I’m Marnita Oppermann and I’m a Mindful Money Coach. My own challenges with money led me on a search that gifted me with the opportunity to learn from and work with some of the top money mindset teachers both in South Africa and the USA.
Now, after radically transforming my own relationship with money, I’m excited to share the wisdom, strategies, tools and resources with you.
More than a business, this is my heartfelt passion. I am committed to helping you have a harmonious relationship with money and shift from a mind set of fear and scarcity to one of confidence and abundance.
Together, we can produce measurable results!
I have a degree in Business Administration, and a CIMA Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting, and over 10 years’ experience as accountant both internationally and locally.
However, despite being a successful accountant, I found myself drowning in debt in early 2015. Resorting to even more debt, after dealing with expenses and repayments, left me spinning in a vicious spiral with nothing to live on.
I felt hopeless, anxious and desperate. I wanted a better life for myself – one of abundance and harmony, and one where I could leave a legacy for others, and not be a liability. After attending money mind set courses, reading and soul searching, I discovered this profound truth:
My financial troubles had nothing to do with my accounting and math abilities and everything to do with my unhealthy relationship with money.
I learned to identify the origins of my thought patterns which influenced my self-worth, beliefs and attitudes towards money – all contributing to behaviours around my personal finances. I started using simple tools that helped me to manage my finances and think differently about what financial freedom would mean for me.
It was eye-opening and life-altering! I managed not only to transform my relationship with money, I also managed to lose over 20kgs – a true body-mind-spirit transformation.
But it didn’t stop there. This new journey I was on, was so exciting and liberating, that I knew I had to share it with others too.
At the end of 2016, I qualified as a Certified Money Coach (CMC)® through the Money Coaching Institute in California. I have been working with individuals, couples and groups since then and am thrilled to be able to share what I’ve learned.
I know first-hand, that what seems daunting and overwhelming when attempted alone, is possible when we get guidance. We all need a sounding board, someone to listen and who cares to help us understand our thoughts, beliefs and behaviours and assist us to finally do the things we want to do rather than just talk about them.
I am just that, to my clients. A sounding board, an accountability partner, someone who guides them to reach a new level of fulfilment in their lives.
