But really Jen, who are you?
Ok, thanks for the bio copywriter (very professional!), but I’ll take it from here.
Hi ladies! I’m Jen (no-one except my mother calls me Jennifer these days) and I am the founder of this exciting new initiative you’ve stumbled upon called Got Money Honey.
A big, warm welcome!
I am a successful business owner, a wife and a mum to three young-adult men and two crazy dogs – Frankie, the Border Collie and Reggie, the Chesapeake Bay Retriever (you may have to look that one up!).
I’d describe myself as a straight-talking, down-to-earth, dog-loving, finance-nerd.
And a cheerful, extroverted workaholic.
I only drink water with ice in it (weird, I know) and read hefty finance books for pleasure (again, weird).
In my spare time, I also enjoy sewing, cooking and sipping strong coffee while watching Saturday-morning sport – a compulsory past-time with three active sons.
But helping others is my absolute passion. And it will come as no surprise that women's financial literacy is at the top of my list.
Did you know that women retire with 42% less super than men?
Or that women are more likely to suffer from poverty, homelessness and financial stress than men in retirement?
How about that Australia's national gender pay gap (the difference in the average earnings of men and women) is still 14.2%? It's a real thing and something that affects women every day.
This persistent gender pay gap and poor retirement outcomes for women have motivated me more than anything else to be part of the solution.
As has my many years of experience working with women from all backgrounds and from all walks of life.
Throughout my career, I have seen first-hand the struggle that many women have when it comes to managing their finances.
But what most of these women share is a desire (however quiet) for change.
They WANT to be more confident with their money.
They WANT to feel empowered and independent.
They WANT to take control and feel secure.
They WANT to live their lives to the fullest.
I knew I needed to find a way for women to educate themselves that was at their own pace and at times that suited them.
A collection of online, self-paced money courses in plain English, with no-judgement and the support of myself and a gorgeous community of other like-minded women.
The courses are designed to be engaging, practical and easy-to-digest (some have even said fun!) – and I've added in some powerful tools and templates to make it even easier for women to get organised...and stay that way!
I am so incredibly passionate about and committed to this initiative (my fourth baby I like to call it!), because I see everyday the real difference it is making in women's lives.
But more than just helping women take control of their personal finances, I also wanted to support women in business. Having run a small business for nearly 20 years, I know what it takes to survive and thrive in the world of female entrepreneurship and nothing gives me more satisfaction than seeing other women succeed in their business endeavours.
It is the ongoing coaching of women that really shows them what potential they have – both with their business and in their personal lives.
And it is this that makes doing what I do so fulfilling; knowing that what I have taught someone has really had an impact on their life.
Nothing is more rewarding than seeing women achieve life's three freedoms: Financial Freedom, Time Freedom and Mind Freedom.
When women succeed, the world succeeds.
