Let's Build Your Empire

Building wealth is not complicated.

You just need to understand the rules of the game.

I can help.

I built a seven-figure net worth in my thirties.

I also had:

- No six figure salary

- No inheritance

- No meme stocks 

- No investment properties

- No debt

In fact, I built it while travelling full-time for 10 years, running a small business on my laptop.


During my short career as a Chartered Accountant, I got a front-row seat to how wealthy people earned, spent and invested money. I learned wealth had little to do with how much you earned. It was all about how good you were at making that money work for you.

I made it a mission to learn from the best investors in the world - thousands of hours reading their books, studying their companies, listening to their interviews, and cloning their skills and habits.

I quickly learned you don't need a $200k salary or a huge real estate portfolio to become a millionaire.

Whether you earn $50k or $500k per year, you can grow your net worth to a million by understanding a few very simple rules about money.


I'm Bren

In my circle of friends, I've always been "the money guy". I topped my accounting class in high school, did a BCom at university, and eventually became a Chartered Accountant, specialising in tax accounting for small businesses in NZ. 

My life has changed a lot since then. I am no longer a CA - I left the profession at the age of 24 to travel, write and invest full-time. Through disciplined investing and basic money skills, I'm now financially retired at 37, but I love the game too much to quit. I travel most of the year, but whichever country I'm in, the first thing I do each morning is check the markets, and my idea of a perfect day is sitting in a cafe, crunching numbers, analysing companies and reading stock reports. I get as excited about finding a gem in the stock market as a foodie does trying a new restaurant for brunch!

I started moneybren.com to help other Kiwis take control of their money and start living a financially free life. Money shouldn't be stressful, it should be exciting, and a tool to help you live the life you want! I'm here to help you build something you can be proud of.

A Partner Focused On You

Here's what working with me will look like:

Month 1

  • We'll break down your finances in detail on our initial deep-dive call to see exactly what we're working with.
  • We'll create a crystal-clear picture of where your money comes from and where it goes, your assets and debts, and identify any quick wins.
  • Whether you want to invest in exciting tech stocks or low-risk bank deposits, I'll explain all your options in ways you can understand, and we'll create a gameplan you'll be excited about.
  • We'll create a portfolio of assets (or optimise your existing portfolio) that is both smart and safe. We'll have a follow up call mid-month for any questions and to make sure everything is moving in the right direction.

Month 2

  • We'll have an extended 1-2 hour call each month (longer if necessary!) to reassess your plan. There are always ways to improve - we'll find them!
  • You can only invest in what you understand, so as your financial knowledge improves, a wider range of opportunities become available. I'll explain them to you.
  • We'll optimise every part of your finances, whether it's being more tax efficient, renegotiating your salary, improving a side income or simple budgeting improvements. I'll generate ideas so you always have options to explore and things to build.
  • We'll have a follow-up call mid month. I'll keep you accountable and help you overcome any roadblocks.

Months 3&4

  • As you find momentum, I'll help you think bigger and your vision will grow. There's always more to aspire to and more exciting things to achieve.
  • The ultimate goal is to get you off your training wheels and building on your own.
  • After 4 months, you should have all the knowledge and understanding to steer your own empire and make educated decisions.
  • We'll make sure you have a clear gameplan on how to continue on your own, and some bigger goals for you to aim towards.
  • You can always stay on the coaching program for longer until you're ready to fly solo!

Deep-Dive Session

  • A 2-hour intense session on breaking down all components of your financial life. 
  • Whether you're looking to become debt-free or get to early retirement, we'll establish a clear action plan to get you there.
  • No more stressing about where your money goes or what to do with it - you'll learn clear strategies and habits to start seeing your wealth grow.
  • A follow-up call after 2 weeks to assess your progress and discuss any questions/improvements.
  • Deep-dives are ideal for those wanting to manage their own finances but need guidance starting on the right foot, or if you want an expert pair of eyes to assess your current situation and suggest improvements. They're also perfect for those who aren’t sure if financial coaching is for them and want a test run.



4 Months

  • Includes a deep-dive session in Month 1 and extended calls in Months 2-4 to continually improve and optimise.
  • A focus on developing healthy habits and keeping you consistent and accountable - the secret to long-term growth.
  • After your first few calls, the vision becomes clearer. We'll discuss potential improvements and opportunities as your financial knowledge grows. You will find momentum and become more determined. There are always greater and more exciting goals that suddenly become possible - I will help you achieve them.
  • The end goal is to give you the confidence to manage and grow your assets independently. Three months is usually sufficient to gain a robust understanding, but you are welcome and encouraged to continue with coaching as long as you need. You can also pause and restart down the line whenever needed as your portfolio grows/changes!

Frequently asked questions

coaching faq

Is Financial Coaching Worth It?

Money is the #1 stressor for most people and affects almost every aspect of our lives, yet we are never taught good finance skills in school. Most people could significantly improve their wealth and finances with some basic changes that anyone can do. I think everyone who is unsatisfied with their financial situation should get financial coaching.

Why Are You The Right Financial Coach For Me?

Along with the various fancy pieces of paper I have saying I'm a financial "expert", and my previous career as a tax and business advisor, I just love teaching and helping people level up. I'm all about small wins, consistency, and keeping things smart and simple. Whether you're a beginner or already have a million dollar portfolio, my talent is breaking things down into their basic parts and finding ways to grow. If that sounds like something you'll enjoy, we'll do great work together. 

Can You Help File My Taxes?

While I'm not your accountant and cannot give you official tax/legal advice, I can offer my opinion and make suggestions. I have a lot of experience in NZ tax and will help you understand your options and walk you through the IRD guidance. However, any tax filing still needs to be made by you or your accountant. 

Can You Tell Me What To Invest In?

I cannot give you official financial advice (e.g. buy this stock!) but I can give my opinion and share ideas (e.g. this is a stock that I own, and I like it because xyz...). My job is to explain all your options to you and help you understand the risks/benefits, and to give you someone to bounce ideas off. Ultimately all investment decisions need to be made by you. 

Can I Do A Deep Dive First, And Decide To Upgrade To Monthly Afterwards?

Of course! If after your initial deep-dive call you want to upgrade to the monthly option, you can simply update your payment and we'll schedule your next call.
