Money, money, money, money. We all want it, love it, hate it when we don’t have it and we sure have our own wicked versions of our money story – good or bad. For some it can be a frightening nightmare what money does to their person. For others it is just a fun little possession that feeds their life. Either way, it’s your money story that rules so much of your life and your happiness. But what if that story didn’t rule your world? What if your money story changed? What would happen for the better, for your life?

She believes that our money stories are just stories that we all have control over to enrich our lives and make them better. If you are looking to change your relationship to money or just need a boost of money wisdom, then come out of that closet with us today and let’s get that money, money, money relationship back on track.
