So what is Best Intentions all about?
“Best Intentions’ mission is to empower everyone to take control of their money and grow their wealth. More and more we are aware of the need to nurture our physical and mental wellbeing. But financial wellbeing is the last missing link from the discussion. With our Best Intentions community, we share the tools required to build and maintain financial wellbeing forever. This is through events, courses, blogs and podcasts.”
What inspired you to start Best Intentions?
“We met through a mutual friend and bonded over our mission to help more people take control of their financial wellbeing. Our journeys to this point were quite different – Mel had spent many hours over the years, puzzling over how to get a handle on her money, realised how insanely difficult it was and is now intent on demystifying it for as many people as possible.
