For a long time, finance has been a boys’ club – but, thanks to these free resources, improving financial literacy has never been easier for women.
She’s on the Money
Financial advisor Victoria Devine is on a mission to help women – specifically young women – become more financially literate, and she’s using her podcast, ‘She’s on the Money,’ to do it. Each week, Victoria and her co-host Georgia chat candidly about different topics – from AfterPay to ‘sexually transmitted debt’ – and get the skinny on salaries, debt and savings goals with real Aussie women.
This free resource – created by the Australian Government – isn’t exclusively for women, but it does put a bevvy of financial information at your fingertips. Whether you’re looking to plan for your future, reduce your debt, learn more about investing or simply ask a question, Moneysmart is an easy-to-access educational resource put together by trusted professionals from the federal government and ASIC.
A new project by financial advice provider Switzer, Tilly Money is a digital platform geared towards women. While the bulk of their offering will be accessible via a paid membership, they have some great financial information available for free on their website. They have also just launched a podcast – hosted by Tilly Money CEO Maureen Jordan and content producer Clair Osman – which will no doubt offer even more money know-how.
She’s gone from being one of YouTube’s most beloved financial experts, to having her own podcast (Financial Foreplay) and a permanent slot on Channel 9, so it goes without saying that ‘SugarMamma’ Canna Campbell is a must-follow money expert. Her YouTube channel is full of informative, easy to follow videos, but you can also follow along with her latest money tips and tricks on her Instagram or website.
Ladies Finance Club
A collective of financially-literate ladies founded by UK money expert Molly Benjamin, the Ladies Finance Club is the Aussie arm of Molly’s OG workshop program, She’s on the Money (not to be confused with the aforementioned Australian podcast of the same name). The Ladies Finance Club puts on great in-person workshops, but if you’re looking for free info, their blog is an amazing starting point.
