What They Say About Us

My wife Jacqui and I went to Mary to help us develop a strategy to achieve our personal financial goals and ambitions. After our first session we were hit by a major curve-ball: my company wanted me to relocate to Johannesburg. Mary was instrumental in helping us work through the stresses of planning for this relocation. Working with her gave us tremendous peace of mind. She has a keen eye for detail and is an incredible listener. Her process was thorough and easy to follow through with. Working with her gave us a safe place to have difficult conversations. We learnt a great deal about ourselves and our feelings around money in working with her. Even though we have now relocated to Johannesburg, we will continue to engage with Mary. She is an outstanding planner and coach and I would recommend her highly.

About a year ago I was looking to consult with a financial planner who would work with me to help me work with a balance of financial realities and the work I wanted to do/life I wanted to lead. I was referred to Mary J Fourie - and I absolutely found just what I was looking for/needed. She neither coddled me with 'just believe in your dreams and all will be ok' nor told me that my dreams were not financially possible and I was being ridiculous. She balanced both and helped me to see the full picture for myself and layout the choices and possibilities before me as we created tiered budgets, plans, priorities, etc.

While I'm not quite where I want to be yet, my consults with MJF were incredibly realistic, valuable then and continue to be. The plans and budgets increased my knowledge and awareness and they keep me on track, inform my choices, and have me finally moving in the direction I want to be moving. I'm making progress in a way that feels do-able - and the fact is, I am making progress - in an area that I floundered in for years.

This is all to say - I highly recommend availing yourself of her expertise!

During a time of enormous change and shifts in my life, returning back to South Africa after eight months of travel, I was extremely fortunate to be able to having the support and the guidance of Mary J Fourie.

I had some ideas about what it was that I wanted to do when I arrived back home, and she helped to coalesce these ideas and ground them in reality. She has the gift of being able to accurately feedback to you, a mirror, exactly what needs to be done to take these all important steps towards freedom and change.

Mary is amazing at holding a safe space, at guiding and mentoring, and allows you to be able to explore and grow through your own inner guidance and wisdom, giving little nudges on the way.

I’m very grateful to have had her expert hand help show me what I needed to do for my own highest growth. Thank you!

Thank you so much for today. I already have a slight sense of calm knowing that I have support and have started the very beginning of digging foundations. I'm so happy to be working with you. You are the calm in my storm. Thank you for holding space and your transparency, it’s so appreciated.
