Dear Money Adventurer,
In exactly one week, I will be celebrating the sixth anniversary of my first book, “The Art of Money: A Life-Changing Guide to Financial Happiness,” being published.
But today, in beautiful synchronicity, is the day that my second book is making its official debut.
“The Art of Money Workbook: A Three-Step Plan to Transform Your Relationship with Money” hits bookstore shelves for the first time today, and I am absolutely thrilled to finally share it with you!
Part love letter and part money journey road map, The Art of Money Workbook was born out of a desire to offer anyone who is done with the traditional tough love approach a more compassionate way to work with money.
I wrote it to make this work more accessible, to guide you through the three phases of Money Healing, Money Practices, and Money Maps, to share tools to empower your growth, and body-based practices to ground you in awareness, intention, and compassion.
I wrote it to support, encourage, and inspire you as you explore your relationship with money. I wrote it to create a safe place for you to learn to honor your money story, your money emotions, and your ever-unfolding money journey.
I wrote it because I love journaling questions. I’ve been creating journaling questions since my first tiny workshop of 10 people in my living room when I lived in an apple orchard. So, this is a perfect opportunity to sit with the workbook and explore your money terrain in a safe space.
Wherever you are in your money journey – whether you’ve read my first book, taken The Art of Money program, or even if you’re new to my work and this gentle path – The Art of Money Workbook will help you bring a new level of healing, awareness, and understanding to your relationship with money.
As my publisher puts it:
The first-of-its-kind workbook that uses three easy steps to repair your relationship with money, from financial therapist Bari Tessler.
Few things in life can feel as stressful and daunting as money and finances—get ready for that to change. The Art of Money Workbook offers an empowering new framework to create sustainable change and strengthen your relationship with money.
Tessler offers a program that integrates practical financial tools with supportive somatic practices to bring more compassion, honesty, and awareness to your relationship with money. Her three-phase process—Money Healing, Money Practices, and Money Maps—will help you make choices that reflect your values, become aware of spending patterns, and create new financial habits. This workbook offers self-reflective exercises and tools that will encourage you to write your own money memoir, set regular money dates (with yourself and/or your partner), and plan for the future.”
Or, in the words of my dear colleagues:
With compassion and mastery, Bari Tessler invites you to not only investigate your ‘money story’ but to feel the impact money has on all aspects of your life. The Art of Money Workbook provides tools and practices to illuminate what you’ve relegated to the dark, guiding you to an empowered and meaningful relationship with money—and with yourself.” —Nancy Levin, author of Worthy: Boost Your Self-Worth to Grow Your Net Worth
A gentle, beautifully written, and practical guide for everyone who wants to become more intentional, values-aligned, and awake in their relationship with money.” —Tara Mohr, author of Playing Big
In The Art of Money Workbook, Bari Tessler invites on a money journey as a path of self-discovery. By guiding us to look deeply at our relationship to money, she offers us the keys to more power, more freedom, and more happiness—minus the shame and dogma.” —Kimberly Johnson, author of Call of the Wild and The Fourth Trimester Journal
Bari Tessler is gifted at helping people connect with their money stories and heal their relationship with money. The Art of Money is one of the first money books I recommend to our audience, and the guidance Bari provides throughout The Art of Money Workbook will help so many people dig deeper into their money relationship, discover how to interact with their money in a positive way, and align their money decisions with their true goals. No matter where you are in your money journey, we can all build a better relationship with our finances—and Bari can help you do it!” —Chelsea Brennan, founder of Smart Money Mamas
If you’re ready to begin a more intimate, more authentic, and compassionate chapter in your money story, order your copy of The Art of Money Workbook and allow me to show you the way. And if someone in your life could use some loving wisdom and gentle guidance in their money life, I hope you’ll consider sending them a copy of their own to let them know that there is a healthier, more sustainable, more meaningful way to engage with money.
The creation of this workbook was a heart-full labor of love, and I am forever thankful for your willingness to not only witness this journey of mine, but to encourage me in this work, and invite me to be a part of your own money adventure. It is truly my joy, honor, and inspiration.
That is why I wrote The Art of Money Workbook.
From my heart to your hands,
