"As part of our annual health and wellbeing initiative program our College was fortunate to have Larissa present to our staff the Foundations for Financial Fitness, providing valuable tips and information around improving your financial decision making. The presentation was well received and feedback from staff was very positive. We would definitely engage with Larissa again in the future. "
Justin – College of Arts and Social Sciences, The Australian National University.
"Your Money Mistress addressed our gathering
with humour as she explained how intimacy
and personal financial health affects
productivity in the workplace. Her
entertaining, novel approach to
these sensitive topics enabled the
audience to relax and learn as her
pearls of wisdom gave much food
for thought. We look forward to
having her back again."
Bondi Chamber of Commerce NSW
“Larissa shares from the heart, with
real emotion and positive insights so
that others may learn. She adapts for
each audience and really connects with
and inspires attendees. Many of our clients
have attended multiple presentations by
Larissa over the years and her affable, fun
and professional delivery, along with genuine
caring is why we keep asking her back. Very
entertaining and great value for money!”
Canberra Women’s Centre ACT
“I expected to be bored, and for
it to go in one ear and out the other.
My expectations weren’t met because it
made me think more about my finances.
It was great!”

“Your Money Mistress is a must see!
She has you laughing, has no qualms
about sharing her innermost experiences
and most of all, wants us all to have more
love, less debt and less stress. There were
men and women, young and old in the
audience and we all came away feeling
great about being able to enrich our own
lives with what she shared.”
“Individuals who learn the transferable
skill of managing money and resources,
are an asset to the organisation. And healthy,
happy, financially secure families are an asset
to society. That's why I'm so passionate about
helping people improve their performance,
at work and at home.”
In 2002 as an Army Officer on Long Service Leave, with 8 part time jobs and 3 negatively geared investment properties, YMM developed the Basic Budgeting process. Her clients have been using the process since 2004.
After a 2004 Discussion Paper requesting submissions on worldwide financial literacy research, the Australian Federal Government promoted workplace financial literacy training, touting benefits for employers and employees.
In 2011 due to their above national average results, National Financial Fitness (YMM’s PG rated company) is selected for the small Australian Securities & Investments Commission Panel of Financial Literacy Experts.
YMM has presented to over 16,000 people and personally trained over 6,500. In the 2010 election she received more primary votes than the Hon Matt Thistlethwaite MP in NSW. This proves the level of community support for YMM.
