About Mad About Money App
Hey, I'm Maddy
Im the founder of Mad About Money App,
I have had a bit of a crazy journey. I was in £40,000 of debt in my 20's , I was addicted to spending money with un- diagnosed ADHD.
After moving house to try and avoid my debts and having a nasty run in with a bailiff i knew I only had two options, going bankrupt or paying it off.
I came up with a plan to pay it off, I managed it in under 6 years, and came out with a 999 credit rating, debt free and a completely different person.
When I got made redundant from my corporate job I decided to set up a business, I had no idea what I was doing, I spent money on the wrong things, I had no idea how to grow an audience but I taught myself.
At all points in my money journey I have felt alone, getting out of debt was tough on my own and I just wished I had people on my journey with me that I could ask when I got stuck.
Setting up and growing a business was lonely, I just wanted some guidance but it was so expensive getting a coach.
So the idea for Mad About Money was born- A place where people could talk openly about money, life , mental health and business ,experience their journey with other people cheering them on.
Social media is addictive and people are leaving all the time due to the constant social pressures, people just want to be social, get support and help with their problems , they don't always want to grow an audience.
So i'm solving a problem, helping people to access support and education without having to grow a following , battle an algorithm or get sold to all the time.
