I believe that any woman—regardless of her income, age, or marital status—has the power to experience a future of fulfillment, independence, and true financial security and freedom based on her values.  Every woman is capable of taking charge of her financial future.

Financial wellness doesn’t start by creating a budget. It’s not about the numbers. In fact, the numbers are the easy part. Financial wellbeing starts with your money story. We all have one. Your money story determines if you live your life in comfort or poverty.


Own Your Money Story

“The single most powerful asset we all have is our mind. If it is trained well, it can create enormous wealth seemingly instantaneously” –
Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad Poor Dad.

Money is only an idea. If you want more of it in your life, you have to change your thinking. You can create positive and empowering money stories right now and pass them down to your children. The change starts with you!

"Desire - the first step toward riches." - Napoleon Hill.

What do you want from your money? We all want to feel safe and secure. We want to have more time and freedom to be with our family and to do the things that we love. We want choices in career and education for us and our children. We want control. We want to give back. And, of course, we want nice stuff.


Define Your Money Goals

personal finance

Money loves clarity, so define what wealth means to you. To me, authentic wealth is not necessarily about having lots of money. It’s about having a happy, balanced life with secure financial situation which grows stronger every day. It is having all aspects of my financial life in alignment with my values, aspirations, and purpose. 

I suggest finding your why. Why do you need your money to grow? Making it personally meaningful will help you overcome any difficulties and will keep you working towards achieving your dreams. 

Net worth is a true measure of your financial security. You grow your net worth when your assets go up and your liabilities go down. An asset is something that puts money in your bank account. A liability - takes the money out of it. If you want to be rich, you should start buying assets such as stocks, bonds, or income-generating real estate.  

Grow Your Net Worth

"Rich people acquire assets. The poor and middle class acquire liabilities that they think are assets."
Robert Kiyosaki

"Financial peace isn't the acquisition of stuff. It's learning to live on less than you make, so you can give money back and have money to invest. You can't win until you do this." Dave Ramsey.

Most women are reasonably confident in their knowledge of day-to-day financial matters, such as obtaining a mortgage or buying life insurance. However, we lack confidence and knowledge in achieving our longer-term financial goals, such as saving and investing for retirement.



Personal Finance Elements

Taking care of your financial future is one of the highest forms of self-love you can practice. Money is power. But what is more powerful is financial education. Money comes and goes, but if you have the education about how money works, you gain power over it and can begin building wealth. 

 

Before we learn to invest to build wealth, we have to learn how to save. We do that by paying ourselves first and by aligning our spending with our values.   

When it comes to money, your long-term success is mostly determined by your behavior around saving, spending and investing. I will show you how to set up your personal finance system that manages your money automatically. 

Automate Your Finances

If you want to build long-term wealth, make everything that’s financially important in your life automatic.  

This system acknowledges our normal human behavior – we are busy raising kids, we get bored or distracted, we lose our motivation – and uses technology to make sure that we’re still growing our wealth. 

Do the work now and let your system passively do the right things for you forever. If this is the only thing you implement, you’ll still be ahead of 90% of people.
