How would earning 6 figures make you feel? Statistics show that only 25% of women who make this amount feel safe, secure and confident. Now I’m on a mission to boost this number. I’m one of the 9% who makes six figures, and I got to where I am while being a single parent and going through chemotherapy and an expensive divorce. For as long as I remember, I’ve been helping my clients increase their revenue. Even when women came to me to improve their relationship with themselves, they also increased their self-worth and net worth. And that’s why I’m here — to help you close the gap between the two.

    014: Creating a Financial Vision Board: Your Key to Mastering Wealth in 2024

    014: Creating a Financial Vision Board: Your Key to Mastering Wealth in 2024

    2024 represents a fresh perspective on finances and changing your relationship to money. This in turn, has the power to transform your relationship to life as well. With that said, there's something very potent to discuss that can guide you on this finance journey: Financial Vision Boards.
     
    The brain is  fascinating – it cannot differentiate between reality and non-reality - you know, like a “vision” or dream. 
     
    So we can game our own system by feeding our mind positive images, narratives, visions, intentions, and goals, to flood our unconscious mind and make it feel like it’s already our reality.
     
    Badass, right?
     
    A financial vision board takes this concept and gears it towards financial goals, pricing strategies, and intention setting. It highlights the profound power of positive imagery tied to financial goals and directs our unconscious mind to manifest those goals into reality.
     
    Think of it as programming your mind for success - but using a specific visual tool to get you there.
     
    Creating an annual vision board is one thing, and breaking it down per quarter is another game-changer. Having quarterly checkpoints engages your focus, offers a sense of achievement, and tracks your progress more closely. 
     
    These quarterly touchpoints have both your financial goals and feelings attached, allowing you to cultivate your own definition of success right from the start of the year.
     
    With your feelings-centric vision board in place, it's important to have a concrete revenue goal. Combining these two elements would require you to:
     
    Declare what your income or revenue goal is.
    Decide how many clients or customers you need.
    Divide your income target by the number of clients to determine your rate or price per client.
     
    This simple strategy provides a pathway to your financial goal while incorporating each client's value into the calculation.
     
    Financial Vision Boards are potent tools in mastering wealth. By picturing and strategizing our financial targets into quarterly goals, we can construct a path to financial freedom without the daunting intimidation of a huge, single end-of-year target. By using our mind's inability to differentiate reality from unreality, we populate our vision boards to help us achieve our financial dreams in manageable, realistic increments.
     
    It's time to dominate 2024 with our personal, tailor-made financial vision boards. I invite you to craft yours and witness the transformation it brings to your finances and your life. So buckle up because the journey to financial freedom is about to get real!

    [0:00] Intro
    [0:55] What it looks like for my brain in November
    [2:22 What is Financial Vision Boarding
    [8:27] Setting the feeling vs. setting goals

    013: So you got conned. Now what?

    013: So you got conned. Now what?

    Today, I have a bonus episode that I just couldn't keep to myself. I felt the urgency to share this story with you, in the hopes that it resonates and brings you comfort.
     
    Picture this: you've been conned, scammed, and left feeling utterly betrayed. It's a situation we don't often talk about, but trust me, you're not alone. I recently experienced a massive con myself, and when I opened up about it, I discovered that others had fallen victim to the same person. It got me thinking about the power of sharing our stories and supporting each other through tough times.
     
    Let's face it, scammers have a knack for taking advantage of our trust and vulnerability. Instead of blaming ourselves, let's reframe the narrative. We're not the problem here; we made a bad investment. And hey, who among us hasn't made a bad investment? We're all human, after all.
     
    I hired this guy, a fellow coach, with high hopes and a significant investment. He seemed like the real deal, with impressive testimonials from celebrities and all. But as time went on, I began to realize that he couldn't deliver on his promises. The PR team he boasted about turned out to be non-existent, and the whole experience felt like a massive letdown.
     
    The breaking point came when I mustered up the courage to reach out to one of his celebrity clients, only to discover that the testimonial he used was completely fake. Can you imagine the audacity? It was a realization that hit me like a ton of bricks. All those red flags and doubts I had pushed aside suddenly became glaringly obvious.
     
    Through commiserating with others who had worked with him, I learned that I wasn't alone. We were all victims of his gaslighting, lack of integrity, and evasive behavior. It's disheartening to know that people like him can get away with scamming others, leaving us feeling ashamed and vulnerable.
     
    But here's the thing - we're not alone. If you've been conned or scammed before, I want you to know that I see you, I feel you, and I'm here for you. Don't let shame consume you; share your story, find solace in community, and together, let's stand against these scammers.
     
    By building a community of support, we can protect ourselves and others from falling into their traps. And for those of you who haven't been conned, be vigilant, trust your gut, and don't hesitate to share any resources or podcasts that delve into white-collar crimes and scams.
     
    We talk about:
    [0:00] Intro
    [1:01] How scammers have a ‘get out of jail free’ card
    [3:44] The love of true crime in the sense of scammers
    [6:12] My experience getting conned by a coach
    [10:33] Walking away from a conned investment
    [14:19] The power in sharing this story

    012: The Psychology of Spending: How do THEY Afford It?

    012: The Psychology of Spending: How do THEY Afford It?

    We’re talking about overspending. Cringing? I know! That’s why we’re specifically talking about how do people afford to overspend?
     
    Overspending is a behavior pattern that many of us fall into, especially during the holidays. We're bombarded with pressure, manipulation, guilt, and shame, and we try to compensate for these feelings by making extravagant purchases. It's like a quick fix to make ourselves feel better in the moment.
     
