Increase your Financial Confidence: Lean Into Your Financial Life

Feeling stuck with your money? Do you feel a kind of “fogginess” when dealing with the practicalities of your money? Are you embarrassed, confused, anxious, overwhelmed, or paralyzed by how much or how little money you have? If you answer yes to any of these questions, this workshop could be helpful for you.

In a society where it is often easier to discuss sex than money, many of us have hidden issues about our personal finances. Because money is still a taboo subject, many women seem to feel that if they don’t acknowledge or talk about it, it will sort itself out magically or someone else will come to the rescue and deal with it for them.

This workshop offers you a unique opportunity to be with a small group of women—to exchange ideas, share insights, hopefully let go of a little emotional baggage around money, and have some fun doing it.

You will have the chance to:
o Identify your attitudes and habits about money
o Revise beliefs and attitudes that limit your success
o Create new possibilities
