I work with clients who expect to receive £250k and above as a pension share or investment share in addition to a split of their home on divorce.
If this is you, then you probably need a financial expert in your corner, but the thought of sitting in front of a sleek city adviser when you are feeling so emotionally raw and financially unprepared is intimidating.
That's why I use social media. I'm passionate about breaking down the corporate and cold image of financial services, and sharing the real people behind the advice.
On my Instagram and You Tube channel you will find inspirational posts, useful and informative guidance and posts about my real, down to earth life, my thoughts on feminism, parenting and my crazy horse of a dog Waffle.
I know that you might not have been the financial manager in your relationship, that there could be some shame and apprehension around sharing what you do know about your money. I get that you may think that finances are scary, and not your thing.
I want you to know that you are not the only one in this position, and that it's quite normal to not know your finances. I can help you really understand them going forward, so you can make savvy, informed financial decisions.
I want you to know that you don't have a huge mountain to climb, as much as financial services would have you believe this stuff is difficult, I promise you it really isn't.
I want you to know that you've got this.
You just need to take the first step.
If this resonates with you, please reach out and set up a meeting. I would love to hear from you and help you on your journey.
(p.s. I am Chartered and Fellow, the highest qualification within my profession, so you are in such very safe hands!)
