Crew interested in bettering their financial future can join the online crew workshop held by Luxury Learning on August 23, 2022.

They’ll teach you how to:

  • Make a baseline budget
  • Discover how much of an emergency fund you need
  • Understand the mental aspect behind earning money

“Money Management is incredibly important and can change a person’s life! If you want to avoid the golden handcuffs or you are planning for the future, this workshop is for you,” says Tia Taylor, owner of Luxury Learning. The event costs $60 USD per person and sign up closes on August 21.

The company, which launched in May 2020, teaches crew about financial literacy. The founder, who believes this is important to every crewmember, whatever their rank or age, says she started Luxury Learning to fill a gap. “After years of crew telling me about their fun experiences — but simultaneous financial concerns — I decided to start a company to solve an important industry problem,” she says. Though she herself has never been crew, Taylor has spent the last five years working in yacht management in Fort Lauderdale.

While completing her global luxury management master’s degree in Antibes, France, the now 28-year-old founder fell in love with the industry. “Previously, I worked for a well-known superyacht management company and now I am the Yacht Accounts Manager for newly established NauticALL. Over the years, I have worked with numerous superyacht owners, captains, and crewmembers on annual budgets, monthly crew payroll, and paying all the bills,” she says.

“Other companies want crewmembers to just open savings or investment accounts so they can make commission. My company provides education and knowledge tailored to crew so they can learn and quickly take care of their own finances. I also try to put an energetic twist on the topic,” says Taylor. Her services are team trainings (held on board), crew workshops, and one-on-one sessions.
