Hey!! I'm Atiya or The Savvy Accountant and I am here to help you Live Financially Savvy!
I have a passion for living financially savvy and helping others do the same. My passion wasn't always like this however. I graduated from undergrad and then went on to grad school and after struggling some, I was able to finish top 5 in my class before writing my Chartered Accountancy exam and passing that. I got a job at a Big 4 firm and then went on to work for 1 of my country's leading financial institutions. I was living the great life - raised by a single mother with 5 siblings and to now making great money and working a great job... BUT it wasn't all peaches and cream. I was living in a secret shame. I was doing such a stellar job at work but couldn't get control of my spending or over spending if I was honest.
I had to get a real grip on my relationship with my money. There was no reason I could be making a good salary and then having nothing to show for it.
I decided to change. After I did this, I set 3 financials goals for myself on Jan 2nd, 2017. I said I would raise my credit score by 100 points before Dec 31st. I said that I would begin investing and I would create accounts for my kids and save for them. I was able to achieve all of my financial goals by October!!
As the eldest of 5, I take my role very seriously, and as such, I want to help you on your journey to Live Financially Savvy. I want you to consider me your Savvy Big Sister... big sisters want you to win! We don't judge you and you can trust us because your best interest is our biggest concern.
To me, living financially savvy means that you are in control of your finances and you are in position to leave generational wealth for your children and/or loved ones.
I basically got tired of not managing my money in a healthy way and decided to change my mindset and I am here to help you do the same.
I became the master of budgeting and created a Healthy Money Menu and set up SMART financial goals to help me on my journey to financial freedom.
I hope that you will let me help you on your journey!
