Let me know if this sounds familiar... 

  • You know you need to have more (or some) money in your savings
  • You want to invest but you're unsure how or where to start
  • You're scared you're not at the age and stage you should be but you're not sure how to catch up
  • You're tired of the financial sabotage loop you're caught in but you're not sure how to step out

  • You're ready to own your financial situation and look after your future self


You know when it comes to your finances, things need to change...

you're sick of
feeling left behind

Placeholder Image

you're frustrated at your inability to do better

but you're not sure what to do to get ahead

You know it's time to financially grow up and sort yourself out. 

I know from helping clients with their finances for over 2 decades that many people reach a certain birthday or milestone and decide it’s time to financially grow up and sort themselves out.

The problem is, one-on-one financial advice is expensive. And books are great, but sometimes we need help that’s a little more intensive.

That’s why I created the My Financial Adulting Plan.

Here, over 8 weeks I'll work with you through the incredible content I've thoughtfully created, the videos I've recorded, the financial strategic plan you'll complete, the questions I'll answer inside the Closed Facebook Group, the Live Q&As I'll run with you for the entire 8 weeks to move you from the place you are now to a place even you don't believe is possible.

Perhaps you’re at a place where you’re financially overwhelmed, you know you want to do more with your finances but don't know where to start or for some of you, if you're honest, you're a little financially screwed. Or maybe you’re at a place where you’re feeling financially meh. Or perhaps you’re at a place where you think you’re doing financially ok but you’d love to be doing better. As long as you know it's time to try something different - this is the course for you.

I can’t wait to work with you.

No questions! I'm ready for this!

Clare Elsworth

"I have a dirty little secret. I'm terrible with money and finances..and over the past few years, I have had to learn some VERY tough lessons around money, and debt.
AND then, whaddya know she launches My Financial Adulting Plan and I can honestly say it's incredible!

Ready to take control of your finances?

"I took an interest in personal finance about six or seven years ago and have been taking small steps to get better along the way, but My Financial Adulting Plan was what has really helped me to get clear on what I want in life, and how to bridge the gap between where I am and where I want to go. She keeps things fun and grounded, but also fact-based (thought not in an overwhelming way). I also appreciate having a mix in our cohort of business owners, corporate rockstars, and women in all different places in their finance journey. 
This program has helped me put in routine habits to make sure I always have my finger on the pulse with where my money is going, and helped me to realize a life of financial freedom isn't as far away or daunting as it initially seemed. So glad a mentor got me onto Mel's brand, and can't wait to see where these new behaviours and mindsets take my finances.


Erika Siabatto
"Talking about money is still a sensitive matter, is hard to openly share with all my network but I used to be broke and very stressed about money. I read books and articles and downloaded Apps that I never used, I failed once and again to change my money habits until I bumped into a book called Unf*ck Your Finances, then More Money For Shoes, then it all slowly started clicking, but still didn't change my life. One day, while crying about money I checked Melissa Browne's website, she is the author of these books I read. I wanted to see if she had a seminar, training or anything that would help me. That was in October last year.
Today I'm so proud to be able to celebrate that I am totally debt-free. I have learned to invest in shares, I have done a total 180 in my relationship with money, I educated myself to work towards a life I'm excited about, where I understand my finances. I didn't do all this alone, Melissa Browne did have a course I took; Financial Adulting Plan, a course I can't recommend enough to these in my network that are suffering in silence because of money-related stress... Please, please give this a chance, I promise you won't regret it!"


Melissa Browne


Hey there, I'm Melissa.

 Along with Lauren Law aka 'Lawsie', I'm here to help you to create your Financial Adulting Plan.

Lawsie and I are a Gen Y and Gen X'er who have worked together for over a decade and helped thousands of women (and a few good men) just like you positively transform their finances. We're both ex-accountants and ex-financial advisors and importantly, we both invest ourselves. In fact, in my forties I have the option to work or not (having come back from less than nothing in my thirties after giving my entire divorce proceeds to charity - but that's a story for another day.) While Lawsie, in her mid-thirties, can choose her hours and how she works because of how freaking financially savvy and disciplined she is .

We have all of the skills, experience and expertise to help you to create your own dream life and financial plan that future you will love you for (without you having to sacrifice your daily coffee). 


Good, because there's something I need to tell you.

You know how you see people who all look like they have their shit together while you're caught in a financial self-sabotage loop? Here's a secret, they don't have it together. For too many people, their lives & their finances are all smoke and mirrors and they're desperately juggling and hoping it will all turn out in the end.

I don't want that for you. Imagine if you could start to design a life you love, with the finances to suit, which meant you could finally relax about money. Imagine what that would feel like. I know, because I've done it not just for myself, but for the thousands of women I've helped. Including you if you'll let me.

Stop putting off your ability to create financial freedom and options

The situation you're in right now doesn't have to determine your future. 

You've come this far because you know you're capable of more. I know that your financial success depends on the right money mindset and habits as well as equipping you with the knowledge so that you can decide what's right for you and your values. 

This isn't a seven step, one size fits all program. It's about you realising who you are, facing up to where you are now, understanding where you want to go and creating a plan to make it happen.

I'm committed to helping you have a healthy financial future. If you are too, I'll show you the way. 

I know this course may seem expensive at first glance but think about how much more it will cost you NOT to do anything. And sure, you might argue you don't have time, but life is always busy and chances are your finances are something you always put off. Because it seems too hard.

Why not try something different. I'll be here to hold your hand - so take a deep breath and join me. You'll be so happy you did.
