My 3 favorite ways to bring more creativity to your money work

Dear Money Adventurer,

Back before I started my money journey, I thought money work was boring. Spending money was fun, but the traditional methods for working with money felt stale and uninspiring. Budgeting felt stifling and restrictive, so I didn’t do it.

Then I received my first student loan bill, and I had a shocking realization: I had never been taught how to work with money.

I have a Master’s degree in Somatic Psychology. I spent years learning to talk about life and love, food and sex, spirituality, death, and grief – but never about money. I didn’t know how to manage my own money or how I felt about it, never mind my business finances. I certainly didn’t know how to talk to my clients about money.

How was I supposed to help creativepreneurs and couples work through their money challenges and emotions when I didn’t know how to do it myself?

I knew that if I wanted to have a healthier relationship with money, I had to find a way to infuse my money work with creativity, self-expression, and personal meaning. I needed to find my own way of working with money that felt empowering and engaging.

More than twenty years and thousands of Art of Money students later, I know I’m not alone in feeling that way.

So, today, I want to offer you a little creative empowerment. A few weeks ago, I joined Dr.Kim Corson and her co-host Dacia Clay on The Dr.KimCast to talk about my money journey and how bringing creativity to your money work can help you reframe your money story.

Listen here to discover:

  • My 3 favorite ways to bring more meaning and creativity to your money work
  • What questions to ask to help you navigate curveballs in life and money
  • The realization that allowed me to shift my money identity and claim my truth
  • Why some folks find my work “woo” – and why I don’t
  • Why Kim and Dacia called me “the Tan France of money”
  • The money “Aha!” moments that stood out at the end of our conversation

​If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed or uninspired by the traditional approach to finance, or longed to bring more meaning and self-expression to your relationship with money, this interview is for you.

Tune in here for a dose of money wisdom and creativity that will inspire and encourage you in your money work no matter where you are in your money journey.

Because money doesn’t have to be boring or restrictive. Your relationship with money can look and feel fun and playful, calm and meditative, or anything in between. No dry, dusty budget required.

May you find a spark of inspiration here that empowers you to bring more of yourself and your values to your money journey.

With my dearest wishes,
