Celebrating Women and Money

Dear Money Adventurer,

Regardless of who you are, where you come from, or what you believe in, money influences your personal choices, opportunities, even your communities.

In my work as a Financial Therapist, I explore the world of money, bringing more mindful attention to the personal, micro side of money, the relationship we have with money, the narratives we write for ourselves, and how those stories impact even our closest relationships.

I also bring loving curiosity to the macro side of money, where we speak to the bigger picture, to social systems, how we navigate them, and how we can shift them alongside our own stories.

For these grand-scale perspectives, I usually go to fellow financial experts who specialize in this work, so that I can guide the interview as they generously share their knowledge and experiences. And I can learn more about the macro side of money, as well.

As we celebrate Women’s History Month, I want to recognize some of the phenomenal women I have interviewed who are showing up to change the old narrative and create a more equitable, accessible, inclusive world of money for us all.

Here are some of my favorite women-led interviews covering everything from the wealth gap and social justice investing, to pricing strategies, overcoming underearning, personal growth, self-worth, and single motherhood.

Spotlight on Jacquette Timmons: Financial Behaviorist, Author, and Speaker talks about women in business, pricing, and earning potential. Interview: Pricing Your Services with Strategy + Mindset Tips.

Spotlight on Vicki Robin: Author, Social Innovator, and Speaker talks about her book, “Your Money or Your Life” and how she’s updating her teachings for new economic realities. Interview: Why money pioneer Vicki Robin’s classic work is more relevant than ever.

I hope you’ll take some time to listen in to these women’s stories, to really hear the wisdom they have to share, and to celebrate the work they are doing, the way they are showing up as women – and for women – so that we can all have a voice and a seat at the table.

May we celebrate every step, big or small, that leads to a more accessible, more inclusive, more compassionate world of money.
