Making a Difference


 
 
 

I created Paper Money Co for one main reason.

I wanted a way to make a difference in the world and address the gender inequality all women face when it comes to economic empowerment.

At it's core, Paper Money Co is about empowering women to take control of their finances because that allows us to shape our futures. It allows us to change our lives, change the lives of those we love and change the world. 

I truly do believe that a financially empowered woman is an unstoppable force.

But the truth is that women face inequality all over the world and in so many different ways. Economic empowerment is just one piece of the puzzle. 

And I know that the only reason I haven't had to deal with horrors like child marriage or sex trafficking is because I was born in a different part of the world. I got the opportunity to go to school and get a job. And that's something a lot of girls and women just don't have.

That's why Paper Money Co supports a range of charitable organisations and foundations that aim to create gender equality. I support these causes in my own time and with money out of my pocket. There are many ways you can get involved too. 

Looking for something specific?

A word of caution before you make any financial donations - please make sure to check that you're donating to a charity that is registered with the ACNC. All the organisations I've listed below are registered charities - I support them myself, so I did the research.

My mission


When a woman is in control of her money, she's in control of her life. She has the power to change her  life and live on her terms. She has the power to change the lives of those she loves and those around her. And, she has the power to make a difference and change the world. That's why I'm a firm believer that financial empowerment and education should be available to all women. Let's close the gender wealth gap, one woman at a time. So that you can live the life you were meant to live.

professional tools

I'm not just someone who plays with spreadsheets. I'm a Chartered Accountant and an Analyst with years of education and experience in finance. I believe in being the best at what I do, so that I can make the best  products for my customers.

eco-friendly

You can go 100% digital with my products and save some trees. Or, if you prefer to print on demand, you won't be paying for packaging or shipping which reduces your carbon footprint.

quality tested

All the financial tools I've designed have come from personal necessity. That means I've road-tested each of them in my own life, so I know how life changing they are.

great value for money

I'm a firm believer that women everywhere deserve to be financially empowered. You don't have to be wealthy to have access to financial education and the right tools.
