Money Memoirs: Jacquette Timmons

written by Bari Tessler January 16, 2017


bt_logo_seal_01Most of us don’t talk about money, except with our closest friends. But we ALL have money stories. Tough times we survived. Triumphs and gifts. Practical wisdom and soul-deep insights. And when we share our money stories with one another, openly and lovingly? Well, magic happens. We un-shame. We spread confidence and peace of mind and a whole lotta love. Honesty is just the beginning … Please curl up with a cuppa and enjoy this special, intimate interview series: Money Memoirs.

When I dreamed up this Money Memoirs 2017 series, I knew I wanted to include Jacquette Timmons.

Not only is Jacquette one of our favorite Guest Teachers in The Art of Money, she’s got a rich, multi-layered understanding of money.

As a Financial Behaviorist, Jacquette helps people go beneath the dollars and cents — straight to the underlying behaviors and beliefs creating their financial success (or keeping them from it).

And here’s what I love: Jacquette speaks openly about money in a delightful, playful way. As you’ll hear in this interview, we cover some delicate territory, including race/ethnicity, lineage, debt, and judgments — but we also laugh. A lot.

Open your mind and open your heart to this delightful interview and hear Jacquette talk about money in her personal life and business, including:

  • The lessons her jazz singer mother taught her about money
  • The inner shift (and outer change) she made this year to open up her earning potential
  • The money judgment she let go of (and got compassionate about) after starting her own business
  • Her growing edge in 2017: constantly asking herself this one question (which is so wonderful, I’m definitely borrowing it!).

Want more honesty and empowerment in your money life in 2017? My year-long program, The Art of Money, is now open!




We only start this year-long journey once a year. And we’re celebrating with this potent Money Memoirs series. Because these are the kinds of conversations we have behind-the-doors in The Art of Money.

Rare. Courageous. Vulnerable. Emotional. Practical. Soulful. And simply life-changing.

Shifting your relationship to money doesn’t happen overnight (though huge “ah-ha moments” certainly help!). Mostly, it’s a journey of baby steps. Inner shifts and outer actions. Learning the language of money. Setting up your support team. Going through layer after layer of your inherited money beliefs and practices. Fine-tuning and forgiving and visioning. Having that first, awkward Money Date with your sweetie … and keeping at it, ‘till they’re easeful and maybe even sexy. (YUP!)

That’s why I created The Art of Money: a year-long money school.

If 2017 is your year to look money in the eye and finally bring the mindfulness, compassion, and smarts to it you’ve been craving … you’ll find so much support in The Art of Money.

Amazing Guest Teachers sharing their wisdom on everything from communication to Enneagram to business models to gender roles to student loans to somatic practices.

{And, YES! Jacquette Timmons is one of our special Guest Teachers!}

You get everything I’ve got. My entire resource library. My thoughtful, holistic, 3-phase framework — doled out in a can-do rhythm. A global community to cheer you on. My team of amazing TA’s.

.. And you get me: monthly group coaching calls, weekly Love Notes, and so much more.

Money is part of our lives, whether we want it to be, or not. But you can choose to tend to this “garden” in your life. To cut back the weeds and plant new seeds of mindfulness and empowerment. To water it often with learning and loving attention.

And the next thing you know? Money isn’t a sore spot, anymore. It’s an area of your life you can rely on to feel more like yourself. More connected to your values. A reliable friend who’s actually helping you make the most of this one, precious life.

This is what The Art of Money can help you do.

The year-long journey begins February 1, and our doors are now open for just a short time.
