I have been working with Savvy Money Mentor (Jean Flower) for the past couple months. As a result of the coaching and support, I have reviewed my personal and business finances, improved on cashflow management and now looking to review my business pricing structure.
Jean is a very professional coach with a great understanding of the challenges affecting most SMEs. DK Harrow
-- Ms K – Business Owner
My parents were always of the opinion that you should enjoy today and let tomorrow take care of itself – an attitude I’ve always adopted too. However, losing a well-paid job in my sixties meant a real struggle to make ends meet, as I had hardly any savings and a mortgage to pay. With Jean’s help I realised that I have been somewhat “head in the sand” about money, thinking things will turn out okay. I had always managed to juggle my credit cards and pay my bills but Jean’s coaching helped me realise that my lifestyle was not sustainable long-term. Also I was working very long hours and the stress on my body and mind was exhausting. Therefore, instead of just hoping I would find another similar role, she helped me put in place a plan to ensure I didn’t end up homeless and could instead create a better work-life balance. As a result, I have now moved to a more affordable area and bought a larger property. I am much happier, having paid off all my debts and finally becoming mortgage-free! I am now able to work part-time, have met some new friends and thoroughly enjoy the extra hours I now have to do the things I enjoy most without worrying about bills!
Many thanks for all your help Jean.
-- Ms. M – Semi- retirement
My married life of 17 years and plans for financial security as I headed towards retirement was suddenly plunged into complete free fall when my husband announced he no longer wanted to be married to me. The emotional shock plus the impact financially and the subsequent consequences of his choice was immense. I spent the first three months grieving for the loss of my husband and then with the help of Jean Flower forming a plan on how to build my future and financial security alone especially as I was so close to retirement. Her support and working through all the combinations of house sale, mortgage transfer and land registry transfer, bank accounts was mind boggling. By breaking everything down into a step by step process made the problems seem manageable and that there is happy outcome which is achievable allbeit after a challenging period.
So thank you Jean for all your professional help and the emotional support you have given me through thistrying time in my life.
