My name is Kim Donnelly, and I am a certified member of the Spending Planner's Institute in Queensland.


Who Do I Love Working with and Helping the Most?

FIFO & DIDO mining families, who:
  • Are wage earners
  • Live apart for much of the time due to shift work rosters out of town, because they want to create a better life for their family
  • The husband is missing out on family time, often working overtime to try and keep ahead of the bills
  • The wife is dealing with all the day-to-day issues on her own while her partner is away
  • Want their children to experience all the things they perhaps didn’t have themselves as children
  • Often have irregular income due to varying rosters – ie 7 days on, 4 days off, 3 days on, 6 days off
  • May have cash flow problems whenever several bills are due at the same time as receiving low pays
  • May use a credit card and occasionally have difficulty paying it off in full each month

Why Do I Love Working with Them the Most?

Because they are genuinely lovely people who simply want the best for their families. They are keen to improve their financial situation and start to save some REAL money in order to nail their savings goals!
I make their budgeting journey fun, and weeks or months after they have finished working with me, I will often receive an excited message advising of their wins!!
I am privileged to be able to help so many amazing families who have achieved some awesome savings goals -
  • $20k - $30k loans paid out within 12 months;
  • Buying their dream home/acreage;
  • Being able to afford the prohibitive costs of IVF;
  • New cars;
  • Holidays;
  • Paying off credit card debt,
  • And more.
