Peta-Kay King

Entrepreneur, Financial Coach, Podcaster & Blogger.

Welcome to the Pearls and Perils, my name is Peta-Kay, but you can call me your Finance P.T  I started this platform to allow me to connect with people who want to stop surviving in their Finances and living a life that does not reflect their idea of success.

My mission is to Educate & Empower others to start THRIVING and meeting their finance goals through my holistic, practical and personal approach to Financial coaching

A bit about me:

I  was born in Jamaica but moved to the UK when I was 7 years old. My life in the UK has not been an easy one, but all the challenges and setbacks I have faced have made me the person I am today.


I worked in the health industry for 10 years starting off as an Administrator and progressed into management roles. I've gained a lot of finance and business management skills which I have applied to my personal finances and this has transformed the way in which I manage my money and has allowed me to build a strong financial foundation for myself, of which I will be sharing tips on.


I use to have terrible money management skills, but in mid 2019  I decided to stop living in the 'pay day cycle'.  Despite earning a good salary I would still hemorrhage through my salary within a few days of getting paid! As I started to run my personal finances as I would a business, I started to see results and developed better money management skills and a new sense of discipline.


This inspired me to start my financial coaching service; I knew that finances and money management is an area that a lot of people struggle in and I wanted to combine my skills and passion for finances with a service that would help people to stop surviving and start thriving in their finances.


I'm married to my amazing husband Theo, I got married in  2018 it's been an amazing journey filled with highs and lows but I wouldn't have it any other way. My faith in God is what inspires me and is the source of my inner strength without this I would not have been able to overcome the depression I battled with for many years. 

I have a passion for helping people to pursue their potential which motivated me to start my Pearls and Perils Podcast. I love to try new things, experience food from different cultures, travelling to new places one of my goals is to visit 50 countries by the time I'm 50.
