What were you taught growing up about money?
Over the years I have worked with women who have stated:
- I am not good with finances or numbers
- I avoid looking at the bills because I feel overwhelmed
- I just pay the minimum balance on credit cards and hope one day I can get it paid off
- My Dad managed all the money in my family, but I watched my Mom struggle after his death in how to manage it.
- Women earn 21% less than men
- More women are becoming entrepreneurs
- Not all high schools provide basic finance classes, which means teenage girls graduate and do not know how to budget
- More women outlive men
How we work together on you owning your power around money:
- Explore your values
- Dive in and challenge the messages you received around money growing up
- Create goals and steps for feeling more confident around money
- (If you have children) Gain skills you want to pass along to them that aren’t taught in school
- Accountability check-ins
- Budgeting or Sassy Savings Plan
It may seem counterintuitive to spend money to be more confident in money management, yet when these beliefs stop you from feeling abundant it is time to get rid of those old stories. Your ‘scarcity’ beliefs or ‘your not enough’ thoughts about having money can impact not only your budget, but your relationships, your business, and more. Schedule your time with Nicole now to explore how we might work together.
Little bit about Nicole’s background
I have a bachelors degree in accounting and worked in Corporate America for over 10 years before changing careers into software implementations and business analyst. I then became a licensed marriage and family therapist and over the past decade have been working with women in breaking free from the shame and confusion about managing their budgets. To be clear, I am not a financial advisor or tax consult.
