Now, I deeply believe the key to having a healthy relationship with money is rooted in our own psychology. And by identifying our money stories and money beliefs that unconsciously impact how we think, act and feel towards money – we can start to gain control over our money relationships. When we understand our money relationships and what’s important, our entire money framework changes in a healthy manner where we can experience financial independence.  (maybe all from my conference)

I am on a mission to educate and empower people to live their happiest and most fulfilled lives. So that they don’t see six or eight or ten years pass by in a blink.

For me, financial literacy is not about becoming rich: it’s about living our most enriched lives.
