Educated in the school of hard knocks, Lesley’s many years of experience taught her how to live well on very little, so that she could accomplish her goals and dreams, and now she wants to teach you by telling you how she did it. You’ll be challenged to change your lifestyle to one that is affordable for the benefit of financial freedom.
At the age of nineteen, Lesley left her native New Zealand for England, where she took a job as a secretary on Fleet Street. After two years in England, Lesley returned home, married, and moved with her family to Australia. The family developed a kiwi farm in New Zealand and dabbled in Australian real estate, all experiences which served to give her a hands-on education in frugality and financial independence. An avid sportswoman, Lesley enjoys golf, skiing, tennis, and outrigger canoeing. Thanks to her passion for Harley-Davidson motorcycles, she has ridden across half of the United States and four Canadian provinces. She and her husband, a Canadian, split their time between Australia and the United States.
