At CommonCents we care about your wellbeing. Since 2001 we've watched hundreds of Australians come to us anxious about money and their financial future. We've seen it wreak havoc on their health, their families and ultimately their happiness. Today our mission is simple: we want to improve your relationship with money and be a positive influence on family life. Our 'Know, Change, Do' philosophy is holistic: we get to 'know' you and your families dreams, support you to identify what must 'change' and help you to 'do' what's needed to stop worrying about money - and start living a richer life.
