About Matt Hern

I specialise in helping people make smart financial decisions, but what really lights me up is seeing people truly flourish.

I believe we are all born with abundant potential and deserve, even crave to live deeply fulfilling, authentic lives.

What I’ve observed is that our financial behaviours are one thing that gets in the way of living the life we’d love to.

So one thing I’m passionate about is making managing our money as smooth and easy as possible so that it helps rather than hinders our flourishing as humans. #lifehacks are a popular theme right now, so you can rephrase as – ‘I am passionate about hacking money’.

I believe that with some forethought, planning and purposeful action we can all get more life out of our money. Together we do this by defining what you really want in life and then chart a route that passes all of your important life experiences. We call this route a financial plan.
