Financial and Career Smarts Seminar

Hannah McQueen and the team at enableMe have helped thousands of Kiwis get ahead and get mortgage-free fast over the past decade.

They’re now on a mission to help the next generation tackle the tougher financial conditions today’s teens face, by equipping them with the financial and career smarts they need to succeed.  

Hannah is hosting a must-see seminar at TrustPower Baypark Arena on Wednesday the 5th of June where she will detail her research into the challenges facing teens, explain the solution she’s designed, and share tools and strategies parents and students can apply themselves.
