The money mistakes we make are real, but they are not unique – we all make them.Kim Potgieter, Certified Financial Planner
I meet many special women clients who feel stuck in jobs that don’t fulfil them; who feel trapped in uncomfortable separation agreements rather than divorce, who feel so burdened by all their family responsibilities that they have no time to think about what their lives in flow could look like. Women who hold no power over their money and women who feel undeserving, shame and not living their lives to the fullest.Kim Potgieter, Certified Financial Planner
