Putting Lipstick on a Pig Isn’t Very Effective!

Transformation vs. change — if you look these words up in the dictionary, you’ll actually get somewhat similar definitions, however as I explore in my own life and work more and more with clients, I’m finding that there is a very important difference in these words. Transformation (noun): A complete or major change in someone’s […]

Shifting Away from Scarcity

Every once in a while, we get an unwelcome visitor who knocks on our door – SCARCITY. He’s not a very fun houseguest. In fact, I’ve experienced him as a downright nuisance and intrusion when he shows up. (And for some reason I envision him as a male energy…so we’ll go with “he” for right […]

Generating Financial Peace of Mind in Your Life

For me, inspiration is often sparked from the most unlikely of places and while it isn’t always easy I’ve trained myself to translate unexpected inspiration into action, for myself and for my clients. Last Thursday was no different as I prepared myself to attend the “Peace of Mind Speaker Series” in Providence, RI. I had […]

Rewriting Your Financial Story to Create an Abundant Life

“I’m not good at managing money.” “You have to work hard for your money.” “You can’t get rich doing what you love.” “If you aren’t born rich, chances are you never will be.” “Financial security comes from having a good job and a steady paycheck.” So you might be asking, what do all of these […]

Building Your Financial Confidence

After meeting with one of my clients earlier this week, I followed up via email to send along her final financial plan (a.k.a. savings and spending plan) after we made some edits during our final session. Her response back to my email was to thank me for the information and for our time together and […]

Living in the Bermuda Triangle of Finances

“When I read your description of the Bermuda Triangle of Finances, I stopped…and then I cried. It was absolutely 100% what’s going on for me.” This was what my newest client shared as she openly and honestly talked about her relationship with money. She had each of the 3 classic symptoms that come with the […]

Moving through Levels of Financial Consciousness

As December rolled around and I sat back to think about the year behind me, I also reflected on the fact that I’d owned Financially Authentic for almost 3 years. 3 YEARS! Wow – where had the time gone? On one hand, I acknowledged myself for the amazing things that I had accomplished and on […]

When Emotions and Money Collide

About 20 minutes into my new workshop the other night, I felt the energy shift in the room. The people attending were taking a few minutes to think about what their energy was when it came to money – was it full of resentment, anger, and upset? Or was it full of gratitude, abundance, and […]

Playing Financial Quarterback in Your Own Life

As I watched the later moments of the Superbowl earlier this week, I was reminded of the beauty of the flow when a team comes together to create amazing results. And while a football team and a football game are certainly different than your financial life, I was still reminded of the importance of being […]
