Camilla Mendoza is a dynamic facilitator, public speaker, small business mentor and life coach with a passion for helping people gain financial independence. As a mother of two, Camilla is keenly aware of how the habits and attitudes that develop during the teen years directly impact the rest of a young person’s life. Like many of us, she has witnessed first hand the negative impact that bad spending habits developed in younger years can have on a person’s entire life. Deeply concerned about the lack of financial education young people receive from the school system, their parents and the wider community, Camilla has made it her mission to change the story for young people just starting their lives. Knowing how crucial it is for teens to be set up for a healthy relationship with money long term, Camilla has created specialised programs that build solid ‘money sense’ in teenagers.
“Teenagers need guidance on how to manage their money. Many are earning quite substantial sums already, so the earlier good saving and spending habits are instilled in them, the better.” – Camilla Mendoza
The journey to now... A former mortgage broker with a decades-long history working in corporate sectors as well as running her own successful businesses, Camilla has spent years working with people on their finances. She noticed that women especially, sometimes felt intimidated and apathetic around money, and even felt trapped due to an uncertain financial position. This led Camilla to create an information resource containing everything women needed to know in order to build a positive financial future. This resource was the first of Camilla’s Money Mastery courses – Money Mastery for Women. With extensive training as a Business Mentor, Camilla currently works with both private clients and small business owners, teaching them the strategies to gain and maintain control of their finances so they can assure the prosperity of their business long-term. She regularly holds workshops teaching practical and useful tools to help people of all ages understand and manage their money – the latest being her Money Mastery for Teens workshop. Camilla is thrilled to be part of the journey to wealth for both women and now junior entrepreneurs alike.
