Spending Planner – Amira MacCue

Making a difference

I’m Amira MacCue, founder of Your Money Habit. My mission is to teach people new methods of “budgeting” that help them go from feeling ashamed, embarrased, afraid and/or confused about their money situation to empowered and accomplished. Most of us weren’t taught how to manage money successfully but we think it is something we should just know how to do. If we don’t get it right, we assume something is wrong with us. Nothing could be further from the truth.

I was motivated to start the business because I grew up in a family that was constantly worried about money and that then translated into financial worries as an adult too. In 2005 I’d had enough of living in fear- fear of the future for myself and my family, fear of creditors asking for money I didn’t have, fear that I was a failure.

I decided to search for a better way and found it. After achieving success with my own finances I wanted to help other people achieve the same type of success. I know it can be difficult to trust someone to help you with such a personal challenge but the longer you wait the wider the gap gets from where you are to where you want to be. As the german proverb states “A problem shared is a problem halved”

Feel free to reach out to me on Facebook or just send me a message. There is certainly no obligation in a chat.

I am also very passionate about making an impact in our global community. We are fortunate to be part of B1G1’s Giving program  as well as supporting Australian youth and domestic violence programs.
