Hello! I’m Sara Lucas, a terrible runner but luckily quite good at writing, speaking and helping people sort out their money mindset.
Where I came from
I’ve been in the finance industry for almost thirty years now and have been lucky enough to work all over the world for a bunch of big names, Macquarie and Rothschild amongst them.
The turning point came during 2008/9 when the global economy collapsed and I was working 16-hour days, talking indebted, suicidal bankers off ledges (literally), travelling all over the world for someone else’s deals, had 3 small children at home and was never off my smartphone.
So one day I just stopped for a breath
and co-founded a non-profit to support female entrepreneurs because I felt there simply weren’t enough avenues to grow women’s enterprise back then, and the business mix was a bit unbalanced.
Then I sold one business, folded another, but found that all of my interests were in the field of helping women be the best they can be.
Whether we’re talking about having our own income, over marital choices, our fertility or lifestyle choices, we simply want to be able to choose the right outcomes for ourselves and our loved ones, wherever we live in the world and whatever our socio-economic group. Knowledge is power.
Financial Services is like The Hotel California, you can check in but you can never leave
and I’m back at my Sydney city desk, once again a financial adviser. This time I’m working with British people who have seen the light and moved to Australia, and I help make their financial realities fund their Australian Dreams.
When I’m not wrangling money for clients
I get paid for it, do you?
Social marketing is a simple business model that’s booming globally as people want more time, more financial freedom and more flexibility.
I sell the world’s best health and wellness products, help other people build their own health and wellness businesses and improve the productivity of social networks.
Arbonne is my brand of choice because it’s classy, our products are Pure, Safe and Beneficial and the culture is all about having each other’s backs.
Check out my luxury health and wellness line here.
All of my business interests are referral based, reputation is everything. If I can help you please email me, I’d love to hear from you. firstname.lastname@example.org
Other past ventures on hold for now because I’d be stretched a little thin
The Kitchen Table fast tracks smart, enthusiastic women through a journey of financial knowledge over champagne and cheese, it’s entirely referral based.
I write sassy copy for professional firms who desire connection with raw humanity and sass. My clients include forward-thinking banks, finance houses, and professional firms like this one. Again, all referral based.
