Your Money And You

Online event

**In order to register for this free event, please register here: https://ga.co/3nFky0d About This Event How rewarding our relationship with money is, is limited only by how we feel about it, and how those feelings make our lives harder or easier. Money has a huge impact on all aspects of our lives, yet we spend so little time growing and nourishing our relationship with it, operating instead from a view of money as a burden, a cause of anxiety and uncertainty, and sometimes avoiding talking about it altogether. This leads to recurring debt, lack of financial security, strained relationships, professional stagnancy, less joy, and poor self-worth. But, you have the opportunity to experience money as a partner in your journey. By facing discomfort, gaining a better understanding of your money past, and learning the skills to cultivate a positive connection with your money, you will become empowered to move forward with confidence. Takeaways What You’ll Take Away: You’ll walk away with tools you can use to nourish your money space, develop healthy money habits, and with a better understanding of what money means to you. Why it Matters: Money is not black and white or just numbers on a page. It encompasses a multitude of emotions, our self-worth, and greatly impacts our ability to dream and achieve. By creating a consistent and intentional approach with our money, we build the financial empowerment that will allow us to reach higher, give more, and live life on our own terms. **In order to register for this free event, please register here: https://ga.co/3nFky0d
