IT'S TIME TO DROP THE HUSTLE CULTURE, AND BUILD FINANCIAL SUCCESS ON YOUR TERMS

MONEY IS EASY, KNOWING WHAT YOU NEED IS THE HARD PART

Finance is realizing the life you want to live and then using your habits, time, and money to carve the path to your dreams.

WHAT IF YOU COULD ACHIEVE

• Financial Calm

Confidence in your choice of goals and habits

 

Your vision of where you see yourself compared to where you are now

 

Wealth by properly investing your hard earned savings

 

Clarity on investments, careers, spending and finding financial freedom without reading stuffy articles or static books

 

Boss status over the investment of your time and money

 

Assurance that you are moving towards better

YOU LOVE THE FEELING OF FORTITUDE THAT PRACTICE BRINGS. 

 

You know that in order to be financially successful and build wealth, you need knowledge dispelled in an interesting way, human support, your own commitment and easy practices that bring confidence to make courageous choices for your life.

Ideally, someone would give one answer to your one burning question. They would give you the one single piece of advise and you would spend 15 minutes executing that plan and wa la! Money would be flowing into your accounts - you would need a bigger purse to carry all the spare cash.

…but that is not the way it works.

 

Luck comes sometimes but you would have needed to be in its way in the first place. ​

 

Like your schooling, your company, your household - all the successes took attention and care and a wee bit of time and effort and commitment - to be well, successful. ​

 

So you search the internet, view some YouTube videos, check Tik Tok, read a few books but change does not come.

I tried earning my way to financial freedom - it worked for awhile - until my adrenal glands had enough, I was missing too much of what made me, well me, and when I jumped off the work treadmill, my old habits gnawed away at my savings.

I realized for all my investment success, all my career success, I had not built foundational habits for my finances.

I also realized I was asked ALOT of questions - in airports and parties - anywhere I was a captive audience.

 

I realized we all needed answers.

So I stepped back and added a small amount of discipline and tried and true simple doable habits to what I already knew about money and investment.

I share all those insights - but so you can practise as soon as you learn, I embedded them all in a custom built online fun platform. Taking on a tech project was an incredibly difficult journey but existing sites did not provide the experience or results I wanted to achieve for myself or you.

Begin to establish better habits

QUEST 2

Set up the mindset and assets needed for wealth building

 

Do you feel like you dont want to repeat the same mistakes as your parents. Are you unsure of the decisions you made or need to make on what investments to hold?

What will this do for you?

Acknowledging our past experiences allows us to carve our mindset forward. The importance of this cannot be overstated.

Its not all about mindset of course. How you invest your hard earned savings will determine if your Dreams will be achievable. We review Assets including currency, class and liquidity risk and how to begin matching them up with your Dreams.

We address savings as a habit to form.

QUEST 3

Reimagine your day!

 

Are you running your day or is it running you? Do you feel you are doing too much are too little? Can you see how you spend your time is how you spend your money?

What will this do for you?

Draw a link between how the decisions you make and don't make about how you spend your time have direct impacts on your happiness and spending patterns.

Understand the importance of nurturing all aspects of yourself, not only for you, but for your family and how this is a game changer.

Setting up accounts to stressly ensure you, and anyone else in the household, is getting what they need to thrive.

QUEST 4

Make courageous financial decisions

 

Do you think budgets are cumbersome and a waste of time - only for those people who dont have a life? Would you rather be dipped in tobasco sauce than talk to anyone else amount your finances or debt?

What will this do for you?

We will show you that freedom needs boundaries and your schedule and budget are tethers to your wildest and quietest dreams.

Community convo is one of the most difficult parts for most. We aren't taking about a book club here - just some casual convos to release the pressure valve.

Debt - yes, you will really sleigh the dragon.

QUEST 5

See your finances from the top of the mountain!

 

Have you wished for one picture to show you an overview of your wants and haves? Would you like one place to pop into for inspiration?

What will this do for you?

Its like the day after the party but instead of having a big mess to clean up you have a smartly designed Timeline showing you your dreams and assets.

I pop in here a few times a week to reinforce my frugality as a way of life. Its not meant to limit me but to free me.

Timeline focuses your intentions and helps you say no and yes to keep you on your own path

We further introduce the concept of money dates as a way to incorporate all the habits and knowledge into easily digestible bites for your daily life.
