What do we do?
We help adults get on top of their finances and become time rich. They build and implement their own financial plans without feeling overwhelmed by jargon or like they need a degree to understand money.
We help parents raise financially savvy children. They teach their children about money without needing any prior knowledge – and without boring the kids!
We help organisations bring financial education to their students, clients, customers, members and constituents. We work with government agencies, universities, schools, corporations and not-for-profits to help the people they represent learn about money.
We want every adult and child in the world to feel empowered because they have the knowledge and skills to become financially independent.
The world suffers from a financial education gap.
We are taught English, science and mathematics at school, but not how to manage and invest our money. We rely on parents to teach us, but many don’t know what to do themselves. After all, children don’t come with a manual. If your parents didn’t know much about becoming financially independent, chances are they didn’t teach you – because they didn’t know how, through no fault of their own.
We need more financially independent people.
When individuals no longer have to work ‘just for the money’, you become time rich, creating space to follow obsessions. Now, more than any other time in history, the world needs your personal genius and your burning desire to make a change. It needs you free to follow your heart and head to harness these forces for good to bring about radical change in the world. The world does not need you in wage slavery, chained to a job you don’t love simply because you need the money to survive.
It’s what you do with it that counts.
Anyone with an income can become financially independent. Fran and Lacey, the mother-and-daughter founders of Money School, are living examples of this fact. Astute decisions are all that stands between you and financial independence.
There are only two rules: save, and buy assets.
The paths to get to financial independence are many and varied. You can pick a strategy that allows you to sleep well at night while building your wealth. All you need is the knowledge of what options are available, and a framework for making the best decision available for you at the time.
Our purpose: Education.
We want you to become financially independent. We want to teach you the skills you need and a framework for making good financial decisions. We want you to pass these skills on to young people: your children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, neighbours and friends. We want to see the financial education gap closed so fewer people will be the victims of bad financial advice and decision-making.
