Engaging audiences of all ages on financial independence and entrepreneurship

Lacey knocks the socks off audiences with her enthusiasm, humour and insight. From conference keynotes to classrooms of teenagers, her storytelling educates, inspires and motivates, leaving an indelible mark on memories – and lives.

Meet Lacey Filipich

Lacey started her entrepreneurial journey with a hair wrap stall at 10 years old. Today, she’s the co-founder and director of two successful education businesses; Money School and Maker Kids Club.

Between hair wraps and start-ups, Lacey graduated as valedictorian from the University of Queensland with an Honours degree in Chemical Engineering. She moved to Australia’s ‘wild west’ to begin her career in mining, rising quickly through the ranks on site. A health scare and her sister’s suicide opened her eyes to the world beyond work, leading her to redesign her life.

Lacey started investing at 19 and now earns a passive income from her assets. She considers herself ‘time rich’: able to choose if, when, where, how, on what and with whom she works. Helping others learn the skills they need to achieve financial independence is how she chooses to spend her time.

Client love

Elaine Dowd

“You spoke at my school when I was in Grade 12 in 2016. I went home and told my mum ‘My life changed today’. Two years on, I want to thank you for your words. Now I am in my second year of a Commerce/IT degree with over $15,000 in shares and I am so proud of the investments I have made, not to mention travelling to Europe twice since finishing high school. I love watching my money make its own money. It is so satisfying to watch dividends come in for not working at all. I would not have thought that was possible two years ago. Thank you.”
