About

Welcome to This Thing Called Money, a place for people who dream of something different. For those that don’t want to tread that well-worn path of normality. For those that don’t want life to just pass them by.

This is a site for those that want to live their life on their own terms.

I’m Kat, and when I was a child my Mum used to call me contrary. ‘Contrary since birth’ was the phrase I think she used! And all my life I have shunned the traditional path we are supposed to take in order to be ‘successful’ and ‘fulfilled’.

A 9-5 desk job, completing the same tasks day in and day out, for average pay and an allocated number of days holiday? For 45+ years? My god, no thank you.

That does not scream ‘success’ or ‘fulfilment’ to me.

If that sounds like you too, you’ve come to the right place. I knew there were other people out there that felt like me.

To escape the traditional way of living though, we need to find more non-traditional ways of thinking about money and making money. Anyone can make more money, but it’s all about how making that money changes your life.

My truth is that you make money to make time for the things that matter.

It’s not really the money that matters – it’s the freedom it buys you. You are buying your way out of an unfulfilling, soul-crushing way of life.

All I’ve learned and continue to learn, I want to share with you.

I created This Thing Called Money so that, through my knowledge and experiences, I can help you navigate your way out, to a new way of living – living your life on your own terms.

Kat 🙂
