Lisa Linfield has a BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) to teach 1 million women about money in the next seven years: how to make it, how to invest it and how to protect it. Having set the goal, the challenge was how to achieve it. And that’s led to a journey that’s taken her to do things she’d never dreamt of doing in her 19 years of working in corporate-based financial services.
Having worked in both South Africa and the UK for companies such as Halifax Bank of Scotland, Citigroup, Deloittes, Nedbank and Hollard, Lisa left in July 2017 to start her own wealth management business.
But she soon realised that working one-on-one wouldn’t enable her to reach 1 million women. So, she started Working Women’s Wealth just over a year ago. Her blog posts, newsletters, online videos and podcasts have become the primary way she’s working to reach her goal, with her podcast having reached over 10,000 downloads.
Having realised through her Employee Benefits work that, for most people, the real challenge is not wasteful spending, but struggling to make ends meet and to earn enough income for retirement saving, at the end of last year she launched an online training course, the 30 Day Side Hustle, to teach you how to build an online business from scratch. Her strong view is that EVERYONE needs a side hustle – whether you have enough money to retire or not.
