Budgets, Money & You
Supporting your relationship with money
If you need support & structure with creating a budget or saving money then read on…
I realised through the support of my friends that what we may find so natural and easy for ourselves, others may find challenging, and so I have been inspired to support others with their budget & savings journey. From a very young age I have always been naturally good at budgeting and saving money. At age 14 whilst still at school my dad got me a part-time job at the local chicken shop and this was the beginning of me starting to save money. As a teenager I had no particular goal of what I was going to do with my money, but I had a natural steady consistency and discipline, and by the age of 19 when I left home to move to the big city of Melbourne I had saved a whopping $10,000. That was 32 years ago, and even though at the time I didn’t think it was such a big deal, I can really appreciate today the enormity of that for a young teenager.
Whilst I may have a business and counselling qualification, it is life that has taught
me the most valuable lessons about purposefully budgeting and saving money.
And now I want to share my wisdom and lived experience with others.
In 2018 I bought a house in Melbourne and some friends asked me how long it took me to save for the house deposit. I hadn’t thought much about this as saving money was a solid ritual I just did naturally in the background. When I went home to actually work out how long, I was surprised at the short space of time, as I had saved $150,000 in only 7 years and on an average income! That’s about $400/wk savings whilst also paying over $400/wk on a house rental during that period! Not bad for a woman who doesn’t hold back spending money travelling and pampering herself.
With consistency and purpose, budgeting & saving money can be easy

It may surprise some of you, but earning more money does not necessarily mean more savings.

The course gave me the ability to unpick my poor relationship with money and to have a good look at other areas of my life that have been affected and where I have been putting my head in the sand.
I have to say this course was life changing for me. I now feel much more empowered, thank you Marika.
Saving Money 101 Course
This course has changed my life in ways that I could not have imagined. I know everything is energy, everything is because of energy but this has really bought it home to me. How everything affects everything.
For so long I have felt that money has had me running around in circles. I’ve been trying to catch it, trying to get organized and take responsibility for my spending. After doing this course I now feel that I am running the money. I’m calling the shoots. Money is no longer running my life around in circles.
This course offers so much more then you could imagine. If you are prepared to do the work, which I might add was not easy. I had to come face to face with all the past years of my mis-spending, but every ounce of uncomfortableness was beyond worth it
Saving Money 101 Course
This process has been life-changing. I had no idea that within 6 weeks I could have a grip on my finances and have an end date to my credit card debt. Thank you Marika for your support throughout this process.
It has been invaluable.

Marika makes money and all its apparent complexities seem very simple. She brings great clarity with a gentle understanding to all areas of this subject, and supports you to get to know why and where we can get so easily caught out and overwhelmed when it comes to our finances.
A wonderful opportunity for anyone who feels even just a little bit daunted by money, and everything associated with it.
