it that is right for you. And every single person that did the course with me and there was a few hundred of us had very different circumstances. And no matter how smart or good you are or you think you are with money, you can always learn something. And I think I'm a testament to that.
So my advice to you is absolutely do the course. Like everyone can learn something from it. It was life changing.
Okay. I'll say that they make finance fun <laugh>
