About Us


Master Your Money Now is a financial planning and education company with a passion for helping everyday people take control of their finances from the comfort for their own home.


Founded in July 2018 by Chris Carlin and based in Geelong, we regularly speak to everyday Australians both individually and in group settings, teaching and empowering people with practical financial skills we should have been taught in school. In short, we make money easy to understand again.
