A delectable mishmosh of book-y goodness for you!

Dear Community,

It’s that moment juuuust before the kiss, your belly all a-flutter.

That heart-pounding drumroll, so insanely joyful you can’t stand it.

The pregnant glow: so sweetly, soulfully lustrous.

Sometimes, the moment right before something amazing? Is stupendously wonderful, all on its own.

In 7 short days, The Art of Money book officially hits the shelves! (Click here to pre-order your copy.)

Art of Money Book

We’re teaching him good money tools early! Here’s my sweet son Noah, reading a galley copy of my book. We’re actually teaching him to read for 30 minutes and then get electronics for 30 minutes. He picked out this book first because they are everywhere in the house! (He already knows that “the elephant in the room” is money!)

This final drumroll is truly exquisite: chock-full of great stuff for you to enjoy!

Because … I’m not the only one excited outta my gourd for this book. There’s been an outpouring of goodies for you from my wonderful, generous, creative community:

Street Team Love!

Awhile back, I asked my dear community if anyone would be excited to help share the word about my upcoming Art of Money book … and over 150 people raised their hands and said, “heck yes!”

Here’s some of the incredible videos, stories, reflections, big takeaways, and love they sent our way after reading advance copies of the book.

Pain-free earning?? With Sally Poulsen

“The Art of Money already has me digging deep into my money patterns. Most shocking to me was that by examining my money story, I realized that I have spent my entire life believing that there is no painless way to earn money, that earning was inherently a transaction of giving up your power for a paycheque. This has led to years of burnout, misery, and a tendency to rush through every assignment and job because the idea of being myself and working were antithetical. For the first time ever, I’m slowing down and really being present for my work and it’s incredible. The wildest part? I’m only on CHAPTER FOUR. Thank you so much, Bari!

Fave book quotes from Vanessa Teklenburg

“I’ve only just started reading The Art of Money, but here are some stand-out quotes that I’d like to share with you:

Many of us grow up learning that, when it comes to money, thou shalt keep thy head firmly in the sand. See no money. Hear no money. Speak no money.

… how painful it was to have no idea how I could create a comfortable, sustainable living and do deeply meaningful and creative work.

Learning the language of money is crazy-empowering.

(Shame) is a universal human experience, able to cut us all to the quick, whether we’re six or ninety-six.

One of the heaviest pieces of money shame I carried was the belief that I shouldn’t try (or even want) to earn a comfortable income: that would be too materialistic, shallow, and un-spiritual.

Many of us have mindfulness practices in other areas of life – on the yoga mat, in conversation with our sweetie, or while eating – yet neglect to bring this same awareness to money.
