Are You a Sports Car Stuck in Traffic?

March 29, 2017 | Marisa Hoffenberg

Of course, we no longer openly set new year’s resolutions (the new year’s fairy does not bring along miraculous transformations and this is a pointless exercise doomed to failure). But admit it, you have set subconscious resolutions – you have work goals, relationship goals, an image of the desired bikini body and of course financial […]

Check Your Financial Health in Just 5 Minutes

January 19, 2017 | Marisa Hoffenberg

While we regularly check our skin for wrinkles, spots and stray hairs and our body for every bump or wobble – our finances go largely unchecked. Yes, we look at monthly inflows and outflows, but not the larger picture. As our finances do not stare back at us in the mirror everyday, they are pretty […]

Online Strategies when working from home

What is it about Cinderella? From the first time I read it to my daughter she was completely enamored. I wonder if it is the handsome prince who rescues her or perhaps the notion that if our hearts are good and pure we will always be looked after. As we get older we burn our […]

Overpriced Insurance In Cheap Packaging

September 15, 2016 | Marisa Hoffenberg

If I want to buy something, I go online. It’s easier, cheaper and the same product. And believe me I have experience in this area – an entire shoe cupboard which is testament to my savvy online shopping. So if everyone takes it for granted that online is cheaper, couldn’t a company just put up […]

Get Paid To Be Healthy

March 15, 2016 | Marisa Hoffenberg

Sounds like one of those get rich quick schemes or miracle diets – but don’t roll your eyes and press delete quite yet. Anyone who has come to one of my seminars knows that I really don’t love talking about insurance. Yes it is 100% necessary but it is also seriously morbid. I have this […]

Are You Thinking About Leaving Your Other Half?

December 14, 2015 | Marisa Hoffenberg

Of course you have, we all have, and many have actually taken the plunge. One of a woman’s biggest concerns in this situation is money – particularly if this is not something that she has taken care of before. Even if she is reasonably on top of her finances, many of the arrangements that have […]

Women Need Financial Advice for Women

November 13, 2015 | Marisa Hoffenberg

Women are pretty vulnerable when it comes to money – we need more but earn less. Our security can only come through understanding our own needs then gaining the knowledge and confidence to address them. As most financial planners are men, it comes as no surprise that financial plans are built around men. It’s time […]

6 Reasons Why Women Avoid Managing Their Finances

October 15, 2015 | Marisa Hoffenberg

I don’t have time This is the most common excuse. Between a career, managing the house and looking after the kids we don’t have a second spare. To put having no time in perspective, it’s like saying “I just don’t get a chance to buy the pill”. It is a pretty high risk approach. My […]
