We Weren’t There

I came across an article in The Guardian the other day:

Trust (fund) Me: How to Live Mortgage Free is a dream built on sand.

It was a review of Channel 4’s programme: How to Live Mortgage Free with Sarah Beeny.

 

Fiona Sturges argues that people need rich parents to get mortgage-free.

(And most people in the comments section agreed).

 

BUT CARLA AND I WERE IN THAT SHOW!

 

So the question I asked was:

 

“WHERE WERE WE?”

 

We weren’t mentioned anywhere in the article.

 

  • My parents were working class and gave no money toward our house
  • We both had modest incomes (I started on £35,000 and Carla even less)
  • Our house wasn’t cheap: it’s a 3 bed in a London property hotspot

 

Why did Fiona and others leave us out of the debate?

You can read our story in my book, on Amazon:

See us in ‘How to Live Mortgage Free’, on Netflix (S1:E1)
