The Missing Piece In Your Professional Training.

written by Bari Tessler March 6, 2024

Hello, my dear colleague,

Money brings up so many emotions, right?

But you already knew that.

Every day you see your client’s emotions around money shape their relationships, their beliefs about money, and the life decisions they make.

In fact, a study done by Nobel Prize-winning psychologist Daniel Kahneman showed that we make financial decisions based 90% on emotion and only 10% on logic. (That’s pretty wild, right?)

You see it in your own life, too.

It’s in moments like your intimate partner’s somewhat hidden spending and justification of purchases.

Or in the kaleidoscope of butterflies that flutter through your stomach every time you think about investing money to grow your business.

Or when even your most outgoing, abundantly resourced client gets quiet and fidgety whenever the topic of money comes up.

I see it too.

In the 23 years of helping over 5,000 people with their money challenges, one thing has become abundantly clear:

Very few people get a holistic financial education that includes the psychological and emotional side of money.

That is just plain crazy to me.

And here’s the thing: the psychological side of financial skills is essential to the work you do with your clients.

That’s why a big focus of the Art of Money Mentor program is about using tools from somatic psychology to help your clients learn to navigate all their money emotions.

From shame to anger to fear to excitement to joy and everything in between.

You’ll learn how to recognize how each emotion feels in your body, and more importantly, how to stay grounded and make better money decisions, rather than letting the emotions make the decisions for you.

You’ll learn a process to go back in time and unearth the unconscious beliefs about money you inherited from your family, and release those that no longer serve you.

You’ll learn how to bring compassion and understanding in how you talk about money with others, and you’ll see first hand how to help your clients do the same.

The truth is, if your work involves helping clients in a space where money issues arise, the help you give them will be far more effective if you know how to handle the psychological and emotional side of money.

In order to help your clients do that, you first need to be able to do it yourself.

And that, right there, is why I created The Art of Money Mentor Program.​

“I’ve been studying and teaching financial literacy for over 25 years. I have a master’s in personal financial planning. Yet, I felt like an incomplete imposter because I wasn’t walking my talk. Ouch! I found that magical missing zenith where money meets emotion in Bari Tessler’s Art of Money Mentorship Program.

I’m grateful for the life-evolutionary experience in this program, for Bari’s personal guidance, and for the seismic shift in my money-life that this program is making.

Now I can help others! Worth every dime!!”

All the best,
