  • What’s your favourite thing about being part of the MWS team?

    Connecting our family law clients with financial planners who are realistic and practical, so that our clients can be assisted with financial planning before negotiating something like a property settlement and in giving effect to a property settlement.

  • What do you wish people knew about financial planning?

    That you will understand what your financial planner is explaining to you. Financial planning is a collaborative process, it will open your eyes to being forward thinking in terms of making financial decisions.

  • What's your favourite book, movie and food?

    Book: Tully by Paulina Simons

    Movie: Any dance film or legal drama (Dirty Dancing, The Firm, A Few Good Men)

    Food: Chocolate!!

     

  • If you could give one piece of advice to the Lisa from 10 years ago, what would it be?

    You will do things you never thought you could.

  • What's your weirdest office habit?

    Walking quickly around the office as my theory is that great workers are fast walkers.

  • What's the one thing about you that people would be surprised to learn?

    I love to dance! I am constantly dancing around the house. In 2018, I was a contestant in the Dancing CEO’s, in which each year Brisbane’s leading CEOs swap the boardroom for the City Hall dance floor in front of 1000 guests to support the prevention of domestic violence and raise money for Women’s Legal Service.

  • If you could have dinner with anyone past or present, who would it be and why?

    Beyonce and Jay-Z (because Beyonce is life!)

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

Joining My Wealth Solutions was one of the best decisions I’ve made – they have a great team there and communication is fantastic. Ben walked me through the whole process and I knew I was in safe hands with the transparent explanations of all aspect’s of what I could expect. I can’t recommend them highly enough and am excited about what’s to come.

So far my experience with Ben and the team at My Wealth Solutions has been exemplary. They have offered fantastic, reliable and prompt advice and their knowledge far outweighs the cost of service. I would recommend this route to anyone seeking financial advice. Looking forward to my future even more so thanks to My Wealth Solutions.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

The team are extremely professional and helpful. Ben has taught me so much already and now I feel like real wealth creation is the reality of my future rather than something that I’m just hoping for. Emily has always gone over and above to make everything really easy for us as well as answering any questions we might have quickly and efficiently. I have and will continue to recommend MWS to any of my friends or family.

Changed to Ben and the guys at My Wealth and have found them very active in setting up my finances after years of neglect. I liked that Ben challenged our thinking, was flexible in setting up our finances, and the team were very active in setting everything up.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

Ben and the team at My Wealth Solutions have been incredible to work with. They discussed our financial situation and proposed ways to improve our position in an easy but professional manner that left us feeling very secure about the future. Timely responses to our questions and keeping us up to date on changes and progress only enhanced the feeling of trust we had with them. Thoroughly recommend the team if you are looking for sound financial assistance.

CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

Honestly I had no real plan about my financial future and I was told to go and see a financial advisor by my accountant. He highly recommended Ben and the team at My Wealth Solutions and after the first visit I could see why…after my first visit I left with a plan about my financial future and some seriously exciting goals to work towards. Since then the team have been more than accomodating with putting everything in place…
