My Latest Musings:

  • Dear Money Adventurer, Spring is in the air and I’ll be celebrating by teaching my first small-group Financial Therapy workshop in years. As in, at the last event I offered outside of my year-long Art of Money program, I was six months pregnant and wore a sign with an arrow pointing to my belly that read, “Noah inside.” It’s hard to believe that was 13 years ago now, but it’s true. So, when Revel reached out and asked if I…

You embark on a new direction, follow the rhythm with a sway of your hips, and, in the end, find yourself back where you started. Please know that it is totally normal and okay if this happens to you. We’ve all been there. In fact, I recently found myself doing the Cha Cha with the Art of Money. So, when I…
