Hi! I’m Angela Santalia, your Money Messenger.
A bit about me…
I didn’t come from money. I started with nothing, except a fascination with money. That fascination turned into a career in the Australian Financial Planning industry and after two decades, plus my own investment and life experience, I’ve definitely learned a lot about money, people, and their spending habits.
For the last ten plus years, I’ve worked as a freelance Financial Paraplanner. I work for myself, from home. My clients are Financial Advisers – I help them to prepare financial plans for their own clients, which detail recommendations on how to manage money, increase wealth, repay debt and protect assets.
I’ve written well over 10,000 Financial Plans for various types of clients – ranging from young couples just starting out their lives together, everyday mums and dads planning for retirement and high-income earners with assets in the eight figures to corporate clients managing millions of dollars of staff retirement savings and trustees managing royalty payments for Mining Rights. I’ve seen what strategies are available to get ahead financially and what to steer clear of – seen what works and what does not.
That knowledge and experience enabled me to be mortgage free by 25 and to create a property portfolio valued at over $3M AUD.
If I can do it, anyone can. I didn’t have any handouts and even had my fair share of a tough childhood with every available excuse to me.
I’m an ordinary Aussie girl and extremely good with money!
I want to share my knowledge with YOU, so you too can have a better life, no matter where you are at financially or what you earn. It’s all about using what you have now, but in a better way – all you need is an INCOME and some DETERMINATION.
Intention of the Money Messenger
- To teach the forgotten fundamentals of successful money management.
- To fill the knowledge gap of what is not taught at home or school.
- To reprogramme your everyday spending habits and help you control money.
You don’t need to earn a lot of money to have a better lifestyle and to have the things you want in life when you want them and all whilst growing your wealth at the same time. It’s true, there is another way.
There are strategies which you can use straight away to organise your money and get ahead financially. You can create more with what you have, simply from using what you have to its’ fullest potential, even if all you have is an income.
Your education level doesn’t matter, the amount of income you earn doesn’t matter. What matters is your desire to change what you are doing now, so you achieve different results. The financial secrets, tips, and tools that I have to share are tried, tested and proven to work. I have lived by them (some ever since starting work after leaving school) and they have served me well (and others). They are the essential foundation of successful money management. They are REAL. They WORK! I am living, breathing proof.
