Cheers to 10 years of Money Memoirs

written by Bari Tessler October 5, 2023

Dear Money Adventurer,

Ten years ago, I sent an invitation out into the world: join me and 33 brave souls for a month of money truth-telling, one money story at a time.

I called this experiment in collective money mindfulness “Money Memoirs.”

Since 2013, this intimate interview series has illuminated the money stories of folks from around the world and all walks of life.

In this interview mini-series, I talked to folks from all different backgrounds and walks of life — and asked them to share real stories about money. The good, the hard, and the triumphant.

Because we ALL have money wisdom and gems to share. And sometimes, just hearing someone open up lets our own healing begin.

What I couldn’t know then was that this whole-hearted exploration of our relationships with money would continue to unfold, evolve, and inspire over the next decade.

To bring our money stories out of the shadows and into the light.

To enrich and connect this dear community.

To bring more depth and intimacy to our money relationships than ever before.

To let you know that you are never alone in the ebbs and flows of this life and money journey.

Telling our money stories is one simple yet profoundly powerful way we can work together to change the greater narrative around wealth and money and worth.

The beauty of this truth is that sharing our money stories brings healing to ourselves, our closest relationships, our communities, and the world around us.

Because in sharing and witnessing our money stories, we are carving out space for more voices to be heard and valued, for more experiences to be recognized and honored.

With this vulnerable, meaningful work, we are forging a more compassionate future together.

It is my deep honor to be the facilitator of this incredible and inspiring collection of money stories.

As we mark this ten-year anniversary, I invite you to celebrate with me and enjoy the bravery these Money Memoirs have to offer us all.​

Psst: You’ll find all of these interviews under the Money Memoirs category on my blog – just scroll through and you’ll see a long catalog of these posts from over the years. Click on any one that resonates with you and you’ll see the whole post there. (Most are audio interviews but occasionally they are written.)

For another brave baby step forward in your relationship with money, reply to this email and tell me which Money Memoir resonates with you most in this chapter of your money story.

I can’t wait to hear from you.

Here’s to the next decade of writing and sharing our money stories with love and intention.

With my dearest wishes,
