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.


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.
