Wondering what it’s like to work with Money School, attend one of our seminars, or take one of our courses online? Here’s what our gorgeous clients and students have to say:
From our organisational clients
Thank you to Lacey and Fran at Money School for delivering the Department’s series of Women and Superannuation workshops. The presentations were great – packed full of information delivered in a way that was easy to understand. The women who attended the workshops loved the engaging and motivating style of the presentations and the personal stories. The practical examples highlighted how important it is to take control of your super and the activities made it clear how easy it can be to make a difference. Lacey and Fran made it very easy for me to run this series of workshops to help women make the most of their super.
Lacey’s presentation at Mi Casa Property Boutique got rave reviews from the parents who attended, including myself. Her story is engaging and the activities she suggests for families to teach money skills are not only practical, they’re fun!
Soon after Lacey’s presentation I had the opportunity to apply what I’d learned when my kids wanted to do a bake stall. As Lacey suggested, my husband and I loaned them the money for the ingredients and coached them through the process. It’s helped us talk to our kids about money in a practical way and they’ve already learned some valuable lessons.
We love Lacey’s work through Money School and since her presentation Mi Casa has been happy to support her book launch and kidpreneur showcase. It’s wonderful to see Lacey’s lessons impacting the next generation.
Lacey’s presentation to our Year 12 students was practical, personal and beneficial. Her examples resonated with the 12s immediately and, from the steady flow of questions at the end, it was clear they were engaged by the topic.
I loved the advice Lacey shared – save ambitiously and use those savings to buy assets. I wish I had received advice like that when I was in Year 12!
It’s rare that someone can teach a group of accounting and finance professionals something new about money, but Lacey managed it! The Money School perspective is refreshing – linking financial decisions back to our beliefs and values makes so much sense and provides clear guidance to help our children make their own smart and value based money decisions. The presentation was engaging and the enthusiasm with which it was delivered was contagious. Lacey offered practical advice and activities that I was able to share with my girls immediately. 10 out of 10!
From our adult students
Enrolled intending to learn how to teach my son about money and walked away with so much more. It is obvious that Lacey & Fran know their stuff. Would definitely encourage people (parents and the ‘even smarter non-parents’) to enrol and take advantage of their ‘wealth’ of knowledge (couldn’t help myself).
I’ve always been afraid of money thinking I just had to make more to get out of debt, little did I know that the gold is in the management of money and not just the making of it. The handouts attached to the course mean all the work is done for you and all you have to do is get disciplined and get it done. HIGHLY recommend Money School.
I love Money School. Like many people, as a child I didn’t learn anything about how to save or invest money either at home or at school. I’ve always been sceptical of all the expensive courses that are out there. But this one is different. I really trust Lacey and Fran and they practice what they preach. So glad I have signed up to this life changing course.
As an accountant, I am generally on top of the numbers – but having immigrated and having our wealth divided by 11 (exchange rate woes!), my hubby and I decided to do the course to focus on getting our financial goals back on track. The course achieved that and more.
I love the fact that it is not a “get rich quick” scheme – but provides practical advice and solid solutions. For us, the overall message resonates – choice. Choose what to do with each dollar. I loved the deep dive on shares, especially the call options. Amped and excited to get trading!
On Maker Kids Club (our course for kids)
The Mosey on Magic dynamic duo of older brother Riley (10) and little sister Georgia (9) absolutely love being kidpreneurs.
My wife and I have seen a huge boost in our kids confidence, particularly our daughter Georgia who has gone from a very shy and introverted little girl to a confident young lady who is becoming very adept at dealing with her customers. We have no doubt this is due to the Maker Kids Club and the amazing opportunities they have given our children. It’s been incredible to watch these little people of ours grow and blossom under Lacey and Fran’s incredible assistance.
Mel and I are bursting with pride – we simply had no idea Riley and Georgia would create such a wonderful business. It has helped them become closer as brother and sister and also brought the entire family together as we all pitch in to help out.
I am the P&C President of my children’s school and also on the Executive of the West Australian Council for State Schools Organisation (WACSSO) and I have long been advocating for children to learn real world life skills, particularly around financial literacy. I love that I can help my child develop skills that will genuinely be useful to them in the real world and would love to see more kids get that opportunity.
We love being members of Maker Kids Club. The work Lacey and Fran have put in to the education and development of the kids is truly inspirational and the amount of work that must go into coordinating the markets is amazing.
We simply could not recommend highly enough the Maker Kids Club, we honestly believe this is life changing work they are doing in setting children up on a path to financial freedom.
My 11 year old daughter Ashleya is a member of Maker Kids Club and sells her own homemade natural lip balm. Ashleya attended one of the markets organised by Lacey from Maker Kids Club and it was an amazing experience. It was a safe, friendly and welcoming environment for the kids to sell their wares. Ashleya made a couple of hundred dollars from it!
She also learned about presentation, using testers so potential customers could try the lip balm before they bought it, and learned about money. She donated 20% of her earnings to a charity and banked the rest of it.
This has opened up an incredible opportunity for my child that wouldn’t be possible without the support of Maker Kids Club. Ashleya will continue to donate 20% of her earnings until she reaches her goal of raising $1300 for Big Brother Mouse who publish books for Laotian kids so they can learn to read.
The online support from Maker Kids Club has been fantastic and I hope we can attend more kidpreneur friendly markets in future!
The students thoroughly enjoyed the program and were working in groups to work towards a common goal. It was a great program which gave the students a taste of what it is like to run a business. The concepts were directly linked to the Australian Curriculum and the program was an excellent link between study and practice.
The launch market was absolutely brilliant, the students were super excited about selling their goods /product. I highly recommend this program and I think that it should be compulsory for all Year 6 students.
…and more love!
I received so much more from Lacey in Money School than I expected. I could trace my own money history patterns and she shined the light to step out of them. Whilst her story is like so many everyday people, it is the EXTRAORDINARY things she does with it. Brilliant knowledge, humility and passion, what more could a student want from a master teacher!
This course is an investment in your future and your children’s future. It’s worth its weight in gold, and so is Lacey! Best spent time and money.
I enrolled in the Money School day seminar Assets, Good Dept and Mindset as a young person becoming more financially responsible. I would highly recommend it to anyone starting out and wanting to make informed and proactive decisions about their financial future. Lacey made the content interesting and easy to follow and was happy to answer any questions along the way. She was also very passionate which was infectious as now I look forward to planning my financial future, rather than feeling overwhelmed by it.
No nonsense approach to the realities behind creating wealth. Very engaging and thought provoking!
A great overview of everything I wanted to know – and a lot I didn’t know I wanted to know. Very insightful, concise and empathetic perspective on money – tools to do what I want in life.
Very easy to understand and practical information provided in an engaging and inspiring way! I’m not very money-conscious; it goes in my account and I don’t really pay too much attention because I do save money, but this course inspired me to be more mindful about what I’m spending my money on and the importance of conscious saving.
I am 47, where were you Lacey when I was 17? Insightful, useful and easy to comprehend. Thank you.
Lacey delivers sometimes difficult to grasp concepts in a clear, concise, no-nonsense manner, together with a sense of humour which makes it easy to understand. She makes great sense of the financial maze that is our complicated world.
