Going through the Men, Women and Money Programme with Lynda has opened our eyes, busted myths and triggered important conversations about our relationship with money, and each other. After going into the programme feeling pretty overwhelmed, we now feel we can have a positive relationship with money and control it – rather than the other way around!

“Money mornings was everything and above what I was hoping it to be. Lynda and Penny shared their knowledge in an engaging and informative way – it was an easy to understand and inspirational few hours.
I would thoroughly recommend women to go along and get valuable insights that are beneficial to running a business. I came away feeling energised with a new outlook on money and sales to enhance my business. “

Money Mornings Testimonial:
“I work in Milestone Financial Services as an Authorised Financial Adviser. My specialty is holistic financial planning. Attending Money Mornings was a great experience.
I loved hearing from Lynda, who is always fabulous, but her insights into why we fail or succeed and how we can trick our brain or change our thinking around money.. I can use this with so many different clients. Personally, I took out of it a different way of thinking about my own money plan. I mentally limit myself more often than I realised, where Lynda talked about how to expand your options!
I consider myself pretty money savvy, however I found tons of inspiration in hearing from Penny about sales and specific ideas around how to generate more valuable business and really push myself further. Being clear, knowing your numbers, above all don’t apologise for charging or sell yourself short with unnecessary discounts. Value yourself! I can honestly say I have implemented this in my business since.
The day wasn’t just fun, and wonderful networking with really amazing and smart women, but I got real value out of the exercises we did. Having open discussions and hearing from problems other business women faces as a real insight. Highly recommend this workshop, and I cannot speak highly enough of Penny and Lynda.”

“The Morning Mornings seminar offered great psychological insights, plus some practical tools for helping grow your business, for personal and professional success. I’d definitely attend another!”

“In 7 weeks, under Lynda’s expert guidance, I’ve completely changed my relationship with money. I feel empowered. I’m clear on my goals. I have a great plan in place. And I’ve never felt more in control of my finances.
I’d known for decades that there was something flawed in my thinking about money. I’d seen psychologists to try to figure it out. But I never got even close to understanding the root of what was going on. After one session with Lynda I had a complete breakthrough about my values (which are great!) and how they were driving my spending (which was bad!). Within 3 sessions I became aware of some deep-rooted, misguided beliefs that have always held me back. The simple act of becoming aware meant I was able to implement instant change.
Once the head stuff was sorted Lynda helped me get the numbers organised. We improved my accounting practices dramatically, separating my personal from my business with surgical precision! We planned, rejigged, refined, revisited, and recalculated until I got my head around it all. I am NOT a numbers person, but Lynda was supportive and understanding and always close on hand.
I can’t recommend Lynda enough. She was generous with her time, encouraging, on call, and taught me things about my business I had no idea I needed to learn. Whether your finances are in dire straits or you just know they can be improved, don’t hesitate–you’ll get the results you want!”
“By the time you’re hitting 60, there are quite a few things you should have sorted out in life. One of them is knowing how much you earn and how to manage it. I was a terrible flop at this. When I met Lynda, I had been in a prolonged state of pathetic ignorance about my finances. I was paying too much in insurance, had no idea how I would ever pay back my mortgage, and was earning erratically.
All I knew was that despite working hard, I was going backwards and had very few prospects of going forwards. I had no idea how to tackle the situation, never having learned anything about financial management beyond my mother’s advice to “live within my means”. (Mother didn’t understand about the irresistible antiques shop just down the road and how my passport required regular outings and adventures.)
Then I met Lynda! She smiles, yes, but she’s got a fierce heart and enough strength to nail down the most precarious of circumstances. She allowed me to have some wild financial dreams to start with, but very quickly, order was imposed. I sold my house, paid back the bank, cut my insurance payments by two-thirds, drove past the antiques shop without stopping, and kept an eye on income and outgoings.
Painlessly, I learned to live within my means. And it has been a huge relief. Lynda has guided, suggested, coaxed, instructed, and demonstrated so effectively. Even though we’ve still got some way to go, I feel much more mature and calmer about money. It’s almost hard to believe. But one thing I know for sure. Lynda Moore? Priceless!”

“We are a manufacturing jeweller, and deal mostly in remodelling or hand-making jewellery for clients. We aim to create the absolute best quality piece of jewellery possible given our client’s budget.
We have attended two Money Mentalist workshops on Anchoring and are delighted at the outcome. By giving our clients several different options (using the Anchoring theory), helps us better show customers where their money is being spent. We have been pleasantly surprised that nearly all our clients, when given this choice, opt for quality.
A classic example: a customer wanted some of her old rings melted down and re-modelled into a piece that she loved and could enjoy wearing everyday. She had several diamonds already, but we thought the design that she had her heart set on needed a few more. We did her one sketch of the design using her existing stones and another showing the design with the increased number of stones. Wanting to keep her options open, we also gave her a much lighter, cheaper option, using the bare-minimum amount of gold, and just her existing stones. When we explained each option, she chose to go with the middle option; a design that was still a decent weight and not the cheaper design.
Another example of where we were blown away by the results of the Anchoring system. Our client immediately went for the most expensive – top quality option! Simply by giving her the three options of exactly the same design but the top one being of a higher carat of gold and a better grade of diamond.
Anchoring has without a doubt worked for us EVERY single time. If our clients don’t go for the mid-range priced item, they go for the highest. Not once have they gone for the lowest priced item.”
-Penny Harwood, Harwood Goldsmith
“I was recommended to Lynda by a business colleague of mine – and I was so pleased for the introduction. We were in the process of developing our new ‘BreakThrough Women in Business’ Program and were needing to package up the content and decide on pricing options.
Lynda was integral in helping us shape the programs and set pricing options to suit different stages in business. She has a great ability to help you get clear about what you want to achieve and has a valuable practical approach to turn it into a ‘do-able’ workable plan.
Lynda’s coaching around money mindset also helped us feel good about what we are charging and the value our clients will be receiving. If you want a fast way to transform your thinking around money and business – spend some time with Lynda from the Money Mentalist….!”
