Bio

Love of Music, of Sunsets and Sea; A liking for the same kind of people; Political opinions that are not radically divergent; A similar stance as we look at the stars and think of the marvellous strangeness of the Universe – These are what build a marriage (relationships). And it is never to be taken for granted.

– Madeleine L’Engle [Two-Part Invention: The Story of a Marriage] 1988

A Financial Professional with several qualifications, however, the Psychological impact and recovery from past experiences is her passion. Being Outspoken: she is a Proud Survivor, a Mother of 3 Home-schooled boys, describe as a Super-Supportive Wife, the ‘Best-Friend’ who people confesses their most inner troubles to, an Activist for the Prevention and Recovery from Abuse, a Home-based Entrepreneur… Believing that “Dynamic Living” can only be achieved by using our God-given equipment, add to that the Principles of Success multiplied with our own Proper Self-Image.

Yvonne E. Venter – Louw is fiercely committed to guiding, coaching and mentoring those

  • who are seeking answers,
  • who are open-minded,
  • willing to learn,
  • willing to communicate
  • and have a commitment to their own achievement …

Providing solutions to old questions and secrets through, new out-the-box thinking, the alternative to the norm advice and guided implementation into their own lives.

In return, these individual(s) will achieve what Wealth, Meaning and Freedom – as describe by their own values, dreams and goals are – into their own lives.

this is how we work
this is how we work

If you are looking for a proven professional who can guide you to address your financial education, your relationships with others, as well as most inner-self; and through the complete process strategically evolve to achieve natural balance holistically… you’ve come to the right place. With 19 years’  experience in the Financial Industry and at the same time, 20 years’ experience [and research] in personal prevention and recovery from abuse; working with amazing clients with similar worries and concerns; and guiding them to achieve remarkable success, her mission and commitment is to give her best and most honest self, focusing on serving others at the highest level and assisting as many people as she possibly can to achieve their own highest level of Wealth, Meaning and Freedom at the same time.

Her path to becoming a coach, mentor and advisor became clear at an early age – She always had this passion, no …it’s more a deep heart throbbing need to help others who needed it most. As a child, she thought it would be fulfilled by becoming a Trauma doctor / Paramedic, but… with being forced into a financial academic high school career … she held on to that dream … deep heart throbbing … to where today she can honestly state that her years of experience, the qualifications she obtained, years of researching for her own benefit and perfectionistic record keeping of all her mistakes [and what she has learned from them], will provide solutions to those who are finding themselves looking for answers and guidance.

What lights her up about her work is: ” knowing that any and all financial decisions there is a psychological background that influences clients decision; once a client is coached and mentored through these, they are finally enabled to reach their own highest level of wealth, meaning and freedom.”

What sets her apart from other services providers: “it is my creative approach, innovative thinking, analysing nature of challenging the exciting ways of doing things. Combining the physical aspects of financial advice, with the psychological impact of past experience of an individual client while uplifting their spirituality, provides clients with a lasting, firm new foundation to build their future further on.”
