It occurs to me that becoming involved in your finances and learning how to approach money matters can be a transformative experience. It is with this premise in mind that I have decided to launch a new project, which will empower you by building your confidence in all matters financial. You will be surprised to learn that your money breakthroughs will have less to do with math and more to do with emotion.
The Confidence project is designed for everyone, but I will be paying particular attention to women because I still see a general lack of money confidence with so many women. From executives who can balance a corporate budget but fear negotiating for the best car deal, to the stay at home mom who doesn’t realize how her fear over losing money is – well losing her money.
This project starts a conversation but it also will do more. It will ask you to take action. Unless you are involved and do the work (which by the way takes only 5-15 min per assignment) you will not get the maximum benefit.
Developing confidence with money is not punitive- it is fun and puts you in the drivers seat.
My aim will be to deal with the emotions behind money issues and really delve into the personal reasons for your financial attitudes and approaches. But most of all I want to provide a place where women can come and share their stories, seek advice or just find a space where they have the opportunity to vent, laugh at their faux pas and learn how to take the next step.
I believe, that a platform for sharing in this way is currently missing for women, and I want to be the one to bring it to you all. However, I cannot expect you to share your stories with me, without first sharing mine with you. So, coming soon I’ll be sharing regular insights into my financial foundations, experiences, approaches, mistakes and triumphs in an effort to relate to you all, and in doing so establish a common ground. I hope reading these regular posts will encourage you to welcome me into your life as your Money Confidante.
