25 Powerful Affirmations for Financial Wellness and Emotional Wealth

Uncategorized Apr 01, 2024

Why Affirmations:

Affirmations are words of emotional support and encouragement toward a desired outcome. I like thinking of them as a prayer of transformation involving action or movement rather than an identity like “I am strong.”

Why are seven-word affirmations so powerful? Seven words keep your affirming thought clear and concise, easy to memorize. In numerology, the number seven is believed to be insightful, intuitive, truthful, introspective, intellectual, and wise, all important attributes to accompany your wealth building journey.

Words matter. Being mindful of the words you use to speak to yourself matters. Positivity is essential in an affirmation so is ownership, using I or my.

I encourage you to try each of these thoughts on like a sweater. How does it feel? Like the buttery softness of cashmere or the rough coarseness of burlap? Where do you feel the words inside your body? The stomach, heart, throat or head are typical places to feel thoughts within you.

The Art of Mindful Money Management: Cultivating Presence with Your Money

The Art of Mindful Money Management: Cultivating Presence with Your Money

In our fast-paced world, it's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of daily life, often overlooking one crucial aspect — our relationship with money. In a recent class I taught about the importance of being mindful and present with your finances we explored, shedding light on the transformative power of incorporating mindfulness into our money management practices. Debt often keeps us stuck in the past, paying for decisions we made months or years prior. Financial worry often comes from feeling uncertain about the future. A financial plan can provide you directional guidance. There is relief when you have a plan even if that plan needs a few adjustments along the way. Clearing debt and creating a financial plan allows us to be fully present with our money.

Mindful money management goes beyond budgeting and saving; it's about developing a conscious and...

Cultivating Clean Generosity: A Guide to Giving Without Strings Attached

Cultivating Clean Generosity: A Guide to Giving Without Strings Attached

In the season of gratitude and giving, it's crucial to navigate the fine line between generosity and unintentional relationship issues. The concept of clean generosity is about giving without imposing expectations or creating a manual on how the gift should be received. This delicate balance ensures that both the giver and the receiver experience the true essence of generosity without the burden of strings attached.

The Giving Manual: Lessons from Personal Experience

A poignant example of the giving manual surfaced in my own. I come from a farming family. When my grandfather passed in 1994 he left his 30-acre farm to his four children with strict instructions to never sell. Nine years later when my father passed, my sister and I inherited his quarter share. After a devastating flood, a change in market conditions and no family member able to farm the land, the farm became a burden, financially and emotionally....

4 Reasons Your Sales Manager Make a Horrible Coach

Uncategorized Aug 02, 2023

4 Reasons Your Sales Manager Make a Horrible Coach...and it's not their fault.

Like athletes, salespeople are experiencing the benefits of one-one, individualized coaching. When employees are heard, attitudes improve, efficiencies gain, and results soar, goals accomplished. Just about every influencer, personal growth author or high performing individual talks about and/or attributes their success to the coaching they received. There is no doubt coaching performance works, on and off the field.

Coaching requires holding space, diving into limiting beliefs and exploring growth opportunities, encouraging shifts in tactics and mindset.

Is this how your manager shows up to your regular one-one meetings? I didn’t think so. From my experience managers are often harried and/or distracted, ill-equipped to hold space.

And then there are these four other issues:

  1. Compensation – In 99% of companies, your manager’s performance review and compensation are tied to your results....

Eliminating financial indecision

Uncategorized Jul 05, 2023

As a Financial Life Coach, I am often surprised how challenging it is for women to verbalize what they want from their money. Is it because we have so many options? Fifty years ago, our options and paths were fairly linear: go to school, get a job, work for a few years, get married, have a couple kids, quit job to maintain the home and family unit. Today, there is no clear path. We have so many options to explore.  Here are a few possible options:

  • Maybe I will start an online business that doesn’t require a degree?
  • Maybe I will take a gap year to travel at any point in my path?
  • Maybe I will have children without a partner?

One thing for certain is all choices require money.

Helping my clients discover “what is” rather than “what if” has proven a helpful exercise. When we explore what is true today, we have a starting point for “what could be” true in the future.

Here are two areas where you can discover what is true today:

How to feel better about your financial future

Uncategorized Jun 28, 2023

In order to manage your money mindfully, awareness is the first step.  With my style of financial coaching for women awareness comes in two forms: your numbers and your mindset. I teach proven financial practices along with how to manage your mind around money: earning it, spending it and saving it.

So often clients are fearful about addressing their numbers but when we rip the bandage off to expose the wound (one of my client’s words) it feels so much better. We bring air and light to suffering and darkness. The stories and numbers we make up in our mind are often worse than reality.

“We suffer more in our imagination than reality.” - Seneca

One of my clients described her financial worry as a committee meeting that takes place in her mind when she’s trying to fall asleep. The committee members are made up of all the people who feel they should have a “say” in her personal finances. Have you ever experienced an unwanted committee meeting? I...
