My journey through life is your journey. Mine has been erratic, volatile, sometimes painful, sometimes immensely happy. I’ve gained professional qualifications aplenty; however, its the mistakes I have made that are my true value to you.

In her book I Thought It Was Just Me, Brené Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work who has spent the past thirteen years studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame, writes:

‘When we interview doctors, therapists and other credentialed professionals, we can’t assume objectivity. We don’t have the right to infringe on their private lives, but we do have the right to understand their professional values, ethics and their motivation for working with us. This is especially true for professionals who offer advice or guidance‘.

I entirely concur with those sentiments, which indeed inspired me to set up this site to provide a bit about my background, my journey, my mistakes and my successes, my perspectives on life and work so you can decide whether you want to keep in touch with me on your own life and financial journey, which may be very similar to mine.
