Who am I?
As a single mother of 2 daughters, I have amply gained my experience with a small budget and increasing it. I also crawled through the rooms on my knees, looking for change to get my groceries in my most difficult financial times.
After working for years in the catering industry, I became a Financial Advisor at Aegon in 1999. In the years that followed, I did Investment A, Life and Budget Coach courses and I lived in Greece for a while.
After I fell into a black hole after the death of my youngest daughter Shardé in 2014, my eldest daughter Faith, now a young mother herself, came up with the idea to set up a blog with my education, experiences and advice I gave her. She indicated that she learned a great deal about it and that she knew for sure that many more women would want that also.
This is how the first frugal blog was set up in 2016, but I actually thought it to be Calvinistic: As if you should never be able to do more than to be frugal.
After my partner called me a Diva, the new name and design of this blog were born.
In the first instance, of course, for everyone who is interested in Budget Diva Magazine.
However, due to experience and the challenges that my age entails, I now mainly help women aged 40+ to regain control of their own finances. With or without a partner, with or without children. For herself, her present and her future.
How do I do that?
By honestly sharing my experiences, searching for relevant information and updates from various financial/professional related sources. Through collaborations with colleagues and questions, interviews or experiences of my readers.
Through interesting articles, courses and online coaching, I bring everything I know and think you should know about your Personal Finances and living well together on Budget Diva Magazine.
Come along more often to stay up-to-date.
Have a great day!
