Nicole Heales, Financial Adviser and Mortgage Broker at Nicole Heales Financial shares how she’s living the life of her dreams, her passion for travel and advice to her younger self.
- Why financial advice? I couldn’t find an adviser who spoke to me in a language I understood, so I studied and became the adviser I was looking for. Being an independent woman, I need to make the most of my time and money so I can live the life of my dreams, and I want to extend the opportunity for other women to receive professional, unbiased advice that is in their best interest, always.
- Who inspires you?
Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela, Maya Angelou, Malala Yousafzai. Anyone who is kind and strong and stands for equality for all humans on this planet.3. What advice would you give to your younger self?
Don’t waste your time, energy and money on people and things that don’t matter. I tell all my clients the same thing.4. Your most recent ‘high-five’ moment?
The past two years I’ve been included as a finalist with some amazing people in this profession. I have loved collaborating and learning from the best of the best.

5. Early or late tech adopter?
I can’t even spell IT but I know what I like and I’m not afraid to buy it. I’m a cusp Gen X/Baby Boomer so it’s all relative in dinosaur years….I adopt after the bugs are ironed out, sit on implementation for too long but get there in the end.
6. Favourite holiday destination?
Buenos Aires is my new favourite city and Argentina my new favourite country. But for a stunning beach holiday with cool vibes you cannot go past Tulum, Mexico.
7. Where will you be in ten years?
Roving retiree teaching English part time in Spain, Portugal and South America. Muy Bien!