    But here's the thing: when we can consciously interrupt this pattern and become aware of our unconscious behavior, we're already one step closer to changing our relationship with money. By shining a light on our spending habits, we give ourselves the opportunity to make more aligned choices and find a sense of balance.
     
    In this podcast episode, we're going to explore the question that often pops up in our minds: how the heck do they afford it? You know, those people who seem to have it all - the luxurious vacations, fancy cars, and designer clothes. It's natural to wonder how they manage to afford these things on what we perceive to be an average income.
     
    This, paired with the societal pressure to keep up with appearances and our desire to fit in, creates this addictive nature of overspending. The rush of adrenaline we feel when we make those impulsive purchases is a chemical reaction in our brain that can sometimes become an addiction.
     
    But let's not stop at just wondering about other people's spending habits. Instead, let's explore why we overspend to begin with. Personal reflection is key here. 
     
    We all have our own money stories, and understanding the emotional wounds and unmet needs that drive our spending can lead to transformation and healing.
     
    Have you ever stopped to think about the emotional impact of your first money memory? How did it shape your relationship with money? For me, money became a secret to be hidden, and spending it made me feel powerful and in control. But I also realized that I was searching for safety, security, and comfort in my spending habits. It was a way to fill a void.
     
    And here's where the beauty lies: once we become aware of the underlying emotional needs driving our overspending, we can start to make conscious choices. Interrupting the automatic behavior and asking ourselves why we want to make a purchase can help us break free from the cycle. It's not about judging ourselves, but rather showing ourselves compassion and grace as we work towards healthier financial habits.
     
    Thank you for joining me today, and until next time, keep loving money and embracing the change it brings.
     
    We talk about:
    [0:00] Intro
    [9:24] How overspending can feel like an addiction 
    [11:05] The stats around overspending 
    [13:31] What is overspending
    [14:52] My money story and background with money
    [20:21] The role unconscious beliefs play in overspending 
    [24:24] Healing the emotional side of money
    [26:29] How online shopping triggers our sense of "going without resources"
    [27:54] Self-reflecting on your money story

    011: Is There Really Such a Thing as ‘Good’ Debt?

    011: Is There Really Such a Thing as ‘Good’ Debt?

    Question: Do we think shaming people about going into debt is going to help anyone?
    …that’s NO for me. 🙅‍♀️
    In this week’s podcast episode we’re diving into a topic that weighs heavy on a lot of us - especially right now - debt.
    Having debt on its own can feel intimidating.
    Add on how much it costs to live, how few women make $100K+, then the public message of shaming debt as a whole, and it actually makes me angry.
    Women in particular are shamed for carrying debt - even when that “debt” is being used as investment in their Self or business.
    So this week on Loving Money, we’re changing that stigma - period!
    Not all debt is bad…
    In fact, a lot of the debt we accrue is necessary for modern life
    Cars and homes are necessities…and I know I’m not the only one uses a credit card just to buy groceries and fill up the gas tank!
    #gottagetthosepoints
    At the end of the day we all have to learn the difference between good and “bad” debt, and how we can make more money to live a lifestyle that isn’t rooted in just trying to survive.
    Women are conditioned from girlhood to play it safe and not take risks - and that carries on into how we make decisions for our future, our dreams, and the vision we have for our lives.
    “Playing it safe” is a story we tell ourselves that becomes a limiting belief that can hold us back from reaching our own potential - and success.
    We all deserve ease and joy in our lives, the kind that comes from financial security - it’s entirely possible for you too!
    One way to get out (and stay out) of debt is to more money (duh) 💰
    But making more money comes down to knowing one important thing…
    Your worth 👸
    This week on the podcast I’m sharing my (cough, strong) feelings on debt; if you’re feeling financial stuck, you definitely need to check it out if you’re feeling stuck financially.
    I am on a mission to get at least a million more dollars into the hands of entrepreneurial women - every year - which is a driving force behind my business.
    It’s YOUR turn to be empowered to take your finances back into your hands, to have control over your life, and make more money.
    You deserve to feel enough 💸
    Let’s talk about debt and how we can bring empowerment back into your wallet 🙌
    Start right now.
    Listen to my hot take on income, debt, and how we can make the shift to ease in episode 11 of the Loving Money podcast.
    Welcome to a fresh perspective on finances.
    We talk about:
    [0:00] Intro
    [01:50] Pricing strategy video training
    [4:35] Understanding our conditioning as females
    [9:00] How do you get ahead if you're scared of taking risks
    [9:45] Reframing the difference between "good" and "bad" debt
    [20:25] The shades of debt
    [22:35] What you can do if you're struggling
    [23:45] How this is important for entrepreneurs

    010: Shattering your Invisible Ceiling Salary

    010: Shattering your Invisible Ceiling Salary

    Have you heard of the invisible glass ceiling when it comes to your salary?
     
    One of the big premises behind the work that I do, and certainly on this podcast, is that we are closing the gap between your self worth and your net worth.
     
    So how does this relate to what we’re talking about today? The invisible ceiling salary is a capped amount of money that you feel you are deserving of making. And I know this feeling all too well, because I also had money stories and a capped ceiling I needed to break through.
     
    We’re covering what this ceiling is, how to find it, and then how to shatter through it – which I know you want to learn how to do, because you deserve to have everything you want and more.
     
    We talk about:
    [0:00] Intro
    [1:40] What is the invisible ceiling salary number?
    [2:20] The only Loving Money course you need
    [3:30] Stepping out of my comfort zone and went to a party
    [8:25] Callie's money story
    [12:50] The illusion of financial safety
    [15:10] My own relationship with money
    [17:10] Smashing through the invisible ceiling 
    [18:40] Breaking down the invisible ceiling salary
    [22:20] Finding your glass ceiling 
    [26:10] Let’s do this work together
