Money talk: Open communications with your partner

by 24 Oct 2023The Money Brew Podcast

I didn’t grow up rich. In fact, I grew up in Housing Commission accommodation. And when I met my husband, Anthony, I was up to my eyeballs in debt. I also hadn’t filed a tax return in five or six years. Yikes!


When I realised our relationship was getting serious, I was scared to talk to Anthony about finances. But I found the courage to talk to him about it. And we’re still married 25 years later.


So, in this episode, I talk about:

  • The importance of discussing finances with your partner (honesty is key)
  • Why money is taboo, but it shouldn’t be
  • How financial planning helped Anthony and I afford vacations
  • The significance of having financial goals in a relationship

Kylie is the Yin to Anthony’s Yang.

With a Diploma in Financial Planning, she’s spent over 25 years in the financial services industry, using her knowledge and skills to successfully weave an adoration of style and travel, alongside business, into her life.

While Kylie brings experience and knowledge from brands like ANZ, HSBC, Deutsche Bank and Merrill Lynch, she also brings heart and inspiration to Creo Wealth. This shows in how she manages the Creo Wealth team who feel appreciated by Kylie (oh, and Anthony too!)

But Kylie’s heart and inspiration doesn’t stop there. She’s a huge spender and certifiable shoe addict. This, along with her upbringing, means Kylie truly understands how hard it is to get in touch with your money story.

She’s on a mission to educate people to help them understand their money story. And then give them the tools to begin rewriting it. Kylie loves to use her stylish shoes to kick-start people’s confidence to set and reach their financial goals.

And the fun part for Kylie?

She always looks classy when she challenges Anthony for that last M&M.
