A local mother and son have combined their talents and experiences to launch a new website aimed at helping struggling families achieve financial freedom.

Geraldine and David Carroll from Kilkenny wanted to give hard-pressed families a bit of a lift facing into another tough new year. They came up with the idea for Winter Wisdom (www.winterwisdom.com) late last year, and launched it last week.

The website is a personal finance and success blog, which strives to deliver practical advice and a supportive community for those who are struggling in life.

“We’ve endured and witnessed a lot of hardship throughout our lives, particularly over the last few years with what’s happened to the economy,” says Geraldine.

“Winter Wisdom is our way of trying to help others achieve happiness and success.”

The site already has a number of helpful articles on topics such as dealing with debt, stress and what to do when faced with losing your home. There are also a number of useful tools, resources and tutorials for helping you manage your finances.

“We’re not financial experts, but we’ve lost jobs, lost homes, struggled with finances and yet always managed to keep our heads above water,” says David.

“We share our experience on the blog in the form of practical advice and lessons learned.”
