Kylie grew up in a family where money was openly discussed. She has a real passion and ability for finding ways to make and save money which has helped many people take back control of their finances. She is not a qualified financial advisor, instead she shares and teaches behaviours that are focused towards helping families save money now in all areas of the home, how to find ways to increase their cash flow and to create multiple streams of income. She does not give advice on specific financial products and investments to use. Instead, she will personally go over your budget with you, find where you can plug your financial leaks as well find options for you to generate income and increase your savings. Sessions with Kylie will leave you empowered with easy to understand and practical financial knowledge to apply in your everyday life.
Kylie is based in Canberra, Australia but frequents Sydney and is available for travel to other locations.
Kylie wrote 365 Ways To Make Money (Wright Books) which covers not only ideas on ways to make money but also how to get started, information on tax, advertising and promoting your business/idea for free and cheap as well as solutions to problems such as childcare. 26 ingredients is a cookbook using basic ingredients to create a variety of dishes from gourmet breakfasts to delicious desserts and even basics like cordial, bread and sweetened condensed milk.
