Hi, I’m Karen E.,


Certified Money Coach &
Financial Educator  

Money Coach

I help women feel good about their money - on the inside and outside.

I've been providing financial advice to clients for 20+ years, 14 of those as a Financial Adviser, specialising in supporting women grow and manage their wealth. Always curious about why we do what we do with money, I transitioned down the Behavioural Finance path and now provide Money Mindset & Behaviour coaching - which I believe is the foundation to being better at money: having a healthy relationship with it. I help women who feel confused, overwhelmed and stressed uncover the money blocks holding them back, personally and professionally. For the past 8 years I've been a Director of a NFP, contributing investing skills and expertise for the purpose of giving back to those financially disadvantaged. Qualifications - Bachelor of Accountancy, Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning & Certified Money Coach.

As a former shoe-addict (yes, she understands the temptation of wants vs saving/ investing), I'm committed to showing women what's possible with money from both a psychological and practical perspective.

Favourite drink: T2 New York Breakfast
Best life hack: 
(for saving money on beauty products): Put clumpy/dry mascara in hot water: submerge the mascara tube in a cup of boiling water and let it soak for a few minutes before use. You’ll get a few more weeks out of it. (mine always dries out before I finish the stick)
(for happiness): In every moment, ask yourself “what would love do right now?”. Often, the actions we take with money aren’t very loving to ourselves or future self.
Best piece of advice: At the age of 12 my dad told me to save 10% of every dollar you earn (he gave me the book Richest Man In Babylon – written 100 yrs ago, and the origin of this strategy). Wish I’d followed that advice then! It took me another 20+ yrs to implement.
