Show Notes

Welcome to Parents in the Know. I’m Emily M Morgan and today we have a great new interview. I’m going to be chatting with Helen Baker, a financial adviser and strong supporter of single parents. Helen’s advice can be found in Lift Magazine for single mothers and she also has a website called “On Your Own Two Feet”.  She also works with Naomi Douglas at Divorce Support Australia.

Helen’s aim is to help those who are newly single or planning to be so soon to re-establish their foundations, by providing financial advice and walking alongside them through their journey so they can get back on their own two feet.

As a qualified financial adviser Helen wants all of her clients to experience safe, trusted, genuine financial advice. Her background includes living in the UK for 8 years where she worked for Robbie Williams’ management team and the associated businesses. She has also worked at high level jobs in various countries including the USA and has spent time restructuring businesses, guiding new inventors to commercialize their products and applying her finance knowledge to many companies in relation to their software.

Helen has a Bachelor of Commerce, a Masters in Innovation and Change Management, an Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning and is finalizing her Masters of Financial Planning.  And now she has turned all that experience and knowledge into ways to help single parents.

Aside from her own websites, Helen also recommends Melissa Meagher’s work at Talking Money, for great resources and advice on learning the world of financial security and teaching these essential skills to your kids.

You can also catch Helen talking finance on the radio at 96.5FM on Wednesday nights at 8:00pm.

So, next week on Parents In The Know, we will return to our usual format and take a look at learning a new language.  What age is good for learning languages, why it’s important, the upsides and downsides, and the multilingual child.  Learning a language, next week on Parents in the Know.
