On A Recent Poll I Asked Women "What Financial Fear Is Keeping You Awake At Night?"

I was surprised to learn that over 70% of women who voted, ticked "yes" to their lack of financial confidence/self-belief and their lack of income to being the number 1 thing that was either stopping them from leaving their relationship OR that was holding them back from moving forward confidently.

Fear about by my ability to provide for myself successfully and a lack of confidence around managing my own finances has been the skill that I have had to master also single leaving my marriage.

It wasn't that I was bad with money. I just had never been in charge of my own money. I had never learnt the skill.


I had happily delegated that responsibility to my then husband. I believed him to be 'better' at money than myself.

He earnt more money than I did.

He understood investing better than I did.

He had a lot of confidence around money and his ability to earn and provide for us.

And I took a lot of security and safety from his ability to do that.

I know this story to be true for many women.

'If you didn't learn to be financially empowered and confident as a single woman in your 20's or 30's then it is something you're going to need to embody as a divorced one- whatever your age"
Carla Da Costa


Whether you have left a marriage or long-term relationship or are thinking about doing so, this two hour online webinar will both inspire and show you how you can be financially empowered as a single woman.

It is so often more about your mindset than the amount of dollars in your bank account. I have clients with very little to their name and I have clients worth millions. The fears for both women are still the same.


When: Wednesday, 17th August @11.30am EST, @9.30am WST.

Where: Online and live.

The recording will be delivered via email to your inbox if you are not able to join us live or for you to watch back.

Q & A

In this 30 minutes Deanne and Carla answers questions relevant to your particular financial situation.

What You Need To Know...

Deanne and I nearly called this webinar "how to not beholden yourself to a dick because you think you're bad with money" but we didn't. But we nearly did!!!

Jokes aside...What we do know collectively between both of us?

The behaviours and situations many women sadly tolerate and turn a blind eye to in the name of staying in a relationship because they fear being their own provider and financial manager without a partner helping them to make decisions and do it successfully.

The self-limiting beliefs, blocks and gaps in financial education that women face on their path to being financially strong and earning what they need to be earning. And the mindset necessary to be of this energy as woman.

In a big way we desire together to change the money story many women believe about themselves because we know it will open up possibilities for women and change lives.

Deanne has been instrumental in my own financial empowerment and learnings. Her advice even rated a mention in part three of my book "Seconds Please."

Early bird price available till 11th August for $99.
Price will increase to $137 thereafter.
