Hello, I’m Leisa and welcome to Sempre Financial!
A few years ago, my whole world came crashing down around me when my marriage broke down, leaving me to care full time for my two young boys and rapidly think about how I was going to support them moving forward.
My first thought after the initial shock was to go back to university and finish the degree I had quit 20 years earlier. With no real plan other than to get a degree to improve my employment and income prospects, I did just that. It was during my degree that I uncovered a desire to combine my strengths when it came to financial matters with my passion for helping others.
You see, budgeting and finance have always come naturally to me and I was perplexed how many people just didn’t seem to be able to grasp the basics. But upon closer reflection, I realised that our education system doesn’t really address this real-life problem. Seriously, what good is knowing Pythagora’s theorem for 80% of the population when it comes to getting and servicing a bank loan.
In 2016 I took a leap of faith and started Sempre Financial, specialising in providing a holistic approach to financial planning. But Fate had other ideas and before I could even settle into having my own financial planning practice, I found myself unofficially coaching women through their divorce after hours.
You see, I believe that FATE CREATES EVENTS to ensure we uncover our true life’s purpose and then use that purpose to assist others and live a happier, more fulfilling life.
When my marriage broke down, I was amicable from the beginning, but I could not have foreseen the unknown complications that were about to be imposed on me.
With no knowledge of what to expect, I suddenly found myself propelled into a minefield of difficult and legally confusing circumstances that I had absolutely no idea how to deal with. And this was before the sh*t really hit the fan and detoured my life for almost 5 years.
At the height of my own divorce, I had my entire financial stability wiped out and felt like I was stuck in a never-ending vortex of hell. Left feeling unsupported and disillusioned by the very systems that are supposed to help, I found myself becoming a passionate advocate for others, to ensure they didn’t have to go through the pain I had just experienced.
In 2017 when the Universe continued to send more and more women to my door seeking out help for their relationship breakdowns, I decided to acknowledge that this was part of my life’s purpose and the reason why I had to endure such a difficult divorce.
Now my passion is firmly entrenched in helping my clients achieve financial confidence when the walls of their relationship are falling down.
