Word of the Week: Money
Andrew and I used to make about the same salaries (which I was proud of because he had an MBA and I didn’t have an advanced degree at the time). This meant we could pretty much save and spend as we pleased, never having to worry too much about what the other person was doing. This also meant neither of us had to really examine our money stories because things were more or less okay.

This will be a safe space to explore your insecurities with money, connect with others who are also desiring a different relationship with money, and walk away feeling empowered with tools, strategies, and a greater understanding of how to move through the world with more joy and ease. It starts with money. Our root chakra. Our sense of security.
If now is the time to roll up your sleeves and get real with your money story, I would love to be your guide. It’s been two years since I’ve offered an online class like this. It’s that important to me.
The world needs more women like you to stand in their power.
Ask Yourself: How would you describe your relationship with money? Do you love it? Do you hate it? Do you feel shame around it? Do you feel in flow about it?
Weekly Mantra: Money is empowering.
