Katie Donegan

Katie Donegan is not your average financial whizz; she's a world record-breaker and a trailblazer in promoting financial literacy and gender equality in sports. As the co-founder of Rebel Finance School, Katie has transformed the lives of 20,000+ individuals in 43 countries by offering free courses that demystify personal finance and empower people to take control of their economic destiny.

Her passion for equality is evident in her remarkable achievement of setting a Guinness World Record for the highest altitude soccer match ever played, a feat accomplished with Equal Playing Field to advocate for women's equality in sports. Katie's commitment to this cause is further highlighted in two documentaries that chronicle her journey and the broader struggle for equality in athletics.

Embracing the principles of the Financial Independence movement, Katie bid farewell to the corporate world at the tender age of 35, a testament to her financial acumen and disciplined approach to money management. This "retirement" has allowed her to dedicate her time to helping others achieve financial freedom, travel the globe, and pursue her passion for calisthenics.

Alan Donegan

Alan Donegan is co-founder of the award-winning Rebel Business School (RBS), Rebel Finance School (RFS) and the Rebel Entrepreneur podcast. He became financial independent at 40 years old and now uses his time to help people from all walks of life to start their own businesses, take control of their finances and avoid debt.

Rebel's mission is borne out of Alan’s own personal experiences where he was forced to fight in the courts to prevent the loss of his family home.

Those experiences have driven him to develop the Rebel Start-Up Methodology that accelerates the process of launching a business without debt. RBS's mission is to change the way entrepreneurship and has educated over 20,000 people in 11 different countries and no one has ever paid for their support. Rebel raises sponsorship so they can give away the best education for free to the people that need it the most.

In 2021, Rebel won a Queen’s Award for promoting opportunity. Its work has also been backed by organisations including Google, Henley Business School, Westminster City Council and the Department for Work and Pensions.

When Alan isn't working to help people around the world he can be found at the gym, a nice café with a coffee writing or building Lego
