When it came to money, there was no particular instruction from my parents.
“Go to school, work hard and get a good job,” is all I was told. I questioned what the point was of doing all of this work and what it all added up to.
The story we tell ourselves about our journey with money starts with what our parents instilled in us from an early age. The curiosity of how money worked, why it is so important and how it is tied to our wellbeing brought me to where I am today. Becoming a financial wellness coach and running a small company has taught me that our value can not be in money alone.
My passion for discussing money came from networking and only seeing a few women in the room. I so desperately wanted to change that narrative. I had little funds for a start-up but I had social media so I started there. Having open and honest conversations online is always a good place to begin.
