Why I Love Marrickville And The Inner West


You might have seen in my latest Facebook post that Marsh Financial Advice has recently taken up new offices in the Urban CoWork in Marrickville. If you haven’t met me there yet here are the pictures below:

I am super excited about the move as I love Marrickville and the Inner West. Not only has Marrickville been my home for the last ten years, my financial advice business now has an official home here too. Marrickville, was where my husband and I chose to purchase our first home, where our daughter was born and goes to school, and where I choose to hang out on weekends.

There are many reasons why I think Marrickville and the Inner West is a great place to be a financial adviser and here are just a few:

Great cafes:

My business motto is the first financial advice meeting and coffee are on me and there are so many choices in the Inner West.  Ona Coffee and Paesanella are right next to my offices but I have other faves too – the Petty Cash café in Enmore, The Cornersmith or Warren and Holt in Marrickville, Sideways or The General in Dulwich Hill. The list is endless!

Fantastic restaurants:

I love trying all the amazing restaurants in the Inner West. Some of my favourites include:

  • The Pazar Food Collective in Canterbury – a favourite for mothers group dinners.
  • Bovine and Swine in Newtown – if you love meat like my husband, this place is for you!
  • The Henson in Marrickville – a wonderful child friendly pub with great food.
  • Sakae in Marrickville – great authentic Japanese food
  • Manoosh Pizza – so close to my house and so so good. It has Vegan options too!
  • Gelato Franco in Marrickville – amazing gelato made on site. A massive hit with the whole family.

My favourite places to shop:

I am passionate about shopping local, so the Inner West has some of my most favourite shops. I love the Hypmotive Hub for unique gifts by local artists. Earlier this year I purchased one of their Belinda Carter art works and put it on my study wall. It brightens my day every time I look at it. Urchin Books in Marrickville, is another fave for quirky gifts – my husband has a collection of Star Wars cufflinks from their store. Lush Arena in Marrickville is my favourite place for children’s clothes. Hanh has an amazing range of cool, stylish clothes that my daughter loves. And you can’t go past the wonderful Mia and her women’s clothing brand Ruby Raisin for beautiful handmade women’s dresses, with pockets!!!  For a relax and unwind the Buddha Bar in Newtown is amazing. Their massages are wonderful, and it is so peaceful there that I always walk away feeling rejuvenated.

A great community:

I love how the people of the Inner West are friendly and passionate about helping each other. That passion extends into how we like to invest and many of my clients have gone done the path of one of my passions, ethical and sustainable investing. We are a tight knit community that cares, and I love it.

So, I am excited to be providing financial advice to Marrickville and the Inner West. So if you want to meet me in my Marrickville offices just let me know. Otherwise I can travel to you. If you are not in Sydney, we can always meet on Skype. I look forward to working with you.


Kind regards,
