I realised a few years ago that as adults, we are expected to earn an income but we were never given the tools on how to manage our income.
Fortunately, I was priviledged to have a small amount of money education from my late father when I was about 8 years old. It was so basic but so powerful. It was about investing in buying shares and earning interest. I've always loved dabbling investment.
Luck struck again when I married a wonderful man who was very smart in earning a great income - and that's where it all started to go terribly wrong. Frivolity and wastefulness lead to arguments which led to violence which led to the demise of that relationship.
It is from this sad situation that Sawyerrs' House was born. No one teaches our kids how to be money-smart. I realised that this crucial piece of knowledge is missing and that the gap needs to be filled. In came my 2 wonderful daughters - aka, my guinea pigs.
Not only does Sawyerrs' House as a Brand come from my personal experiences, it also comes from my 19 years' work experience within local authorities. Working with low income families who would rather spend their limited resources on feeling good vs paying their rent or council tax spurred me on finally set up Sawyerrs' House as my full time business.
Having being in business for just over 1 year, I have been able to write and publish 3 books relating to money literacy. I have had the chance to speak publicly on 2 international stages about money literacy. I have been able to grow a following of fans and potential customers through social media - and it is continually growing.
My passion for money literacy and vision for Sawyerrs' House is take the message to Africa - one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
