Meet Chigo- My Money Story

I believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive and make an impact; your personality, your sense of humour, and most importantly, your truth. So here goes my story.

I was raised with the mindset that money was scarce and that you have to go without sometimes.


Simply put, I grew up around poverty, many of the kids around were not guaranteed secondary school education or even 3 meals a day.


I know what it feels like not to know where your next meal is coming from, to be so worried about money you cannot sleep at night.

For over 10 years, I have been passionate about budgeting, saving and money management and the skills have been a priceless gift for me and my family. 


I realized it was not only about how much you make but how much you keep. I believe everyone deserves this gift and the peace of mind of knowing all your needs will be covered.



Why I Created The Budget Fairy

I have helped friends sort through their finances and that lightbulb moment when they realize they already have what they need with money left over is just incredible to watch.


I love having this direct impact and seeing the smile on peoples' faces. I created TheBudgetFairy to expand my impact.

I am passionate about this subject and truly believe that most of us in the Western world have all we need if only we had a little help to really see it. We would be more relaxed, probably sleep better and be overall healthier. 

I want my clients to go from not knowing where their money goes each month to feeling in control Have a sense of having enough; go from Budget Novice to Budget Wiz.
