Success isn’t about how much money you make; it’s about the difference you make in people’s lives.” ― Michelle Obama 🌟


Wow Cheltenham, you were amazing! Last Saturday I was invited to talk at the annual prestigious literature festival with journalist and author Alex Holder and Sarah Raphael. We talked about money - obviously - and our books and it was amazing to see such a large and diverse crowd. Thank you all for coming.

I have also done 2 corporate talks at a fintech a law firm and really enjoying meeting you there.

What’s your relationship like with money and personal finance? 
Being an entrepreneur means that my savings go into my business, so every penny needs to be carefully invested and monitored. I now have to be a lot more money minded than I was before. On the personal side this also means I cannot afford as much as before, but I am working towards it!
