Since 2007, our financial personal trainers have enabled more than 6,000 kiwis achieve their financial goals. The results or outcomes are different for each client. Many have been able to get into their first homes much sooner than they ever imagined. Others who already have a mortgage are on track to be mortgage free years earlier, and to save hundreds of thousands in interest costs. The need to be mortgage free pre-retirement is a goal that everyone must achieve, and we specialise in this process. Please see a selection of some clients’ stories below.

Shane & Toni, Auckland

We have been working with enableMe Takapuna for the last 18 months; before we joined enableMe our financial situation was alright. A year earlier we had purchased our first house in Hamilton with a goal to build up the equity and buy a family home in Auckland. Our mortgage wasn’t structured in the best possible way and no matter how much we saved we just seemed to be floating along not getting anywhere with our mortgage or savings. We were getting frustrated that no matter what we did with our money we thought we were never going to get into our own property in Auckland. Then on a drive home from work one night an ad appeared on the radio for enableMe and we both thought that this is something we needed. We described our situation as starting out.

Our first meeting with Katie and Shelley was an eye-opener for us and instantly we knew that this program was right for us: it was a ‘no-brainer’ to sign up. They told us straight away that we could have our mortgage paid off in 5 years instead of the 30 years that we were currently scheduled to pay it off. Since working with Shelley our frustrations have disappeared, we’ve become more structured, disciplined and in control of our money, whilst still enjoying the little things in life and maintaining a healthy outlook on our finances.

We have now been working with Shelley at the Takapuna branch for 18 months and couldn’t be happier. We’ve even purchased our first house in Auckland. We are extremely pleased with the service enableMe has provided us with and highly recommend them. We cannot wait to see what else we achieve in the future.

Adrian & Cathi Lane, Morrinsville

Totally transformed our outlook on money from being afraid of spending it to being in control of it. We will now be mortgage free in 2 years instead of another 12 and that’s in spite of having a budget for fun stuff built in. Have recommended to many friends and family.

I’m six months into my financial freedom plan with enableMe. The mix of the plan, quarterly check ins, and the tools I have access to – make it work. The results, for me, started showing right away. Wish I’d done this years ago.

The behaviours, disciplines and healthy attitude towards money that the enableMe philosophy instills in you is without doubt life changing. Every dollar invested in getting enableMe to help sort my finances out has paid back 10 fold in the first year. I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism, knowledge and expertise offered by the staff.

It’s only a ‘miracle cure’ if you’re willing to put in the hard yards make some realistic honest changes and take their advise and guidance on board!

Profound thanks to all and I will definitely be using your services again soon!!

Lucyanne and Dimitrious, Auckland

My husband Dimitrious and I have been with enableMe for one full term and have now started our second term. We came across enableMe by watching Fair Go with Hannah McQueen presenting. Instantly we knew we had to investigate this further. So I called and was set up with a meeting with Dianne Barlow.

Dianne is a pleasure to work with; we are so happy with her service. Whenever we go into our meetings with her, we always come out feeling refreshed and organised. I really believe in the enableMe product and any opportunity I have, I share my experience and I am only sad that my family and friends haven’t taken the further steps to book their own meeting. However as great as your product is, I believe the relationship that we have built with Dianne has been far more superior. It is hard to trust someone with your finances and not to feel judged on what your spending habits are. We fell off the bandwagon and was dreading our meeting with Dianne, but she never judged us, she picked us up and we moved on; looking at what we can do better. Dianne has been a wonderful financial trainer, a lovely lady who has helped us tremendously. We are forever grateful for her help.

Lucy and Simon, Takapuna

My husband and I have very different attitudes to money… I believe that happiness is derived directly from shoe and handbags, whereas he is a pathological saver! This made for a bit of financial disharmony, as you can imagine.

We went to EnableMe as we wanted to undergo a ‘financial reset’ and establish some tangible goals that we were both happy with. Katie was absolutely fantastic. She was hugely diplomatic when my husband and I bickered in the first meetings and she helped us find a middle ground that we could work towards.

We also wanted to consider buying an investment property and she negotiated a fantastic mortgage rate for us, plus a cash contribution that more than paid for the year’s enableMe fees.

3 months on and we are smashing our financial goals. However, another unexpected benefit has been the effect on our marriage. We are now totally open and honest with each other about money, and the weekly planning sessions we have filling in our financial spreadsheet have made us even closer as we now have a common goal.

Thank you Katie – you’ll be seeing more of us!

Kay and John White, Takapuna

We have been clients of Enable Me since April 2015 after attending a seminar Enable Me conducted by Hannah McQueen.

We are a retired couple and needed an organised financial plan to assist us control our personal budget,  we were about to embark on a major renovation to our property.  The Enable Me programme was a perfect fit for us, it allowed us to separate our personal finances from our project finances.  We are now 6 months down the track and find this programme is working perfectly.

On a personal level we both found Katie to be extremely enthusiastic, supportive and very capable in understanding our situation.  She is very passionate in the work she does and has a genuine desire to help people achieve their financial targets.  We would have no hesitation in recommending Katie as a Personal Financial Trainer, through Enable Me looking for financial services.
