Formerly AJ Money Matters, this site was born from a late night text message with Julia asking Amanda if she wanted to start a financial blog...obviously the answer was yes.
We’re both just two millennials trying to navigate this complex world and this is our platform to share with you everything we’re learning and what we’re passionate about. Whether that’s finance, career, or lifestyle, we’re right there with you! Seriously, life can get hard so why not navigate it together….
I graduated from my Masters in Financial Management end of 2015 and I legit thought I was going to be landing a corporate career with a big firm, in the city and working my way up. But, that didn't happen. I went to work for a company in the energy industry and ended up actually loving it in the end.
One of the BEST things I ever did was start this blog with Jules and it's paved the way for more opportunities where I've finally started my own biz in stock photography and copywriting at www.plushcontentco.com.
I lived on the Gold Coast for most of my life but have recently made the move to Brisbane and I couldn't be happier. I'm a creative, I'm an ice-cream and doughnut enthusiast, and bit of a fitness fanatic. I will always have a bottle of red wine in the house and I'm kinda obsessed with honey butter popcorn (you probably have guessed by now I REALLY like food).

In 2015 I graduated with my Master of Finance and thought I knew exactly what I wanted to do with my life. Psych!
Let's quickly rewind, I'm originally from Arizona and moved to Australia in 2014 with the expectations of only staying for 6 months... well, let's just say that didn't pan out, I've been here for 3 years now and just received my residency! (Excited squeal).
Present day, 2017, you can say this year is shaping up to be for me... landed a great gig with an Investment Bank, received my Aussie residency, and made my first buck from the blog.
Since learning all the ins and outs with this blog, it's finally clicked with my ultimate passions (aside from my main career). Let's just say, it's a movement for everyone. Lifestyle and travel is a huge part of my life and I'm excited to share it with the world to get involved head over to www.hellofreesail.com!
Lover of all sports... mostly soccer (Go Gunners) and football (Go Packers) and footy (Go Broncos). Foodie. Bookworm. Creator.
