Sure, you might not have reached all your financial goals in 8 weeks but imagine feeling calm, confident & in control of your finances. That's my promise to you when you join the My Financial Adulting Plan. Over 8 weeks you'll finally realise money isn't good or bad, you'll increase your financial literacy (which let's be honest would have been helpful back at school), you'll create your very own financial plan and you'll realise money is simply a tool that you can use to take you from where you are to a life you're excited about.
Is this you?
- You're worried you're not at the age and stage you should be
- You wish you had a better plan for your debt or your savings
- You want to invest but you're unsure how or where to start
- You're tired of the financial sabotage loop you're caught in
- You're ready to do something more about your financial situation
You're tired of feeling like this & you know it's time to financially sort yourself out.
Too many of us have put off dealing with our finances, we've abdicated responsibility or we've fumbled along and hoped it would be enough. The thing is, during times of uncertainty, of rising interest rates, rising inflation, of new financial products & daily will power challenges - it's more important than ever before not to simply cross your fingers and hope it will work out for the best.
The problem is, one-on-one financial advice is expensive. And sure, books and podcasts are great, but sometimes we need help that’s a little more personal & intensive.
That’s why I created the My Financial Adulting Plan.
Over 8 weeks, I'll help you become not simply financially OK, but financially confident, I'll increase your financial literacy & put you on the path to somewhere even better than you could have hoped. And even beyond the 8 weeks, you'll have access to me (ex-accountant, ex-financial advisor & self-made multi-millionaire) as your mentor & teacher.
I can’t wait to work with you. Mel x
Imagine how it would feel to...

My Financial Adulting Plan
An 8-week course where you’ll discover a new way to do money. From unlocking & unblocking money stories, to facing where you are now & daring to dream about where you want to be, through to creating your very own strategic financial plan and learning how to invest in shares, business & property.
I'll get you financially sorted.
THE RESULTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES
Don't just take my word for it. We have so many stories of financial transformations, financial a-ha moments or investing for the first time.
"I took an interest in personal finance about six or seven years ago and have been taking small steps to get better along the way, but My Financial Adulting Plan was what has really helped me to get clear on what I want in life, and how to bridge the gap between where I am and where I want to go. She keeps things fun and grounded, but also fact-based (though not in an overwhelming way). I also appreciate having a mix in our cohort of business owners, corporate rockstars, and women in all different places in their finance journey.
This program has helped me put in routine habits to make sure I always have my finger on the pulse with where my money is going, and helped me to realize a life of financial freedom isn't as far away or daunting as it initially seemed. "

MEET YOUR TOUR GUIDE
Hey there, I'm Mel.
Along with Lauren Law aka 'Lawsie', I'm here to teach, guide, inspire, help & occasionally even challenge you as you work your way through your Financial Adulting Plan.
Lawsie and I are a Gen Y and Gen X'er who have worked together for over a decade and helped thousands of women (and a few good men) just like you positively transform their finances. We're both ex-accountants and ex-financial advisors and importantly, we both invest ourselves. In fact, in my forties I have the option to work or not (having come back from less than nothing in my thirties after giving my entire divorce proceeds to charity.) While Lawsie, in her mid-thirties, can choose her hours and how she works because of how freaking financially savvy and disciplined she is .
We have all of the skills, experience and expertise to help you to create the life you're excited to design (that you don't want to escape from) and financial plan that future you will love you for (without you having to sacrifice your daily coffee).

"For years and years, I avoided addressing my finances, talking about money and participating in financial decisions with my partner. I just found money too hard, too confusing, too intimidating and it was easier to stick my head in the sand and pass the buck to my partner to deal with...
Enter Mel Browne and her Financial Adulting Course. Finally, someone I could trust because Mel's genuine passion to help people to help themselves was a game changer for me. From the beginning she was ethical, relatable, approachable, understandable and bloody funny. Everything I needed to plug into a topic I perceived as dry and intimidating.
Since completing the course I feel confident, competent and calm when making decisions on spending, saving and investing, I am never going to be the next numbers whizz and I'll remain the creative humanitarian I am, but I am extremely proud of the action we've taken the significant headway we've made. At the end of the day, I want to be able to support myself because that type of freedom and choice is empowering. I've surprised myself by how much I've enjoyed my financial education and guess what... I am actually clever with money... who know? All it took was the right education from the right person; Mel and her fantastic team.
Mel genuinely and authentically wants people to experience financial wellbeing because she truly understands how much we suffer when we are financially unwell. Mel puts the heart in finance and in turn, I wholeheartedly recommend her and her Financial Education Courses to anyone and everyone."
"Anyone who knows me, knows that I hate talking about money, asking for money, valuing my time for money, and I get stressed about it too.
BUT I've been doing My Financial Adulting Plan and today I chopped up my last overdue credit card. I actually can't believe it. After arguably the toughest 12 months trying to figure out how to make a living during a global pandemic and lockdowns, I've managed to sort some of my shit out, or in the words of Mel, 'unf*ck your finances' - she written a book with that title, It's one of the many reasons I rate her.
This is absolutely a plug for her Financial Adulting course because it's helped change our lives. I now understand more of my money story and why I make certain decisions - not always the best ones; we might look at making some investments, probably in shares, because it turns out you don't need a heap of cash to do so; and we've learned some valuable and simple tools to use to save and/or make money. And the key I think for me is that is has been done with a sense of humour and a warm heart. Money is awkward. But there's something about Mel that breaks down that barrier."
