With over two decades of experience in the wealth creation space, Vanessa Stoykov is a finance and money expert with a passion for storytelling.
Vanessa is the Founder of No More Practice Education, a leading on-line financial education hub, which was acquired by ASX listed company OneVue in April 2018. She is also the Founder and Chief Executive of production house evolution media group, creator of the Channel Nine’s Learn from the Money Masters: The Investment Series, and author of ‘The Breakfast Club for 40-Somethings’ - a fable that offers a new and entertaining way to change people’s long-term financial behaviours published by global publisher Wiley.
Vanessa began her journey in the business world at the age of 26, establishing Evolution Media Group. Starting with only $14,000, the company has grown into a multimillion corporation.
Vanessa believes that to truly grow long term wealth, people need to UNLEARN everything they think they know about money. She is passionate about educating Australians through entertainment on how to grow wealth to make the pension irrelevant in their lives. As such, she has been dedicated to helping professionals and financial advisors learn how to grow wealth by focussing on ‘educating the educators’ with new techniques to assist them in better communicating and serving the wider community.
Vanessa is a regular contributor of Morningstar and Body+Soul, often appears on Channel Nine’s Today Show, and has recently been featured in numerous publications including News.com.au, Daily Telegraph, CEO Magazine and Money Magazine.
At the age of 44 Vanessa is even more committed than ever to telling stories that matter, and to helping others better their lives.
Outside of the corporate space, Vanessa enjoys spending time with her husband and three sons, and visiting her hometown of Gunnedah, where she first realised her passion for storytelling by hiding a torch in her bedroom and reading under the doona well after bedtime.
Vanessa tailors each of her keynote presentations to suit the interests and needs of the specific audience, however the themes include:
- Unlearning money – why you need to forget what you know to grow your wealth
- Why reinvention is the new retirement
- How to reinvent your life in your 40’s and beyond
