Hi, I’m Vix.
An entrepreneur, author, money enthusiast & eternal optimist.
With a mission to help
women create and grow
wealth so that they can
retire rich in every way.
I’m passionate about money, investing and the economy. Other things I’m passionate about are travel, swimming in the sea and lifelong learning.
My background is in accountancy, economics and pricing, primarily in the corporate world. This includes an MSc in Economics and running my own business for over 10 years.
Born and raised in New Zealand, I arrived in the UK at age 23 with just £30 in my pocket. And not looked back. From that to now a multi-millionaire.
I’ve always been curious about money. And wanted to understand why some people seem to have a lot whilst others have little or none.
Our money beliefs and money habits stem from our childhood. I do have a frugal streak in me, which I learnt from my frugal parents. But I’m also all about enjoying life NOW. I’m sure this stems from the sudden death of my mother when I was 11 years old. As I learnt very quickly that life can be short.
I don’t live a frugal life. I spend money on things I want and things that bring me joy (in a Marie Kondo kind of way). As well as saving and investing for the future. I’ve found the balance that works for me – my financial g-spot.
I don’t put all my eggs in one basket. I’ve been investing in property for over 20 years now. But I also invest in equities, bonds, commodities (like gold and silver) and cryptocurrency. I’m actually a bit of a bitcoin geek.
To create and build wealth, you need a strong money mindset and good financial strategies. Where you have both, that’s where the magic happens.
There’s a lack of education around money mindset and personal finance. We’re not taught these skills in school. That’s why some lottery winners end up broke after a few years. They don’t know how to manage their money. And they have a poor money mindset.
I strongly believe that we all have the ability to transform our money mindset, rewrite our money story and become financially savvy.
This is liberating and can be life changing. It’s not rocket science but it does take courage and commitment.
I’ll be covering all things money and even branch out to woo woo topics like the use of Feng Shui to attract abundance into your life (and have a Certificate in Feng Shui to boot).
So, strap yourself in and come along for the ride!
