Q: Why did you start MyMoneyZen?
Many people ask why we are doing this. Why would you give up good, steady jobs to create something from nothing?
The answer is pretty simple really: we have a great solution to an everyday problem and we feel a great responsibility to share it with the world.
There are so many smart people around us who are smashing it at work (and in life!), but they feel crap about themselves because they donâ€™t feel like they are good with money.
We want to change that â€“ we want money to be another area of peoples lives that they are awesome at and which they feel proud of. We want to make peopleâ€™s money life super easy and enable them to feel clear and in control and know that they are making the most of their money.
Q: Is MyMoneyZen like MyBudget?
No. Not really. MyMoneyZen is quite different for 2 main reasons:
- MyBudget manages people's money for them, whereas the MyMoneyZen Online course teaches people how to set up a system to manage their money for them.
- MyBudget is well suited for people in debt, whereas MyMoneyZen is suited for people who are doing well but want to be clear and in control of their money.
Q: Who is MMZ for?
MyMoneyZen is best suited for people who:
- Have a regular income
- Want to feel clear and in control of their money Want to make the most of their money
- Are proactive and willing to put the time in to set up a system that will look after them for the years to come
This is not well suited for people who:
- Want someone else to manage their everyday money for them and are not willing to put some time in to set it up
- Have irregular or sporadic income
- Have crazy amounts of debt

No. We're all about giving you clarity and control around your money so that you can achieve what ever it is that you want with your money.

Q: How long does the online course take?
A significant amount of work is involved to get the system set up, and we make no apologies for this. This is how it works, you make all the decisions ahead of time and put all the effort in up front. However the good news is that once it's set up, it's very easy to use day to day and requires very little maintenance. Just a six monthly or yearly review.
As it is an online course people can choose how quick or slow they move through it and take the actions. Setting up time will vary depending on the person and how much time they put in. Some people might smash out the course in a day and take all the actions immediately, others might space it out over a week or a couple of weekends or even spread it out over the course of a month.
