Mary J Fourie ICF PCC | FPI RFP™
Professional Financial Coach, Mentor & Coach Trainer
Over the past two decades, I have spent time working in the retail (clothing), online gaming, financial services and coaching sectors. In 2017 I founded an FSP, My Journey 2 Freedom, with the goal to prove the concept of Coached Lifestyle Financial Planning as an invoiced fee-for-service to clients.
I am known for helping others answer the question of "How can I live a purposeful and meaningful life AND be financially free?" My approach in helping others is to work with the whole-person incorporating mind, body, and soul. My gift is to inspire change-making; helping these individuals, like you, shift the way you earn and spend your money to align with what feels most purposeful and meaningful to you.
In building my toolbox of experience, qualifications and skills I have completed two NQF5 Higher Certificate’s in Financial Planning (Milpark Business School ) as well as a Leadership & Coach Training qualification from Star Leadership (Pty) Ltd. I am a Registered Financial Practitioner™ with the Financial Planning Institute Southern Africa (FPI), am credentialed with the International Coach Federation (ICF) as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and am also an accredited iEQ9 Enneagram Individual & Team Practitioner.
I want to change the world and believe I can do that by helping people get better at earning and spending their money in line with living a values driven, purposeful and meaningful life. This purpose extends to training, mentoring and coaching Financial Advisors to do the same with their own clients. As a result of this passion I have committed myself to growing Professional Financial Coaching in South Africa. In support of this vision I have volunteered as part of both ICF South Africa and COMENSA.
I believe in being led by my values of freedom created by connection, contribution and response-ability. I believe that the journey to living a fulfilling and financially free life is accessible to all when approached with mindfulness and intention. It is this philosophy that filters through all my work, whether I am working directly with private clients or training Advisors, Financial Planners or Professional Financial Coaches to do the same.
