What Money Legacy Will You Leave Behind?
Here we are, at our last Money Mocha for this year, and this one’s a tender one. It’s about legacies…money legacies. Those we’ve inherited from others and those we’ll leave behind for others to inherit from us.
I often tell people that money touches every part of our lives. Every. Part. The way we relate to money even affects other people’s lives long after we’ll leave this Earth for the great journey beyond.
Not many people think about what money legacies they’ve picked up from their parents or other relatives that were around when we were growing up. And fewer people think about what money legacies they’ll leave for others to pick up.
But today…we’re going to put it on the table. Something deeper and more meaningful than what you’re probably used to thinking about when it comes to personal finance.
I’m going to tell you the story about the time my father had a stroke and I went to be with him in the hospital…and all that I learned in my time with him about money legacies.

How To Find Freedom In Your Deeper Money Patterns
I hope the last mocha brought you in touch with something in your relationship with money that’s a bit deeper than the typical “save 20% of what you earn and build up your 401k” kind of advice that tends to get attention in the personal finance world.
It’s not that I disagree with advice like that. Its just…there is SO MUCH more to creating a healthy relationship with money than the “spend less than you make” type of mainstream sound bites.
To be honest, while advice like that is helpful for things on the surface level (that tiny tip of the iceberg that sits above the water), the real work that creates lasting, profound transformations happens in the deeper levels of our psyche. Those quiet levels below the surface that are sometimes hard to get down to, and hard to put to words once you get down there.
That’s what today’s Money Mocha is about. Are you ready to do a little interior spelunking and see what might actually be going on under the surface of your money life?

Overcome Small Biz Cashflow Challenges + Pandemic Support
Today’s Money Mocha is a portion of a much longer conversation I had with Amy Bradbury, who is a profitability powerhouse, financial strategist, and QuickBooks guru who helps entrepreneurs with cash flow, systems, and business models.
Amy discusses the number one perspective shift she guides entrepreneurs through who are working on trying to figure out how much money their business needs to operate well enough to give them the level of lifestyle they need it to.
Her tools line right up with a foundational part of my Art of Money methodology but are applied in the realm of one’s business.

How to Re-Write Your Money Story
Money touches every part of our lives, in one way or another, every single day. And every day we go about our lives making money decisions both large and small, we’re most often running some very old scripts unconsciously in the background, like an app that runs quietly in the background of your laptop.
These scripts are powerful, and many of them were created unintentionally far in the blurry, faded past of our childhoods. Comments your mom made at the kitchen while paying bills. Things your dad did when he got an unexpected bonus from work right before Christmas. That trip your family took to DisneyLand where your parents were arguing about money outside of the hotel room where they thought you couldn’t hear.
These scripts are part of your money stories, and those stories are so powerful they can cause you to make money decisions to this very day. There’s good news about these stories though: they’re not written in stone.
You’re writing your own money stories every day, every week, every month, and every year. And here’s the key: you have the power to start writing new money stories, new scripts, that can then run in the background, guiding you to make better money choices. And those better choices can lead to less stress and grind, and more peace and calm.

How Do You Handle Big Unexpected Money Curveballs?
To start out this first Money Mocha, I have a quick question for you: what do you do when life throws a money curveball at you? Not a ball of money (which would be nice), but something super unexpected and not something you would want to happen.
Do you have a plan in place? Do you have any tools you can use as the financial stress meter starts to quickly spike into the red zone?
If you don’t have a toolbox and you don’t have a plan, don’t worry. Most people don’t. But today? I’m going to give you both a toolbox and a plan for how to use those tools in today’s Money Mocha.
