Women in Control – Video transcript


“I think it’s important that everyone knows about finances and particularly women because the figures tell us that more women will live in poverty on retirement we know that women’s careers get interrupted.”


“I grew up with a dad that really took care of all my financial advice, he used to be a financial adviser, so that was great but at 37 now I think it’s time for me to stand on my own two feet.”


“I find I often have to say to women, ‘Do you realize how good you are?’, because often they don’t realize how good they are.”


“I was always lucky because I thought long term and thought quite strategically; not only with my business but with my sport and with my career and financially as well.”


“Just do it, you’re not going to get anywhere by doing nothing, and it’s really satisfying when you do.”


“I’ve always been a motivator of myself. I worked out a long time ago that if I wanted to get anywhere; if I wanted to do anything with my life but all it was going to be up to me!”
