I am Eileen Adamson, working with UK based female teachers and selected brands and partners.
My mission is to help women to become happier, healthier and wealthier, through taking control of their lives and their money.
I was thrilled to be shortlisted for “Best Personal Finance Blog” at the UK Money Bloggers Awards in 2018 and for “Best Finance Blog” at the UK Blog Awards in 2019.
Another highlight is featuring, as money coach, on BBC Radio Scotland's Clever About Cash series.
I didn’t set out to become a certified Money Coach, but life took an unplanned turn that led me there!
I had planned 2 children, but surprise twins left us with 3 under 2. Life was too stressful, practically, emotionally and financially. Full-time teaching & 3 young kids left me shattered, stressed and skint! I felt like a terrible teacher, and an even worse mum.
It had to stop, so I cut down to 2 days teaching, and started my own bookkeeping business, which made it easier to cope. However, having less money meant I grew to hate money. We got by each month, but had very little in savings, and no way of paying for a big emergency. This, and the fact that we had no money for fun, made me feel constantly anxious and worried about money.
I didn’t know who to talk to, where to turn or how to help myself.
I then discovered Denise Duffield-Thomas, a money mentor for business women, After learning tons about money mindset from her, I began to feel much calmer and happier about money.
We created an emergency fund, built up our savings and investments, and started planning for us to both retire early, and spend time travelling.
I now feel richer, happier and more content than ever before, with less stress than in full-time teaching. I have learned how to use the money I have to create financial security and make me and my family happy.
I am now passionate about helping other female teachers to live happier, more content lives, while creating financial security for them and their families.
How can I help you?
