Juliette left school in the provincial town of Timaru at age sixteen to start her first job within a national organisation.
Within two years Juliette had packed her bags, left home and headed for the bright lights of Auckland to take up a role in the company's head office.
Due to Juliette's determination, commitment to excellence and achievement of performance criteria she was quickly promoted through the company's ranks, initially from product buyer to marketing assistant and then from sales representative to branch manager.
Juliette's passion to see the world meant that nine years after starting her first job she headed overseas for a 'working holiday'. She spent time in London in a variety of temporary jobs, before working out a year at Outward Bound in Scotland.
Back in New Zealand, Juliette spent a couple of years in Christchurch within the automotive industry before signing up for the Police.
Policing led her to life in the Capital. Four memorable years on, Constable Lister handed in her duty belt when introduced to the Financial Minds.
Like most people Juliette's habits saw her paying not a great deal of attention to her financial matters. Although not in debt she had not accumulated or achieved any real significance in respect to her financial goals - In fact Juliette did not have any financial goals (other than ensuring she did not get declined at Eftpos!).
Since joining the Financial Minds and under the watchful eye of her financial mentor Juliette has seen dramatic change in her financial position and attitudes.
Throughout 2003 & 2004, Juliette purchased four investment properties, built up a substantial superannuation plan and for the first time has a savings account & cash reserves. Juliette continues to develop her investment portfolio and money management skills & knowledge.
Juliette would love to see others achieve the same 'control' over their finances and create for themselves a life of stress free living and abundance in the areas of health, wealth and personal relationships.
