A conversation with Phoebe Blamey from Clover Financial
Where are you right now?
Right now I am at my office in Hawthorn – Melbourne.
Tea or coffee?
Tell us a bit about what you do at Clover Financial?
My core business was mortgage broking and since by HEH in November 2019 I have moved into writing the Happy Money Journey and putting together an online course to help people make good money decisions!
Why do you do what you do?
I almost feel like I have to! I talk about money every day in all sorts of ways. I notice that if people feel in control of money life seems to flow a lot better and they get to live life on their terms – if people are in a shame spiral around money they will play small. I want to take the shame and lack of control away.
What rituals do you have in place to help you get the most out of your day?
I like an early start – I go to the gym most mornings at 6am, come back, walk the dogs and listen to a podcast (love the OC podcast, Socialette, Game Changers). I also walk to work most days.
How do you get into flow?
It depends what I am doing – if I am recording video I do a little dance. If I need serious inspiration I watch a bit of Beyonce – Homecoming.
I also section things off – so once I finish a task and need to get into the next one I take a small break, walk outside or focus on my breath for a minute.
What is your favourite thing about running your business?
The variety of things I do in a day, and my happy honeys – the people who have come to me for help and are happy with the results.
What book, podcast & song are you jamming to at the moment?
Podcast: Socialette because I am close to my own first launch. We have constant words in my office over music choice (my staff love a disney musical) – my choice is Pixies and Concrete Blonde at the moment.
Book: I am making everyone read Atomic Habits! I am also obsessing over at the moment is The Mountain is You – amazing!
If you could have dinner with 3 people (dead or alive), who would they be & why?
This changes for me all the time – today I think Queen Elizabeth I she fought hard for her place in the world, ruled an empire and did not conform to any expectations (eg getting married). Madonna – as a performer she has reinvented herself over decades. Maybe Simone DeBouvoir for starting an intellectual movement of women
What has been your biggest takeaway from High-End Hustlers so far?
Pru did this really good meditation about chickens on our last day – I often remember to stick to one chicken at a time!! Also the fabulous business connections.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
Living by the sea in rural Victoria – as always surrounded with friends and family. I would like my on line business to be successfully changing lives, and helping women take control of financial well being.
Best piece of business advice you have been given?
Where focus goes energy flows.
