Hi! I’m Charlotte – a qualified Family Money Coach.
Financial advisers, banks, online gurus and even the media focus on telling families that they need to spend less and save more, that having more money means fewer problems.
But in my experience, Money isn't what families value. We value time, experiences and our relationships.
Of course money can "smooth" some of the bumps in the road, but it alone can't make us happy.
I created The FMC to provide a service that helps families to really look at both their finances and life and ask - is our money giving us the life we truly value?
Trivia about me

I am Charlotte’s husband – and very much not a money coach.
I hope you enjoy looking around this website and reading our blog – because the emphasis in Charlotte’s “world” isn’t on the “finances” at all.
Charlotte helps families, just like us, think about whether the money they have is helping them achieve what they want.

Rosalind was, and continues to be, the daily inspiration for The FMC.
She couldn’t write her own introduction because she’s only 3 – but her role is super important nevertheless.
Rosalind reminds me everyday why creating The FMC was (and remains) so important - because a family creates the foundation of a child's life - teaching them what's important, and what's not.
Family money coaching isn’t about money - it's about your values. And it's about getting maximum value from your money for the benefit of your family.
